In the spirit of spreading laughter and awareness, several members of The Nations Law Firm staff donned their red noses in recognition of Walgreens “Red Nose Day.” A tradition which began in the United Kingdom is being celebrated at Walgreens nationwide with the selling of red noses, pens and wrist bands which supports non-profit organizations that help lift children and young people out of poverty in the United States and overseas.
“Happiness and health are at the heart of Walgreens’ mission and at the heart of what Red Nose Day is all about. Just the simple, silly act of putting on a red nose means that anyone can benefit children in poverty,” said Alex Gourlay, president of Walgreens. “We’re thrilled to join Red Nose Day as the exclusive red nose retailer in the U.S. and encourage our entire Walgreens family – our customers, employees, and vendor partners – to join us in having a good laugh for a good cause.”
The noses, pens and wrist bands are on sale at Walgreens’ stores through May 30. Proceeds benefit the Red Nose Day Fund, which supports the following pre-selected charity partners: Boys & Girls Clubs of America; Charity: Water; Children’s Health Fund; Feeding America; Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund; LIFT; National Council of La Raza; National Urban League; Oxfam America; Save the Children and United Way.
