No Make up selfies.
I don’t think it’s “awareness” of the disease per se, it’s awareness of the fact that cancer care and finding a cure isn’t cheap and often undertaken by non-profit making organisations (mainly care). Now, I have my own reservations about many charities and how much money actually goes to the end cause, but that is another argument.
On a side issue: Has anyone seen that advert for makeup that has the line “When I put this on I feel beautiful inside”. Now that is insidious advertising.Posted 3 years agonealgloverMember

as others have probably already said I believe it’s not “cancer awareness” in an LA stylee, there’s supposed to be donations along with the selfie and the awareness isn’t “have you ever heard of cancer, it’s kind of a big deal” it’s about getting people to remember shit like feeling for lumps, not ignoring constant coughs and other stuff.
But yeah some will just be posting the selfie, but in the grand scheme not something to get too worked up about I’d have thought.Posted 3 years agofranksinatraSubscriber
Okay everyone, put your pitchforks down.
The ‘no make-up selfie’ trend has helped charity Cancer Research UK raise more than £1 million through 800,000 text donations since yesterday.
The charity also saw a rise in people donating at their Cancer Research UK shops, and a huge peak in visits to its website.vickypeaMember
I don’t see any harm in it, but I don’t get the idea of posting a photo of yourself without make up as being something of interest, whereas growing a moustache for a month is.Posted 3 years ago
Also, I feel a little frustrated that there are a lot of equally worthy causes that get bog-all funding or attention.
I’m tempted to post on FB that if I post a photo of my backside will anyone donate to a charity of my choice, namely Alzheimer’s research, Bipolar UK, Mind, or Migraine Action. 😀benzMember
There are some right miserable clunts here.
Surely anything which adds to funding for research towards cancer can only be a good thing?
How many folks sitting somewhere on a Thursday evening have now given a donation which in some way will help others and potentially them too – and which they may not otherwise have done.
Might as well slag Davina off too…..but no…good on her for getting off her butt and doing something positive too.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
Funny how any attempt to raise some money to help others gets some people all hot under the collar. I fail to see the problem, if women post up a photo of themselves without the slap on, and they get positive responses, along with helping others, who’s losing? Many women can’t leave the house without makeup, despite looking absolutely fine, so this can only help fight against the Daily Wail’s continual sniping at women, by publishing heavily sharpened photos of celebs without slap, to show how ‘ravaged’ they really are, which is just cruel.
I know quite a few women who hardly wear any, and look fine, and age makes no difference, either. Neither of these two wear any at all, despite some thinking that all young women go out plastered in the stuff. Neither are teenagers, either…
