Support Red Nose Day to Help Children in Poverty

I had an amazing opportunity to participate in a media call regarding Red Nose Day with actor Jack Black and Oscar-nominated writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill).

red nose day 2015

Curtis started “Red Nose Day” in the UK nearly 30 years ago, which has raised more than $1 billion for charity. He believes the United States is a country of such great comedy and generosity that it seemed natural to bring it to the U.S. May 21 marks the first Red Nose Day in America, complete with a star-studded fundraising event on NBC at 7 pm. Curtis says he hopes to get lots of laughs and emotional moments during the live broadcast. Part of the emotion will come from videos, such as the one with Jack Black.

“I didn’t want to send experts out to investigate poverty,” Curtis remarks. “I wanted a human being reacting to a human being.”

Jack Black Goes to Uganda

As a result, Curtis asked Jack Black to travel to Uganda to help raise awareness of children in poverty. Although Black didn’t feel he was the right guy for the opportunity in the beginning, he said he jumped on board because he wanted to do some good.

red nose day jack black“I was out there as a reporter to let people know where their money would be going,” Black says. “But I was the one doing most of the learning that day — not teaching. I was the eyes and ears in Africa for Red Nose Day.”

When Black meets new people he likes to use the international language of laughter. And despite the poverty in the slums of Uganda, the kids had smiles and laughter with Black. Especially with the flurry of red nose activity when all the kids wanted to try it on!

“These kids have magic in them. They need to be not only rescued but nurtured,” Black remarks. “They are something really special.”

Black especially bonded with one 12-year-old, Felix, who lived on his own. The emotion caused him not to keep his “promise” of not crying on the trip.

“When you can relate to someone in trouble, you’re more likely to lend a hand,” Black says. “It was a painful but also a beautiful day. I’m really glad I got to go and experience that.”

To donate $10 to Red Nose Day, text DANCE to 80077. Get more info on the live broadcast television fundraiser here. {I know it’s going against the Rockets’ playoff game, but it will be fantastic! DVR one of them!}
