Digital Red Nose for Comic Relief

Today is Comic Relief day in the UK - where comedians gather together and try and inspire the UK population to give generously to a wide selection of charities. Since conception 21 years ago, Comic Relief's most prominent aspect has been 'Red Nose Day'. Originally this was about people wearing plastic red noses, however over the years this has evolved with red noses for cars and other things being introduced.

For 2009 there is also a Digital Red Nose, available for a £1 donation from

Once you have logged on to the Digital Red Nose site you make your £1 donation (of which 87p apparently goes to Comic Relief.)

You then upload a photo and start making your red niose picture, choosing a red nose from a selection of 3:

Once finalised the Digital Red Nose site lets you download your picture to your desktop or embed it directly to your Facebook / MySpace / Bebo:

Here is my final effort - me with a Digital Red Nose (!):

All very easy, a nice use of digital and, with over 13,000 downloaded so far, a healthy sum raised for charity.

There is also a Red Nose virtual gift available to purchase on Facebook. All proceeds go to the Comic Relief charity:
