Red Nose Day 09! win some Red Nose goodies

Winners of my Red Nose gear are: Gail, Martha, and Lynn. Thanks to everyone who donated!

Remember that sketch from a while back featuring David Tennant as a schoolteacher and Catherine Tate as his annoying student? (You can watch it here.) It’s from the 2007 installment of Comic Relief, a British charity effort to raise money to fight poverty around the world. And this year’s Comic Relief is coming up on Friday, March 13 — David Tennant will be appearing again.

Of course, you have to be in the U.K. to see it — it’ll air on BBC One and Two from 7pm to 1:30am — but I’m sure the rest of us will get the best snippets via YouTube soon after.

In the meantime, though, you — the loyal and dedicated and wonderful readers of FlickFilosopher.com — and I are gonna do our part to help out. People all over the U.K. are getting in on the fun with Red Nose Day — also Friday, March 13 — by doing something funny for money, and donating the cash to Red Nose Day. I’ve dressed up like a loon — as you can see to the left — for this worthy cause. But you don’t even have to do that. All you have to do is donate a bit of dough via the FlickFilosopher Red Nose Day page. You don’t need to be in the U.K. to donate — just use your credit card. (Be aware that if you’re not in the U.K., your credit card company will likely charge a currency conversion fee of up to 3 percent for the transaction.) And you don’t have to donate a ton of cash, either: a little goes a long way.

Can the readers of FlickFilosopher.com raise £5,000? I bet we can!

Please give as much as you can — everyone who donates via the FlickFilosopher Red Nose Day page will be entered to win one of three Red Nose prize packs: a red nose, a T-shirt, a pen, a pin, and Post-it notes. (You can see what all this stuff looks like in the Red Nose Shop.) If you’re in the U.K., you can buy stuff online in the Red Nose Shop or in shops including Sainbury’s, T.K. Maxx, Oxfam, and others. I picked up all these goodies in London last month — the proceeds go to Red Nose Day, of course, so the winners can consider that another donation to the cause in their honor — and I’m delighted to be able to share them with you.

I got the ball rolling with a donation of £25. When you donate, drop me an email so I’ll know it’s you in the “My Donors” list on my Red Nose Day page. And leave a message on my wall there, too!

A few rules:

1) There’s no minimum donation required for entry into the giveaway, but be a sport and give at least £5 (about US$7.50 at the moment).

2) I’ll ship prizes to anyone, anywhere, as long as you have a mailing address I can send them to. Winners are responsible for any customs duties they may incur if my prize package has to cross borders. (The overall value of the package is only about $25, though, so it’s not much.)

3) Don’t forget to drop me an email after you donate.

4) Deadline to donate is whenever Red Nose Day stops accepting donations, or March 31, whichever is sooner.
