Today is Red Nose Day, an international campaign to raise funds for children living in poverty. This is the third consecutive year where NBC is joining the effort with a one-hour special. However, this year, Red Nose Day will completely take over the network’s primetime schedule. Below is a complete list of every celebrity you’ll see between 8 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.
According to RedNoseDay.org, the organization has raised over $1 billion to end child poverty around the world in the past 25 years. In 2016 alone, the program helped over 2.6 million children.
