Red Nose Day: Celebrity Game Night

If you’ve been feeling like giving back lately, donating to organizations or charities to help those less fortunate, there’s no better day than today. Red Nose Day brings together celebrities and their fans in a fun way for the greatest cause.

The cause is simply to help children. Within the USA and worldwide, kids everywhere are helped with the money raised by Red Nose Day. To help bring the initiative into the homes of people around the US, NBC dedicated a night of programming to the cause.

Celebrity Game Night brought in some incredible celebs for their big episode.

Kelly Clarkson, Sean Hayes, Jack Black, Chelsea Handler, Isla Fisher, Sarah Silverman, Sasheer Zamata and Cedric the Entertainer joined Jane Lynch for the Red Nose Day special.

Playing fan favorite games like Clue-Boom and Odd-O-Tune – the stars kept us all in stitches while raising money for an incredible cause.

One of our favorite parts was during Lil’ Picassos where art from children is showcased and the celebs had to guess who they’d drawn. Everyone from Ed Sheeran to Snoop Dog was drawn.

Team Kelly was up after the first two rounds with $15,000 while team Jack raked in 0. There was still time to catch up though. After 4 games, Team Jack was up $35,000 to $15,000 – however, the real winners were the kids.

Red Nose Day is an initiative aimed to help children both in the US and worldwide. From clean drinking water to safe places to go to medical assistance, there is no project to great or too small.

At the end of the show, $150,000 was raised with the help of M&M.
