COLUMBUS - State Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) Thursday announced the introduction of a resolution in the Ohio Senate officially recognizing May 25 as Red Nose Day, a campaign aimed at supporting charities fighting child poverty in Ohio, the United States, and around the world.

"I am proud to join this effort to help raise awareness for children's hunger here in the U.S. and around the world," said Balderson. "By officially recognizing Red Nose Day, we can help bolster support for the countless charities here in Ohio carrying the banner for these worthy causes."

Since its inception in 1988, Red Nose Day and its affiliated supporters have raised more than $1 billion globally, including $60 million here in the United States since 2015. Supported charities include Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Feeding America, Children’s Health Fund, The Vaccine Alliance, The Global Fund, and Save the Children, among others.

Red Nose Day provides the following services to children living in impoverished areas:

  • Meals for children through the Feeding America food banks
  • Essential immunizations for children in need
  • A safe place for at risk children in America to go to during the summer and after school
  • Food, clothing, shelter and medical care to help keep children off the streets
