Ringo Starr Promotes a Very Good Selfie Cause

It’s been added as a word to the dictionary. It’s the subject of endless media debate. But in this case, the selfie angles are all good.

Per a report by LA Times pop music writer Randy Lewis, Ringo Starr was in front of Hollywood’s Capitol Records building Monday on his 74th birthday, urging fans to join him for a worthy cause. The ex-Beatle’s promotion of fashion designer John Varvatos‘ 2014 “Peace Rocks” fall collection includes a fun social-media component:

For each person who tweets a selfie while flashing the “V” peace symbol using the #peacerocks hashtag, Varvatos’ company will donate $1 to the Ringo Starr Peace & Love Fund, supporting the David Lynch Foundation…

“It’s amazing how this thing has grown from when I started seven years ago on the streets of New York, just asking people to say ‘Peace and love,’” Starr said, looking fit in tight black jeans, a black T-shirt, suit jacket and omnipresent sunglasses.

Transcendental meditation is typically a very expensive practice to learn. But thanks to Lynch’s foundation, many veterans, students and others have been introduced to TM’s benefits.
