every other year, Red Nose Day will be observed on Friday, March 24, 2017.
silly tradition began in 1985 when UK comedians created Comic
Relief to use comedy and laughter to alert the public
to poverty in the UK and in Africa.

and just plain upstanding individuals who do something funny for money - and welcome the opportunity
to help the world's needy and vulnerable.
