You can track the Gates Foundation donations at nbc.com/rednose25 .

    Money from the NBC special and supplemental efforts will go to organizations helping poor children in the United States and elsewhere in the world.

    Charity partners include Boys & Girls Clubs of America; charity: water; Children’s Health Fund; Feeding America; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund; LIFT; National Council of La Raza; National Urban League; Oxfam America; Save the Children and United Way.
