Inaugural Red Nose Day!

Inaugural Red Nose Day!

OPX is participating the inaugural Red Nose Day in the US. The campaign, which has raised over $1 billion for organizations that address poverty in the UK, makes it debut in the US on May 21, 2015.

How Is OPX Getting Involved?

We’re dusting off our noses and flaunting them around the office to raise funds for Red Nose Day. Our fundraising page is live and we need your help to reach our goal of $1,500. Want to donate in person? We’re hosting two bake sales at 21 Dupont Circle NW, Washington, DC between the hours of 12-2PM on May 4th and May 18th.

What Is Red Nose Day?

Red Nose day is a campaign thrown by the nonprofit organization Comic Relief,  dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by having fun and making people laugh.
