Red Nose Day at Your Delray Beach Dentist
The staff and doctors at Advanced Dentistry South Florida are doing their part to help fight global childhood poverty by accepting non-perishable food items in our office in Delray Beach, Florida. The items given to our office will be donated to the Covenant House and Feeding America.
What is Red Nose Day 2016?
Red Nose Day is held on May 26th and provides support for children that are hungry, homeless and in need of medical care. This is a fun way of raising awareness about a serious issue that we are faced with daily, and the donations you give will have a great impact on the lives of many less fortunate children.
What is the impact of Red Nose Day?
Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. This year, half of the money distributed by this cause will be spent right here in the United States. The other portion will be distributed in the poorest parts of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. The money raised and distributed will help support various projects that keep kids safe, educated and healthy.
Last year in 2015, Red Nose Day raised $23 million to help change the lives of children all over the world and here in the United States. To help you understand the impact this special day has had, let’s break it down:
- 7.8 million meals and counting for children in the U.S. across all 50 states
- 200,000 more children in the U.S. are reading with a safe place to go after school
- Over 1 million preventative disease-fighting drugs have been given to children, pregnant women and others abroad to help fight malaria and HIV
- Over 50,000 children and families now have medical service, especially in low income and homeless families
- Over 30,000 families in Africa now have clean water and sanitation
- 170,000 life saving vaccines for children under the age of 5 in Africa
