Be Silly for a Serious Cause

SIDS & Kids Red Nose Day is Friday 25th June this year and we at Metro Property Management fully support this worthy cause. Red Nose Day (first began in 1988) is a day where you can wear a red nose (if being a ‘clown’ is not already your occupation!) and make a fool of yourself to raise money for a great organization.

SIDS & Kids benefits those that have experienced the death of a baby or child during pregnancy, birth and infancy. They offer a 24hr 7 day a week bereavement support line and offer ongoing support via counseling. The funds raised from the day also go not only to keeping this vital 24hr hotline running but to educate parents, childcare workers & health professionals on how to reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The organization also conducts research into the prevention and possible causes of the unexpected death of babies and children.

For more information on this great cause please visit the Red Nose Day website and donate online. Alternatively visit a retail store that supports the organization and buy something for yourself, a friend or your children. It’s not just red noses for people, there are red noses for cars too! There’s plush toys, pens, lapel pins, lip balm and bracelets. So why not get involved and keep this charity and their research running for many more years to come.
