No Makeup Selfie

The last few days a new viral trend has blown up on social media sites. The trend is that of the 'No Makeup Selfie.' Girls post photos of themselves on social media sites with no makeup on, donate on average €4 to the Irish Cancer Society or Action Breast Cancer and urge others to do the same. 

It's fantastic to see such a positive thing that is raising awareness of breast cancer, reminding women to check themselves and donating money to such a worthy cause at the same time. It definitely makes a change from the #Neknominations and seems to have caught on more than the #Raknominations. 

Here's my no makeup selfie below!

As is usual with everything that seems to go viral, there have been naysayers commenting on how the no makeup selfie alone is not helping anyone. They have been proved to be wrong as donations to the Irish Cancer Society have soared in the last 48 hours to over €500,000. 

If you want to take part, I urge you to donate to one of the cancer research societies. You can do this online or via text by texting PINK to 50300 to donate €4 now. 

One in ten Irish women will get breast cancer but 8 out of 10 will survive thanks to breakthrough treatments, greater awareness and participation in screening. 
Now go check your breasts!
