Catherine Clement: I have done it because as a female we are all vulnerable to breast cancer and the quicker we can cure this the better it is for every women. I have also done this on behalf of Sue Roe who recently passed away after battling breast cancer and other cancers- a good friend of my Nan's and who will be sorely missed.
Charlene Cook: I did it because this can hit anyone of us at any time! Cancer doesn't care who you are, how much money you have or who it will affect around you and that's the scariest thing we all may face. So if we can do anything to support anyone going through this lets do it.
Gemma Keating: My friend’s mum died on Tuesday, having only been diagnosed two weeks ago and her brother is battling prostate cancer in USA. My nan is 10 years a survivor of mouth cancer but her late husband didn't win his battle. We're all touched by it - a small donation is nothing really is it.
Jeni Little: I did a no make up selfie to join in with raising awareness. If everyone does a selfie and encourages three more to do so, a huge amount will be raised, and clearly has been. As one to not even put the bins out without make up on it was a huge thing to me, vain but all I know really. But doing it for this cause was worth it. My granddad lost his battle to cancer when I was younger and my other granddad has been fighting cancer for over a decade, and has been told he will never beat it now but they can try to prevent it getting worse. So it's a cause close to my heart. Having had several dear family friends that have fought cancer too, some who have lost and some who have beaten it! The powers of social networking are amazing, and how a 'trend' can make such a difference to a worthy cause.
Jo Milsom: At first I thought this was a bit of a waste of time but still posted my picture and donated. Then I started to realise how big this was becoming and if at least one person ended up checking themselves when they wouldn't have normally, then this was a good thing and the fact that so many have donated is brilliant!
Joanne Edwards: I did it because it's for a really good cause, and it made me appreciate the good health I have and how we take for granted simple things like how we look.
Leanne Bello: I really didn’t want to do this because I hate 'selfies' - I don’t like taking pictures of myself but was more than willing to donate! But someone very close to me and my family is battling cancer at the moment and her prognosis is not good so I thought if she can fight cancer I can take a picture of myself and post it.
Lisa Mackenzie: The reason I did the photo is because cancer has unfortunately affected not only my family but some very close friends, it has no boundaries so I believe whereever we can we should raise as much awareness and money as possible. In fact, I have arranged a charity bingo night on April 4 for the Hospice, and a masquerade ball in December for breast cancer.
Laura Searle Aldous: Cancer Research is without doubt a great charity and as cancer touches every family now anything is worth doing to help raise awareness. I have to say though I actually don't wear that much make up and go without it a lot and I'm not bothered to go out without it on either. But when it came to posting my picture on Facebook I did find it hard, but it was so worth it. I have loved seeing all the pictures of the beautiful ladies and even more so loved seeing the hype it has made. It has definitely turned out the best way to raise awareness.
Lucy Roper: It's such a simple thing that anyone can do and an easy way to donate to a worthwhile cause.
Sarah Howells: I posted my selife because it's such an important cause and inspiring to see so many women clubbing together to raise awareness.
Tabitha Saunder: I liked that this year’s breast cancer campaign was something new and openly obvious, rather than posting a status that got people guessing.
Tanya Johnson: I've witnessed cancer in my family and it's an awful thing to see someone you love go through it, so this is a perfect way to get awareness out there and donate money at the same time.
Amy Porter: I did it to show my support in raising awareness for breast cancer, I also gave my donation by texting.
Ann Baines: So many friends are affected by this awful illness, I want to help bring awareness. Beauty is only skin deep, it's inside that really matters, and I know many will agree, those who have fought this, fighting right now or who have been beaten by cancer, their beauty shines from inside. We all stand by you.
Claire Culshaw: I posted mine and donated as I have a close family member in Liverpool hospital having an operation to remove her cancerous lump on her lung, and because my best friend lost his mum to cancer
Hayley Dobson: I did it to make girls aware of breast cancer and to donate my £3. Celebs are doing it so we all should too!
Ione McKinnon: I got nominated twice to do a no make-up selfie and I'm a girl who loves to wear her makeup, so much so that even if I pop to the shop just up the road I put a full face of make-up on. I did my nomination as my grandma had breast cancer and fought it. I also did it for support for all the women who are fighting or struggling with not only cancer, but breast cancer. My grandma struggled and fought and had a single mastectomy and still smiled through it all.
Kelly Grant: I did it as a close friend of mine had breast cancer and it’s amazing to raise funds for a great cause as well as awareness for cancer as a whole. It personally also shows her how much I care as I hate not having make up on!
Aleksandra Pytlik: I did it because I want cancer to be beaten.
Amelia Baker: Cancer doesn't care who you are what you look like or what you do. The no makeup selfies show that we don’t care who we are, what we do or what we look like, we'll fight this disease together with every ounce of energy.
Andrea Powe: The reason I did the selfie with my daughter Phoebe was because I lost my gran to ovarian cancer and my grandad died from Leukaemia. We try to do the Race for Life every other year to show our support of the worthy work that cancer research does.
Becky Herbert: I've lost two very close family members to this horrible disease. We need to keep raising awareness and donating cash to kick cancer into touch.
Beverley Huckstep: It’s such a close cause to many people’s hearts. It’s the least I could do to show my support for a close friend who has had the hardest 18 months fighting breast cancer and winning! She is an amazing mummy, wife, daughter, sister and friend – I’m amazed and proud of her dignity, she’s amazeballs!!
Charlotte Butler: I'm personally not one for taking selfies – only occasionally with the kids when I am wearing a face full of make up! This was for an amazing cause it was defiantly worth the effort. I donated as well after posting my selfie to my friends and family. People can be very negative of social media but when something so simple has raised over £1million it can't be such a bad thing really?
Claire Mathers: Cancer has really touched me and my family’s life. I lost my best friend four years ago at the ago 33, my little niece Miley lives in Exeter and is going through chemo and has been for nine months – she is eight today! I use all my tips from the salon and they go towards cancer or Children's Hospice South West. Within my work I see day-to-day how cancer is breaking so many. I also have a very dear friend Sarah who has cancer – we are biking 210 miles this summer to raise money for the children’s hospice. If we all give we might just screw cancer up!
Claire Payne: I posted my picture to support such a great cause because every woman in this world is either a daughter, mum, sister, friend or loved one. Breast cancer needs to outlived and one day, a thing of the past.
Danielle White: It’s a great way for us ladies to show awareness and raise some much needed funds.
Deb Thomson: My pic is for all the people out there who have lost someone. And for those who are fighting.
Emily Harris: The reason I decided to do a selfie is firstly because my friend said I wouldn't dare to be seen with no makeup, but secondly it's for a brilliant cause. Friends and family have been affected by the disease and I feel that it's important to raise awareness.
Emma Collingham: I did it because it's a great way of raising money to research cancer. I have lost some very important people in my life over the years to cancer, but also have friends who are survivors and I would like to see more survivors.
Fern Koorlander: At first I was concerned that the selfies weren't raising any money, then as the days rolled on people were donating and now it's raised so much awareness and money it's incredible. I have donated and am running the 5k Race for Life this year in memory of the granny and aunty I never met. I never take selfies so this will probably be my first and my last!
Gemma Cook: I did my bare-faced selfie to raise awareness and money. Cancer has affected my family and anything that brings attention is a great idea
Gina Meadows: It’s totally crazy how this has taken off; at first I didn't think it would benefit the charity much at all – who wants to see my ugly mug?! But the cover it’s generating for cancer research is amazing – how something so simple can generate so many donations is amazing. Whoever came up with the idea deserves a big pat on the back!
Gwen Carr: Such a fantastic worth while cause, lost my beautiful mum to cancer, so every little must help.
Heather Berry: I have lost two hugely special people to cancer who both should still be here. Keep raising awareness to raise money to save more precious lives.
Heather Fordham: I currently have a friend going through cancer treatment and wanted to raise further awareness. Cancer research is such a good cause and if wearing no make up helps, then why not.
