Women are being asked to go “BearFaced” this week to support a campaign by BBC Children in Need.
Friday will mark the first ever BearFaced Day, which encourages women across the UK to go without make up to help raise money for disadvantaged children and young people.
Celebrities including model and television personality Abbey Clancy, model Jodie Kidd, legendary pop star Lulu, BBC newsreader Sian Williams and TV presenter Julia Bradbury have gone BearFaced in support of the campaign in a photo shoot by photographer Rankin.
Other famous faces who have also been photographed without make up by Rankin for the campaign are international model and TV personality Heidi Klum, media personality Louise Redknapp, and TV Presenter Caroline Flack.
Those supporting the campaign can buy exclusive Pudsey Pawprint temporary tattoos from Post Offices or from the Post Office online store. A Pawprint costs 50p, and all proceeds from the sale of this product less VAT (42p) will be given to BBC Children in Need.
To raise money for Children in Need’s BearFaced Day campaign encourage friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you via BT My Donate, or pick BearFaced as the event across most other digital sponsorship sites.
