Ben Affleck, Paul Rudd, Patrick Dempsey & More Join Red Nose Day

Paul Rudd · Red Nose Day

Ben Affleck, Jack Black, Orlando Bloom, Patrick Dempsey, Paul Rudd and more will be part of “The Red Nose Day Special,” airing Thursday, May 25 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Paul Rudd will make an appeals trip to a rural area of Maine that has been hit hard by recession.  He’ll show why donations are so urgently needed and spotlight the critical programs relying on Red Nose Day funds to keep children healthy, safe and ensure they don’t go hungry. In addition to that, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced this week that it will match up to $1 million in donations made to Red Nose Day in the U.S. using Facebook’s charitable giving tools — enabling people to double the impact of their contribution.
