Red Nose Day - part 2

A while back I had posted about the topic of a Red Nose Day back in the UK and how a similar fund-raising event should be presented to the Arab world - specifically, the Sultanate of Oman as a starting point.

The point of this even was to involve the community and society both into a charity day that not only presents the fun factor that all the festivals could not claim to have come to (although the event is not in direct competition to make a standard against such attractions) but to also create the awareness that is much needed to educate people - the youth, mostly - amongst themselves to push open the boundaries between different lives that we walk among.

I am happy to announce that I am looking into the possibility of having such an event come to reality here in the Sultanate.

We are still at the starting point and details along the way will be given away on a need-to-know basis.

Just thought I'd let you all know that.
