Red Nose Day 2019 lift kids out of poverty

Red Nose Day 2019 is on a mission to help lift kids out of poverty. People from all walks of life are encouraged to get involved, have fun and raise money by buying red noses sold exclusively at Walgreens stores nationwide, organizing fundraising events and watching and donating during the television special on NBC stations around the country including WSLS 10.

Where is your red nose?

If you have not bought your red nose yet, you can get them exclusively at Walgreens.

It's that that time again. For the second year, NBC is teaming up with "Red Nose Day" along with Giuliana Rancic and more celebrities. It's a star-studded event with incredible performances with the theme "Get seriously silly."

The special live event aims to raise awareness and money to helps kids out of poverty.

Red Nose Day first launched in the UK and has since raised more than $1 billion globally in the last 25 years.

This year, Craig Ferguson will host "The Red Nose Day 2019 Special" on Thursday, May 23 at 8 p.m., to help raise money and help change lives of kids who need it the most.

12 News had the chance to chat with Rancic, you might recognize her from "E! News."

We asked Rancic why it meant so much to her to be part of charities and events like "Red Nose Day."

"You know, I think one place it comes from is being a mom," said Rancic.

"The noses are a dollar, but those dollars add up so quickly and to truly take part in something that truly will make a difference."

If you already have your red nose or would like take a look at pictures of people snapping a picture with their red noses on, go ahead and just use the hashtag #RedNose.

We would love to see your red nose in support of this special event. You can also use our hastag #BeOn12 if you would like to connect with us.
