Lipstick-Smearing Selfies For Cervical Cancer

Constance Jones- #SmearForSmear
 The concept is simple: Smear your lipstick, take a selfie, and post it on facebook, twitter and instagram. The goal is to raise awareness for cervical cancer.



Did you know that only one in three women between the ages of 25 to 29 do not get tested for cervical cancer. It's reason enough for the Joe's Cervical Cancer Trust to launch this social media campaign.  With the hashtag--> #smearforsmear they are hoping to encourage women to get tested. The effort seems to be working. My co-worker WPLG Local 10 News Anchor Jacey Birch smeared for a smear.


 
Celebrities like Georgia May Jagger and Rita Ora have hopped on board, posting selfies on their Instagrams on Monday.  Check out some #smearforsmear selfies below:
