Red Nose Day is a biannual charitable event in the UK hosted by Comic Relief. It is incredibly popular, with huge numbers of the population getting involved in helping the charity realise their vision of a just world, free from poverty. In 2015 the charity's total fundraising passed the £1 billion mark. In 2017, Grey London joined forces with Red Nose Day to create the Swear Jar - a mobile app that uses Google's voice recognition technology to spot expletives over a set period of time. For every swear-word it recognised, it donated 20p to Comic Relief supported projects. Brilliantly chosen spokespeople (such as the potty-mouthed Keith Lemon) helped to launch the app, and it was widely promoted by British celebrities - including icons like Stephen Fry.
