“Red Nose Day, Actually” Is Fun & Raises Funds for People in Need

As a fan of Love Actually, I am thrilled to learn there is a sequel. Red Nose Day, Actually will air May 25, 2017 in the United States on NBC. It airs tonight in the United Kingdom…

Love Actually Sequel to Screen on Red Nose Day 2017 | The Guardian

“…A notoriously polarising film, Love Actually’s cultural currency has grown in the 14 years since it was released. The film has been repeatedly unpicked, spoofed and deconstructed; four foreign language films – in Japanese, Hindi, Polish and Dutch – have also been inspired by the movie.” ~ Catherine Shoard

Red Nose Day Is Fun & Raises Funds for People in Need

Red Nose Day is a day for fun and fundraising. This year, the United Kingdom celebrates it on March 24. Charitable contributions focus on “a range of issues, from homelessness and mental health to dementia and vulnerable young people.”

American Red Nose Day is celebrated on May 25 this year. Raised funds are dedicated “to help children who are most in need, both in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities in the world.”

In case your memory of Love, Actually has faded, revisit the scene where the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) dances to The Pointer Sisters’ “Jump For My Love.” (Haven’t we all been caught doing something like that?) <3

    The dance is one of my favorites in the movie. I am looking forward to the sequel as well.

    I donated yesterday to a good cause in the Red Nose Day appeal.. A celebrity on the radio did a 24hour dance.. I often listen to her show.. They give help to some very needy projects.. I end up in tears and my granddaughter’s school did a bake day to raise funds too..
    Thank you for sharing.. Love and Hugs Sue

      That 24 hour dance reminds me of the Jerry Lewis telethons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, here in the states. (I don’t know if they were aired elsewhere.) Love & Hugs back at you, Sue. <3
