The “Every One Counts Hometown Challenge” will feature 10 markets – deemed ‘Red Rally Markets’ for their integral role in rallying the nation to end child poverty – going nose-to-nose in a challenge to raise the most money for the Red Nose Day cause.
“By inspiring the simple act of purchasing a Red Nose, we hope to continue to demonstrate the impact of ‘Every One Counts,’ our belief that helping to end child poverty can start with just one Red Nose at Walgreens,” said Adam Holyk, Walgreens chief marketing officer and CSR leader.
“The ‘Every One Counts Hometown Challenge’ is a spirited initiative that allows our customers and communities to come together as champions for children in need,” Holyk added. “By inspiring the simple act of purchasing a Red Nose, we hope to continue to demonstrate the impact of ‘Every One Counts,’ our belief that helping to end child poverty can start with just one Red Nose at Walgreens.”
