Staff at the local Walgreens store located at 9184 E Valencia Rd in Rita Ranch went out into the community to talk to local stores, shops, and businesses to get the word out about Red Nose Day. Employees sold Red Nose’s for one dollar, took some group photos and basically “Getting Seriously Silly.” They were able to sell over 350 Red Noses in two hours and in the past six weeks sold over 4300. Globally, over one billion dollars have been raised in the past twenty-five years.
Half of the money distributed by Red Nose Day 2016 will be spent in the U.S., while the other half will support international causes. Domestically, funds raised have gone to support local food banks, reading programs, and preventative health care. Internationally, funds raised have helped to provide clean water and sanitation, vaccines, in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Thanks to all the businesses in Rita Ranch community and surrounding areas helping the cause! For more information visit, http://rednoseday.org/our-impact/
