What Is Red Nose Day?Red Nose Day is a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the process. It all culminates in a night of cracking TV on the BBC with some of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment. And the best bit? All the fun and mayhem helps to raise cash and transform lives across the UK and Africa.
This year alone, £74,360,207 had been raised which is the highest total reached on the night in Red Nose Day's 23 year history.
I volunteered with an organization, Free Cakes for Kids, to put on a baking session for the African Women's Group in a near by neighborhood. We baked dozens of cupcakes decorated in Red Nose style to be sold later that evening at a community bop (dance).

|I had to take control of the spoons because he liked to lick his finger even more than I do...and that's ALOT!|
|Isn't he a cutie!|
|BBC News came to film a segment for the nightly news.|

|Wonderful group of ladies!|
I enjoyed being involved in my new community and making an ever-so-small difference in my own way.
