Red Nose Day Finally Makes It to the U.S.
 
So what else are we missing out on? It took humanity close to 2,000 years to come up with Red Nose Day, a simple motion of clamping a red ball to one’s face to raise money — $1 a “nose” — for charities that help young people in poverty.

NBC, Walgreens, and M&Ms are bringing Red Nose Day to the U.S. for the first time from the U.K., where it originated in 1988. It’s such a simple, yet hearty, device, you’d think we would have been plastering ourselves with them since the invention of plastic. But no…

So, while we’re waiting for May 21 to arrive, what else could be simple PR fun that we’re still missing out on?
