Happy Red Nose Day

Today is a big day in the UK. It’s called “Red Nose Day: Do Something funny for money”. It’s a HUGE fund raising event all over the UK. You do something funny for money (eg. one of the schools head master said that he would shave his head of his long hair if they raised enough money… and things like that) – people all over their jobs had to dress up really funny. You saw people walking around town in like their PJ’s – its almost like a whole ‘nother Halloween 🙂 It’s all over the place – I will be buying a nose so that I can support is as well. *I bought 2 – one is going home to you Bailey (sometime *smiles*), and I won a traveler’s case for your shampoo, etc. when I bought a raffle ticket. You raise money and at the end of the day all these famous Britian actors/singers/comics provide you with a night of comic relief. These funds are shared to help people in Africa, as well as people who’re struggling in the UK.
I think it’s a wonderful event!
If you want to know a bit more about it, here is a website you should go to. It tells you about it:

“In schools, offices and homes across the land, everyone wears – you’ve guessed it – the latest Red Nose- this year there’s 3 to choose from – and does whatever tickles their fancy to raise cash. You name it, they do it! From sponsored kissathons and flamboyant fancy dress to gungetastic trials and naked pole vaulting. Ok, we made the last one up.” (directly FROM: )

To tell you what the weather is like – I was able to walk into the city centre (20 min walk) in only a long sleeve shirt, and my hoodie. It was a really nice day, but boy does it get chilly at night 🙂

    Isn’t this fun? My young nieces raised over three hundred pounds for Red Nose charities. I am so proud of them!
