I'm Going Bearfaced For Children In Need

I know charity is a personal thing but if you're in the UK, Children In Need is something that you just can't ignore. Since 1980, this yearly event had raised over £600 million for disadvantaged and disabled children and young people throughout the UK. This years event will be live on BBC 1 from 7pm and as per usual you can expect all kinds of comedy, music and mayhem, and stories that are bound to make you cry.

Like every year Children In Need has teamed up with several retailers including Greggs, Asda, and Boots to produce a wide range of fund raising merchandise from Pudsey ears, to wristbands, and for the third year running paw print transfers.

This year as part of their 11 year partnership with Boots, Children In Need are encouraging women to go #BearFaced and to sacrifice make up for one day, and instead wear a Pudsey paw print. 

In support of the campaign several famous women including Sophie Ellis Bextor, Rochelle Humes, Michelle Keegan, and You Tube's very own Tanya Burr have gone bear faced for a photo shoot with renowned photographer Rankin.

My selfie was taken by me, not Rankin, but I'm taking part and I've uploaded my #bearfaced picture to the BBC website.

I know it's a little bit late but you might still be able to get your hands on a fab, glittery paw print transfer of your own from Boots They're just £1 and at least 75p goes to Children In Need, if you don't manage to get one you can still text BEAR to 70701 to donate £1. To find out more about Children In Need, the work that they do, and other ways to donate please check out the official BBC Children In Need website. Thanks for reading x
