Eden Sassoon Snapping Selfies for Clean Water
Kelly Ehlers, social media expert and founder of Ideas that Evoke marketing firm
Imagine if a “selfie” meant less about ME, more about WE…That’s the attitude Eden Sassoon is spreading to women around the world with her newly launched #water2women campaign, the first clean-water campaign spearheaded by beauty bloggers and the beauty industry.
The refreshing take on giving back is meant to spark our attention and encourage all of us to go clean-faced and makeup free with “cleanselfies.” Developed by The Thirst Project, Eden Sassoon and powered by klickly, the campaign emphasizes that “real beauty starts with clean water.”
Eden has become the first celebrity ambassador to get the word out there and here’s why:
“It’s time to unite the industry to end thirst because together, we make a difference. Water is a must in our daily lives at work, school and in products…we need it to create, so we must be grateful and give back,” stated Eden.
And on that note, who’s with me? I dare you all to take your #cleanselfie for #water2women, then turn to social media to share and most importantly donate just $5 to the cause…c’mon, that’s less than your fave lip gloss!
