'No Makeup Selfies' turned one of the most self-involved photo shoots into a charitable act. Social media was recently bombarded with a storm of #NoMakeUpSelfie hashtags and makeup-free photos.
Cancer Research UK began the photography sensation to raise money and promote cancer awareness. Thousands of women all over the world snapped and posted their natural faces for a good cause. The selfies inspired many people to selflessly donate money via text message and on the Cancer Research's website. Celebrities also caught onto the selfie movement. The selfies resulted in more than 800,000 donations.
Selfies may be annoying but they are infectious and it's so good to see so many people coming together with selfies for a good cause. They are such a nice change from those horrible past selfie fads such as selfies at funerals.
