Who will you wear your red nose for?

In the story of the red nose, titled Back Home to You, a Red Nose is more than something you wear.  

“It’s more precious and more valuable than that – and worth searching for. Once found, a Red Nose becomes a beacon. A collectible treasure to be worn your own way… or given to someone in need,” says Raymond McGrath, Back Home to You author and illustrator.  

By owning your own red nose, you, like the characters in our book, are part of something special.  An exclusive team of ‘explorers’ – researchers, scientists, doctors, Mum’s and Dad’s, brother’s and sister’s, friends and whanau – all searching tirelessly to find hope for someone you love.

Get your red nose from one of our supporting retail partners and wear it proudly this September.


Red Nose Day merchandise will be available nationwide at Briscoes, Living & Giving, Rebel Sport, Columbus Coffee, Smiths City, Accor Hotels and other Red Nose Day partners throughout September.
