Guest Post: Red Nose Day

Hello everyone :)

My name is Keith and I write the Oh!Bento UK blog. My lovely friend Karen has allowed me to hijack her blog :)

My post today has a slight serious tone but it is well worth it I promise.

In the UK we have a charity raising event called Red Nose Day which helps raise funds for children in Africa. The event is a huge production that features many celebrities taking part in sketches, specials of TV series ( like Doctor Who! ) and many celebrities go to Africa to highlight the horrible conditions in which children live.

I want to do my part so I have made a donation page and have set a small target of £50 ( £15 has already been donated and I hope we can raise more.)

I will be making some Red Nose Day themed bento to help raise awareness of this great event. I hope you can all spread the news as the more people that know, the higher the chance we can make a difference.

And if you can make a small contribution it would be highly appreciated.

More information and donations can be made here.
[Note From Karen: Outside of the UK you can still sponsor ... but you need to fudge the system a bit by entering a proper UK zipcode and street. Feel free to email me and I can hook you up!]

Here is a Red Nose Sandwich to celebrate the first donation :)

And from Karen ... a favorite Red Nose Day sketch in two parts:

  1. Love it! Great guest post Keith! Awesome clips I hadn't seen them before and my little one was excited to get to watch DW as we were getting ready this morning. Great cause too!

  2. Thank you so much for the chance to raise some awareness for this great cause Karen.
    And good idea to show some clips! :p
