One of the most memorable sessions from the 2007 Global Leadership Summit was Bill Hybels’ interview with British filmmaker, Richard Curtis. Curtis’ filmmaking credits include Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary and Love Actually.
He is also the producer and creative mind behind the British fundraiser Comic Relief, better known as Red Nose Day. This televised event has become an inspiring cultural phenomenon in the UK, combining comedy with cause. During the past 30 years, it has raised more than £1 billion for charities that seek to alleviate and end global poverty.
Now, Red Nose Day is coming to America – airing live tonight (May 21) on NBC. Watch the video and relive the inspiration for Curtis’ “grander vision” for this event.
