When I first heard about Red Nose Day on May 25, I thought, “Oh, that’s cool. There’s so many kids who need our help in our country and around the world.”
But then I dug a bit deeper and learned about all the very practical ways that Red Nose Grants help kids and decided I wanted to get involved. For instance, through Red Nose Day grants, funding is provided to 15 nonprofits across New Orleans impacting 25,000 youth. One of the beneficiaries is Elevate, a program that makes a difference in the community by combining rigorous academic support and basketball training.
This is just one of many ways that Red Nose Day helps kids in poverty.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own small world of youth sports and work and family. Red Nose Day is a great opportunity to make your kids aware of other kids who don’t have all the advantage that they do. At the very least, go to Walgreens, buy some red noses at the checkout counter and post your red nose pics on Instagram, FaceBook or Twitter. How about a Red Nose team picture?
P.S. Walgreens didn’t compensate me in any way for this post. I saw the Elevate video and always love to share the ways that youth sports can be used to impact young lives.
