We’ve all heard of Red Nose Day in Britain, and its success in using comedy to raise funds for people who need financial help – but what if we turn the colour of the nose from red to blue, what would that represent?
The Hope for Children CRC Policy Centre has done just that in order to support the Choose Hope campaign and, in turn, raise funds and awareness about children’s rights.
This blue nose – blue because blue symbolises hope and sensitivity towards children – is currently being sold at the counters of Alfa Mega Supermarkets for €2.
This is your chance to support a good cause, spread some love and all with a touch of fun – and why not, instead of giving Rudolf a red nose this year, make it a blue one.
If you want to go a step further and help spread the message on social media, you can share a photo of yourself wearing the nose together with the hashtag #ChooseHopeCy.
Choose Hope will hopefully become an annual campaign, to be run around the Christmas period by the international humanitarian institution that aims to protect the rights of children.
Blue noses will be sold until December 10, so get your coins ready at the till and exit the supermarket with a spot of blue on your face.
