In six days this UK born viral craze of #nomakeupselfies (women posting pictures of themselves with no make up) raised a staggering 8 million pounds for Cancer Research UK.

The idea behind this is that women post their #nomakeupselfies and men their #makeupselfies on social networking sites along with a caption saying that they donated to the charity by texting in which automatically donates £3 and then nominating their friends to do the same. The success of this trend will enable the charity to carry out 10 more clinical trials.

Viral sensations like this are great examples of not only the power of people on the internet but also the good spirit and kindhearted community that the online community can be.

Cancer Research, who did not initiate this campaign has said that the craze has led to a dramatic increase in the amount of donations that they receive.

Below are some examples of UK celebrities that got involved in this cause!
