The word "selfie" has been crowned word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries for 2013, but many don’t know about the 'unselfie.'

If a selfie is a picture of one who unabashedly takes a photograph of themselves, then an unselfie would be the exact opposite. Someone who instead covers their face with a piece of paper urging others to donate to a worthy a cause. In this instance, the cause is the typhoon that affected many in the Philippines.

The selfie is considered by many to be the symbol of today’s self-indulgent youth. It’s good to know that when it really matters, we can all come together for a good cause. Hopefully all these unselfies will lead to tangible results.
