RED NOSE Day Is Back!

It has been been 13 years since Kiwis have been spotted with red noses!!

But according to TVNZ:

"Red Nose Day is back today, after a long break to raise $1 million for research into life-threatening childhood diseases.
Cure Kids, once known as the Child Health Research Foundation, said a Red Nose day had not been held for 13 years.
Andrea Birtwistle, from Cure Kids, said that the foundation started 30 years ago and had invested $25m in medical research which had helped save hundreds of young lives and improved the quality of life for thousands, she said.
Red nose paraphernalia was on sale at all Shell service stations, Take Note and Paper Plus shops and a street collection would be held today."
