Wanted: Women to be 'BearFaced' for BBC Children in Need

Louise RedknappWomen in the UK are being urged to go 'BearFaced' on Friday 9 November to raise money for BBC Children in Need.

This involves ladies showing off their natural beauty by going without make-up for a day except for a Pudsey paw print worn on the cheek like a beauty spot.

The campaign is being backed by a host of famous faces including TV personality Louise Redknapp who said: “The work BBC Children in Need carry out is so vital and so I was really pleased to be involved in the BearFaced Day campaign”.

“Being able to encourage women to be empowered and confident is something I am so passionate about. Going BearFaced is a really simple way to raise money for a great cause.“

And she’s not alone. Model Heidi Klum is keen for women across the UK to get involved. “I am so proud to be taking part in this year’s BBC Children in Need BearFaced campaign,” she said. “Having worked in the fashion industry for a number of years, I am a firm believer of encouraging women’s empowerment, and what a better way to do so than supporting such a fantastic charity."
