Kaylen Ward is a popular Instagram model who has raised over $700,000 to help the victims affected by the fires going on in Australia. This is quite a remarkable and admirable achievement.
What is not as admirable is that way that she was able to raise the funds. She offered to send a nude photo to anyone who donated to charity.
Her promise to send nudes was for anyone who provided proof that they donated more than $10 to one of several charitable organizations.
The charities included NSW Rural Fire Service, Victorian Country Fire Service, Red Cross and certain koala hospitals across the country.
According to Daily Mail,
An American Instagram model raised more than $500,000 for Australian bushfire victims by sending nude images of herself in exchange for donations to charities.
However, Kaylen Ward, 20, claims her generosity has seen her Instagram account deactivated.
The influencer, from Los Angeles, said she wanted to help after seeing the devastation the bushfires had caused and thought her x-rated images would be the best way to raise funds.
Within minutes of posting her offer on social media, her private messages on Instagram and Twitter were bombarded by hundreds of people sending in their receipts to prove they had donated.
One person donated $5,000 to the cause so Ward told him that she would send him 50 photos and videos of herself.
Shortly after she went viral, her Instagram account was deactivated, so she made a new account…it was deleted also. People don’t normally know that Twitter can just check IP addresses.
While it can certainly be appreciated that the woman is helping those individuals who are being affected by the fires, they shouldn’t have to stoop down to the level of selling their bodies out to do so.
People being how they are, they’re even posting the photos that they paid for online so others can find them for free.
