Make your laugh matter
Nose Day, Nenäpäivä, is celebrated so that every child in the world would have a chance to a good and safe life. Every year, the happy campaign invites Finns to support the world’s most vulnerable children. Nose Day is based on the idea that shared humor helps to deal with difficult things and having fun allows people to come together to make the world a better place. With Nose Day charity can be fun and bring a smile to your face.
Nose Day’s assistance for those in need is reliably delivered by nine Finnish organizations whose long-term development cooperation projects support the world’s most vulnerable children in Asia, Africa and South America. Each organization has its own Nose Day projects to support children’s schooling, promote health, provide adequate nutrition, and create safe growing conditions. The expertise of the organizations ensures that the aid reaches its destination and that even a small donation can make a great difference.
Especially during October and November Nose Day is celebrated in Finnish schools, kindergartens, workplaces, companies, hobby groups and homes. Nose Day is also celebrated by the Finnish Broadcasting company YLE which raises money through many favorite programs and channels. The Finnish Nose Day operates by the license of the British Comic Relief and Nose Day resembles Red Nose Day in many ways. This November Nose Day will be celebrated for the 17th time in Finland and the donations have helped so far millions of children – let’s keep on the good work!
