How many things can give you terrific joy for just $1? Not too many. Queue the clowns.

Well, that's what Walgreens has done anyhow. Walgreens is the exclusive retail partner of the first Red Nose Day to be celebrated in America. It's all about raising funds to benefit children in poverty and champion their right to be happy and healthy. The idea is use a little humor (hence the red nose) to get folks interested in giving back.

Laughter is great medicine. Ask any mom how she gets through the rough spots of parenting and you'll hear a good laugh goes a long way. That's why Walgreens enlisted 10 moms to become the founding circle of the Red Nose Club. I flew out to Chicago with this amazing group of women to shine a light on the cause and encourage moms and families to get involved.

The ladies clowned around in store and brainstormed on ideas to get the word out about the campaign. Of course the #RedNose selfie was a clear winner!
