It’s already common knowledge that the whole world is literally obsessed with taking the infamous selfie photos. More and more people describe themselves as “narcissistic selfie addicts” who want to find a way to kick out the habit of sharing photos depicting duck-faces. Luckily two college students have found a way to fine you $1 for each and every selfie you share on the Internet.
The initiative is called “Selfie Police” and don’t worry it’s not the real police. It’s a charitable initiative founded by two college students from the Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah named Chas Barton and Dustin Locke. Participation in the initiative is completely voluntary and all the proceedings from the ingenious website are donated to a nonprofit organization called Vittana. The organization provides educational scholarships to underprivileged talented students in developing countries. You can check out their website at http://selfiepolice.org/.
Barton and Locke really wanted to engage the young generation and find a way to inspire more people turn their selfie-shness into charity.
