Kaylen Ward “The Naked Philanthropist” Raised an Estimated $1 Million for Offering Nude Photos in Exchange for Donations to Australia Bushfire Relief

Kaylen Ward, 20, ignited the craze on Jan. 3 with a tweet saying she would send a nude photo to anyone who provided proof that they donated to one of a list of organizations working in Australia.

That tweet blew up; just a few days later, Ward estimated that more than $1 million in donations had been generated.

Since the money is going directly to charities, Ward herself isn’t getting a cut, although her social media following has grown exponentially since the campaign started. Her Instagram, however, was shut down in the process.

A Facebook spokesperson told BuzzFeed News her account “was disabled for violating our policies. Offering nude images is not allowed on Instagram.”
