To follow up from last week’s post, I found this article in my Twitter feed this afternoon. Women have started using their #nomakeupselfie to raise money for cancer research, but the cancer organizations aren’t too fond of being associated with the challenge. Is being “brave” and posting a photo of yourself on your Facebook page with no makeup on the same as fighting cancer? No. The sentiment is right, but the actual execution seems a little off to me.
Thoughts? Is this a good way to raise money for a cause that touches almost everyone these days?
