To those who aren't familiar with Comic Relief, a.k.a Red Nose Day, it's basically a charity organisation in the UK that raises money for the poor - in the UK itself and also in Africa. Comic Relief probably started some time in the late 80's and has since become a nation event that has grown rather commercial. Well, corporate sponsors grab the opportunity to run a stint, "all for a good cause".
My children were very excited to go to school today because it's "Wear red to school" day!! To top it all up, the children were charged 20p for coming to school dressed in something red. A comical action indeed! I had to explain to the kids what the underlying theory was: to contribute to the charity.
When I sent them to school this morning, I couldn't help laughing when I saw what some of the other kids had on.
My children? Little D was a Power Ranger but the others were too shy to be comical about their appearance!
