Red Nose Day, an annual campaign that uses the power of entertainment to raise money and awareness for children living in poverty, is quickly approaching on May 25. But one superstar got a jump on the spirit of giving back with a recent trip to meet with homeless and parentless children in Liberia.
Rocker Ed Sheeran recently journeyed to the country on behalf of Red Nose Day. He met with a number of children to highlight their often heartbreaking stories. He also created a short video, "What Do I Know?" highlighting his experience.
Red Nose Day launched in America in 2015 and has raised more than $60 million in its first two years in the U.S. People across the country are encouraged to support the cause by coming together and wearing their red noses, organizing fund-raising events and watching and donating during the night of Red Nose Day programming on NBC.
The campaign's iconic red noses are sold exclusively at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide.
