In between supporting feminism and being devilishly handsome, actor Tom Hiddleston also raises awareness for causes like Unicef and Greenpeace. Perhaps in acknowledging the effect his face has on people, he's taken to posting selfies and then including information that will lead fans to get engaged with the causes he supports. Monday morning we were treated to a picture of Tom Hiddleston's face in honor of the Wake Up Call campaign to support children in Syria. Because of the state of his messy hair, I'm going to assume that in the spirit of the Wake Up Call, the picture Hiddleston posted is a #IWokeUpLikeThis selfie.
As with most of his pictures, he looks adorable and it already has over 4,000 retweets. That's the power of Hiddleston's face and it's nice to see him put it to good use. He's basically taking selfies to enact change and that's kind of a cool idea.
When the Ice Bucket Challenge first became popular many claimed that it would do nothing for the actual charity to have celebrities dousing themselves in ice water. But it actually raised about $115 million. So maybe at first glance to some it could seem vain for Hiddles to use selfies to spread the word about his charities, but even if only a fraction of the thousands of people who favorited and retweeted donate — that's still worth something.
He doesn't often post on Twitter, but these days when Hiddleston does, it's usually in support of a good cause. And if his face is going to help spread that message than I'm all for it, and I'm sure his fans are, too. Here are just a few of his selfies for change that he's posted over the last few months:
PROTECTING SYRIAN CHILDREN
Look at this man. Adorable and charitable. It's too much.
JOINING EMMA WATSON'S HEFORSHE CAMPAIGN
He was one of the first to do so.
SAVING THE POLAR ICE CAPS
FULFILLING A DYING CANCER PATIENT'S WISH
The CapForStrat campaign was a really sweet one where all the Avengers actors rallied to send their love to a UK journalist's dying father whose last wish was to see Captain America 2.
BONUS: UNICEF UK
Here's one of the first selfies he took and he used it to support Unicef UK prior to his trip to Africa.
It's hard to believe it's possible for me to like Tom Hiddleston more than I already do, but seeing him post selfies for a purpose just reaffirms why this man is beloved by so many.
