What can I say, I don`t have many excuses for this long period of absence, but really it was a long busy period!
So, I disappeared because at the end of this month I will finish the first part of my certification to become a Montessori kindergarten teacher and of course I was super busy doing assignments, and looking for my internship.
After about two months of emails and school appointments around Redmond and I think I’ve finally found one.
But for now, no comments about it!
Sofia has had several injuries at gym, her back, her knees now her foot, in short we say that it is not really her best period, then one of her favorite coaches had to leave for reasons not yet completely clear, so surely this didn`t help!
My “host dad” and my “host mom” are traveling a lot for work, China, Japan, Vegas, Germany and Italy.
About that, this weekend my “host mom” will meet for the first time my super beautiful Family!
What an emotion!!!!!!!!
In short, two months full and super busy. But in these two months my focus has also fallen on a fun and important event which involve children all over the world.
Red Nose Day!!
The Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising funds for children and young people who live in poverty simply by having fun and laughing at people.
The inaugural day of the Red Nose was held in the United States on May 21, 2015. People across the country gathered to have fun and raise funds. The day’s events are broadcast on television as a special three-hour entertainment on NBC, with favorite comedians, musicians, singers and Hollywood stars.
But let’s take a few steps back:
The Red Nose Day was born with the name “Comic Relief” as a British operative association, founded in 1985 by writer Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to famine in Ethiopia.
The strong point of Comic Relief’s appeal is the Red Nose Day, a two-year telethon held in March, alternating with the sister project Sport Relief. Comic Relief is an important biennial event of British folk culture, one of the two highest-profile teletext events held in the UK, the other being called “Children in Need,” and is held every year in November. Comic Relief was launched live on Noel Edmonds’ Late, a complimentary breakfast on the BBC1, on Christmas Day 1985 by a refugee camp in Sudan. The idea of Comic Relief came to charity worker Jane Tewson, who established the Comic Relief a Charity Projects project, a registered association in England and Scotland. On April 4, 1986, he was promoted to Shaftesbury Theater in London with alternative comedies and pop stars (including Rowan Atkinson, Billy Connolly, Stephen Fry, Lenny Henry, Kate Bush and Cliff Richard). An audio recording was released on WEA that included a live performance of Cliff Richard’s “Living Doll” and the Young Ladies. On February 8, 1988, Lenny Henry went to Ethiopia and celebrated the first day of red-tailed Telethon. Over 150 celebrities and comedians participated. The event raised £ 15 million in English and attracted 30 million television viewers to the BBC1. The culmination of Comic Relief is the Red Nose Day. To date, Richard Curtis and Lenny Henry are still active in the Red Nose Telethon, which continues to raise funds for numerous associations that help children in need and face world poverty. The association states that its purpose is to “bring about a positive and lasting change in the lives of poor and disadvantaged people, which we feel is necessary to invest in jobs that respond to the immediate needs of the population and address the root causes of poverty and poverty, injustice” One of the key principles behind the work of Comic Relief is the “Golden Pound Prince”, where every single pound (£) is donated to charity projects. All operating costs, such as staff salaries, are covered by corporate sponsors or interest earned on cash pending to be distributed. Currently, its main supporters are the BBC, BT, the Sainsbury supermarket chain and British Airways. The BBC is responsible for the extraordinary TV broadcast on the Red Nose Day; BT provides phone and Sainsbury sells goods on behalf of the association.
I find the famous Red Nose in one of the American super-brands called Walgreen for a dollar.
I decide to buy it because I read that it will help children and so here comes my research on the Red Nose Day!
I know that there are so many associations dealing with children in poverty, I know that many people think that this dollar will probably never come to one of those children.
We live in a cynical world and unfortunately this means to doubt so much about whoever asks for money for a cause.
We are human beings, specials and uniques because we make mistakes, but we must never stop believing in us.
So this doesn’t want to be an advertising post for a charity association.
I found the red nose, I did my research, and I found it a nice story, the red nose is a nice symbol, a message of hope for everyone. All this made me think of my little blog and a thought it would be nice to share it with you.
So, since I believe in human beings, I bought my red nose and I also had a lot of fun wearing it!!!
I hope you will do the same…
