Red Nose Day Has Local Slant

Red Nose Day is com­ing. It’s this Thurs­day, and it’s designed to raise money for chil­dren and young peo­ple liv­ing in poverty. Cor­po­rate part­ners Wal­greens and M&M’s stand behind the efforts to raise money Thurs­day, which will be donated to 12 char­i­ties that ben­e­fit young peo­ple. Locally, stu­dents at Holy Cross Catholic School in Defi­ance will be involved with activ­i­ties such as sell­ing jeans passes today for $1, which will allow stu­dents to wear jeans on Thurs­day instead of their reg­u­lar uni­form. Tues­day is crazy make-up day, where for 50 cents a stu­dent can have his/her face painted in the form of some crazy shape. Wednes­day — Stu­dents will be sell­ing “red” items dur­ing the day. Items can include red stick­ers, red pen­cils, red cook­ies, red candy, red drinks, etc. Thurs­day — Stu­dents in grades 6–8 will wear the red noses pur­chased from Wal­greens. Mean­while, stu­dents in every grade are spon­sor­ing a rock­ing marathon, where they get spon­sors to pay them so they can rock in a rock­ing chair in their class­room at 15-minute inter­vals. The point is make sure the stu­dents get enough spon­sor­ship to keep their classroom’s rock­ing chair rock­ing dur­ing the school day. To help spon­sor a stu­dent at Holy Cross for the rock­ing marathon, call 419–784-2021. For more infor­ma­tion about Red Nose Day, go to
