"Unselfie" have you heard of it?
Many dictionary-makers have named "selfie" the word of the year. Have you heard about the "unselfie?" The Coalition on Human Needs wants you to know "unselfie" is a way of acting on the premise that we're all in this together. Fighting back when millions are denied unemployment benefits or speaking out when young children are deprived of a quality pre-school education -- these are unselfies. It feels good, try it out. By donating to SCAP, you help us do more to stabilize families and strengthen our neighborhoods. You can donate online or mail a check payable to SCAP, Inc. Wouldn't it be something if "unselfie" were the word of theyear in 2014?
