Ending Child Poverty, One Nose at a Time.

It's Red Nose Day!
Reading Time | 2 Minutes

While visiting a local Walgreens this morning, I discovered another domain while awaiting checkout: RedNoseDay.org.

Walgreens Red Nose Day

Based on what little I read about while standing in line, I accurately assumed it to be a charity of some sort selling Red Noses as a way to donate and raise awareness for a specific cause.

More specifically, if you’re not familiar with Red Nose Day, it’s an organization and effort to band together to end child poverty, one nose at a time.

I’m not intimately familiar with Red Nose Day or the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., a registered U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity.

But upon reviewing their website, I’ve come to discover this organization has successfully raised over $100 million and changed the lives of over 8 million children in America and around the world in 3 years of service.

So why the red nose? Well, the Red Nose is simple yet powerful, visible and playful. It brings folks together, breaks down barriers, and reminds us all of the power of laughter as medicine for the soul.

To get involve or make a donation, simply visit RedNoseDay.org or your local Walgreens to purchase one or more Red Noses.

Then, don’t forget to tune into NBC for a special night of prime-time programming Celebrating Red Nose Day.

All in all, I was impressed with the domain selection of RedNoseDay.org although the matching .com, RedNoseDay.com, redirects to a HTTPS / SSL page that states the connection for the .com page is not private.

They’ll certainly want to get this fixed to stop the possible traffic leak on their big day! 😳

Thanks and that’s all for now!

This time last month, my wife and I had were afforded an extraordinary opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.

The first bird was attending GoStrategic’s Transforum Event — a conference aimed at bridging the gap between spiritual truth and practical implementation.

The second bird was getting to spend time together with my wife and somewhat invest in our marriage together. 😍

And what a weekend we had commencing Thursday night and convening late Saturday evening.

Just East of Austin sits a town closing in fast on a population of 10,000: Elgin, Texas.

Neighboring cities Elgin and Manor are both in fast competition for which city will break the 10K population tape first as the greater Austin metro bursts at its seams with unbelievable population growth — one of the fastest in the nation.

Elgin is known for many things, but one of its brightest spots of glory is its down-home barbecue from Southside Market and Meyer’s.

Another wrinkle about Elgin many don’t know about is its free concert series held every Friday during the month of April.

Today kicked off another weekend of auctioning for a well-known auction gallery here in Austin.

Although their specialty is antiques and fine art, the Austin Auction Gallery opens for auction today and tomorrow at 10AM for an estates auction.

Little did I realize, I’ve passed this family owned and operated business a number of times to and from going to get a haircut.
