Comic Relief: Red Nose Day is here!
The idea was simple... 'a whole bunch of much-loved British comedians to make the public laugh while they raised money to help people in desperate need'.
Since its launch from a Sudanese refugee camp on Christmas Day 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £800 million to tackle poverty and social injustice both at home in the UK and abroad.
This year's Red Nose Day is bigger than ever and there's no shortage of people giving up their time – and in one case hair follicles – to tickle to the great British public.
Celebrities are getting in on the action too. Graham Norton chatted his way though a six hour 'banter extravaganza', Miranda Hart is dog training and wedding planning her way through 5 days of mad challenges and tonight, singer Jessie J will be shaving her head live on BBC1!
Whether you're sponsoring a workmate, challenging a celebrity or making a simple donation, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved and raise money.

Bake it Like Berry
Inspired by Mary Berry's Great Comic Relief British Bake Off, we held a bake sale at Moonfruit HQ last month - scoffing our way to raise £200 for Comic Relief and adding a few inches to our waistlines too!
