Model Sending Nudes In Exchange For Aussie Bushfire Donations Says She's Raised $1 Million
Kaylen Ward, the model who pledged to send a nude snap to anyone who donated at least $10 (£7.62) to organisations raising money for the Australian bushfire crisis, has said she's managed to raise an 'estimated $1 million' thanks to her ingenious project.
The LA-based model announced her grand plan on 4 January.
I'm sending nudes to every person who donates atleast $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia. Every $10 you donate = one nude picture from me to your DM. You must send me confirmation that you donated.

Sharing a list of charities and organisations, she tweeted: "I'm sending nudes to every person who donates at least $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia.
"Every $10 you donate = one nude picture from me to your DM. You must send me confirmation that you donated."
Despite the fact that some people tried to pass off fake screenshots as donations, it hasn't taken long for Ward's idea to take off, and by the next day she'd raised approximately $300,000 (£228,630).
And now, just two days after that, Ward has announced that together with her admirers, she'd raised a whopping $1 million (£762,070).
Would you believe me if I told you we raised an estimated $1million :sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

Ward was so overwhelmed with responses that she had to hire a small team to help out, estimating that they have now sent 10,000 nude photos.
With demand now too high, they've had to call it a day, but Ward told BuzzFeed she's 'extremely overwhelmed' and 'so happy' with how she's done, adding: "We had some people who donated a lot of money.
"One person $5,000 and at least 10 people $1,000. Those we made sure we had their name and a second verification of the payment."
While the definitive total difficult to verify, as Ward's estimate is based on how many donation receipts are legitimate, it doesn't sound like she's done too badly - especially as the model managed to get others to follow suit and help out including adult film actor Riley Reid and models Jenna Lee and Emmy Elliot.
She also teamed up with Only Fans to 'further these donations', promising to donate 20 percent of all her earnings to 'one Australia bushfire charity'.
