As part of the Comic Relief Campaign, Stella McCartney has designed several Red Nose t-shirts, which are all made in Africa and support. The Beatles, Madonna and Morecame & Wise, and even a baby bunny photographed by Mary McCartney each adorn their own tee or tank. Red Nose Day, March 13, 2009 encourages participants to Do Something Funny for Money in its effort to raise funds to fight poverty in the UK and abroad in Africa.

The issues common to many youth today include drinking, mental health and exploitation and Comic Relief works to fund creative projects aimed at helping kids overcome these. Internationally, Comic Relief also fund programs working on HIV/AIDS programs, slums, trafficking, child labor and emergency response.
Tshirts are selling for just a few pounds for kids tees and roughly 10 pounds for adult tees. With each tee, (depending on the price), £3, £5, or £8 will be donated to Comic Relief. The cotton for the t-shirts is all sourced from 100% fair-trade, certified organic cotton cooperatives in Africa.
