#yesmakeupselfie for Cancer Research UK


I’ve been full of admiration for all of those women who have been baring all taking #nomakeupselfies to raise funds and awareness for cancer.

One particular shot I saw on Facebook asked the question as to how guys could get involved. I don’t know if anyone answered, but here’s my solution…

If women are brave enough not to wear make up, (not that you need it in the first place), then perhaps us guys can hang our testosterone up in the locker for a bit, get in touch with our feminine sides and put on make up for cancer research?

I’m calling the male version: #yesmakeupselfies

How’s about it, fellas?

Let’s see if we can match or beat the girls’ rather impressive two million quid they’ve raised so far.

Get yourselves all dolled up, take a selfie and, most importantly, text ‘Beat’ to 70099 to donate £3 to Cancer Research UK.

If you want to donate in Ireland to the Irish Cancer Society, text ‘Pink’ or ‘Daff’ to 50300.

If any readers can let me know what the numbers are in Aus or the US and the ‘text word’, let me know and I’ll add them.

Make up by Scarlett (8) and Lydia (5). To be honest, I’m amazed at their restraint.
