RED (RAY BECK) 28 .6.01 SARAH DOWN FOR RED NOSE DAY AT ST ANDREWS KINDERGARTEN

You can help reduce the deaths of nine children a day to zero by supporting Red Nose Day this Friday.

Now in its 29th year, Red Nose Day is fundamental in highlighting the devastating reality that each year in Australia, more than 3200 babies and children die suddenly and unexpectedly due to stillbirth, SIDS and fatal sleep accidents.

While huge progress has been made by Red Nose since its inception in 1977, there is still a long way to go, and funds raised through Red Nose Day activities enable it to continue its work saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, infancy and childhood, supporting bereaved families, and strengthening research and education programs.

By purchasing a red nose or other Red Nose Day product, making a donation, hosting a children’s fundraising disco or setting up an online fundraising page, you’ll be aiding Red Nose in its mission to reduce the number of deaths of Australian babies and children.

This year’s Red Nose Day products are available to purchase from Big W, Target, and online at rednoseday.com.au
