Celebs – and the Healthista team – are going bare faced on November 8th for Children In Need. Chances are we won’t look as good as these actresses and personalities (or be photographed by Rankin as they were) but it IS a good cause
This is in aid of Children In Need’s BearFaced campaign, which is encouraging women to go without slap on 8th November, swapping it instead for a Pudsey paw print. Money can be raised through sponsorship, and also by buying Boots’ No.7 products, which will be donating 5p out of £1 to the charity all this week. Boots and Children In Need have been in partnership for a decade now, and together have raised over £5 million.
Celebrities who joined the campaign this year include Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, news reporter Fiona Bruce, ex-Olympian Denise Lewis and Girl Aloud Kimberley Walsh. Actress Jodie Whittaker said ‘BBC Children In Need carry out so much crucial work, so when I was asked to lend my support to their BearFaced Day campaign how could I say no?!’. Going BearFaced is ‘easy’, said Vanessa Feltz, and can raise money for a cause that will really help make a difference.
If you want to join the band of women going BearFaced on Friday, pick up your paw prints from the Post Office and start your own sponsorship page now. You can join as an individual or as part of a team, but the important thing is to do your bit for Children In Need 2013. Share your ‘bear-faced’ look on Twitter with #BearFaced, tagging @BBCCiN on Twitter and Instagram.
