Popeye joins Red Nose Day in their charitable mission to end child poverty in America and around the world!
2019 marks Red Nose Day’s fifth year in the US, and takes place on Thursday, May 23rd. The campaign has raised nearly $150 million in just four years, which has positively impacted over 16 million children. As part of the organizations’ joint fundraising efforts, King Features and Red Nose Day have developed a limited-edition 2019 campaign tee featuring the beloved sailorman Popeye who is celebrating 90 years strong. In the exclusive design, the spinach-loving sailor wears the iconic Red Nose and bears the Red Nose Day logo in place of his traditional anchor tattoo.
Fans and supporters can become Everyday Heroes, like Popeye, and help to end child poverty through the purchase of this limited-edition Popeye x Red Nose Day tee, available exclusively at rednoseday.org/tshirt. With his sense of justice and his signature can of spinach, Popeye is a character loved by millions of fans around the globe including many celebrity followers who will be lending their influential support throughout the campaign.
The limited-edition t-shirt will retail for $25 with 100% of net proceeds going to the Red Nose Day Fund to help save and change the lives of children in need. Purchases of the tee support programs that benefit children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and some of the poorest communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Created by Oscar nominated and Emmy Award-winning writer-director Richard Curtis, (“Love Actually,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill”), Red Nose Day is about making it fun to come together to raise money and awareness for children who need our help the most, in America and around the world. In addition to buying the t-shirt, fans can find more fun ways to get involved and support this year’s campaign at rednoseday.org.
