Good morning, New Bern Now Readers,
Today is Red Nose Day. “Red Nose Day is a campaign with the mission to end child poverty by funding programs that keep children safe, healthy, educated and empowered. Through the power of entertainment, we bring people together to laugh and have fun, all while raising life-changing cash for the children that need it the most.” – RedNoseDay.org
It’s also National Gray Day, “We celebrate the efforts of our incredible volunteers and honor the lives of brain tumor patients and their caregivers. The National Day of Gray concludes a month of action, awareness, and support for the brain tumor community, and is a moment to reflect, remember, and appreciate all those who make change possible.” – National Brain Tumor Society
