The Red Nose Institute is a non profit, 501 (c) (3) corporation designed to put a smile on the faces of our troops overseas. Designed by a clown and with the help of clowns and friends around the world, this program was launched in July 2007. The idea is for folks who care about our military to donate red foam noses. Monetary donations are also accepted and used to
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.
purchase even more noses and also to help with mailing costs. The noses are then mailed to U.S. troops deployed anywhere overseas. A letter is enclosed with each package telling that the folks sending them are extremely proud of our military and thankful for what they are doing on
our behalf. Servicemen and women are encouraged to share the noses with someone who might need a smile and possibly to share them with the nearby children. There is NO COST to our military or to anyone requesting noses.
We all know that relieving stress is of the utmost importance! If sending red noses to troops can help do this, our job has been accomplished!
If you would like to donate to this cause, please mail red foam noses, or a check to the address above, or use our convenient PayPal Button on the left. If you are a clown, include a picture of yourself and we will send it with the package!
Requests are already coming in from military units who want to be included in this project! If you have the address of a military unit, or someone special whom you would like to participate, please send it to the above e-mail address or to the P. O. Box. Or, if you are deployed and would like to receive noses, contact us! The names & addresses are NEVER passed along!
Our thanks for your participation in helping our troops smile and in supporting this war effort. Our prayers and best wishes to you and to our military! May God Bless!
