One thing that’s changing the way we give to charity is internet crazes that seem to come out of nowhere. Things like No Make-up Selfies for cancer awareness, for example. People love to share stuff online that makes them look good, that makes them laugh or even just makes them mad, and people are finding ways to hijack that principle to raise big funds for charity. So for No Make-up Selfies, people to began to doubt that taking selfies with no make up was doing very much for cancer charities. So in their selfies, they started to put pictures of themselves holding their phones showing the fact that they had made a text donation. And that’s when it started to raise serious funds.
But it didn’t stop there, soon people began to lampoon the very idea that taking a picture of yourself and posing a picture on social media can do something to help charity, and that spawned a heap of new crazes. From things like sellotape selfies, selfies of people wearing tons of make up and sock on a cock, which surely raised a few eyebrows in charity circles. Nobody knows what the next trend will be or when it will happen, all that we do know is that it’s going to happen and it’s probably going to be soon. Even dogs are getting in on the action with some dog charities taking selfies of dogs or even photoshopping dogs into other peoples selfies to try and persuade people to rehome abandoned pets.
