Doing good can wear different cloaks. People can show support to a good cause through even the most controversial or tabooed initiative and still get results.
This is what Kaylen Ward @lilearthangelk, a 20-year-old American model and adult-entertainer is showing the world after announcing that she’ll be sending her nudes to anyone that shows proof that they have sent at least $10 USD to support any of the fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia.
Her campaign effort has been so successful that she has raised close to a million dollars within just two days of making the announcement on her Twitter account.
On Monday 6 January 2020, she tweeted that her effort has helped raise $700,000 (seven hundred thousand US dollars towards helping in Australia’s wildfire.
Remember that we also covered the story of a woman in Australia that saved a koala from the burning bushes after the animal sustained severe burns due to the Australia wildfires.
Australia has continued to battle a wildfire that has seen a huge portion of its forest and wildlife burn to ashes.
Kaylen Ward, 20, has revealed that since she already sells her nudes, why not sell it for a good cause and help save humanity. Her intentions are good, and so are the results she has gotten so far.
She has now rebranded herself as “THE NAKED PHILANTHROPIST” on Twitter. Her fans are also growing, with 10s of thousands supporting her initiative.
She told the online news site, Buzzfeed News, that she wasn’t expecting her tweet to raise more than $1,000 for the campaign, but was surprised to see it blow up.
As at the time of writing this report, the tweet she shared has already gotten over 162k likes and close to 70K retweets. We estimate she’ll get more than 200k likes before the end of Monday, the 6th of January 2020.
Her post was first shared on the 4th of January. Barely two days later, and she has been able to raise close to a million dollars in funds for the Australian wildfires.
But her campaign has not come without some drawbacks. As expected, some people have been bullying her for the approach she has chosen to raise the funds through.
In one of the tweets she shared in response to the hate and backlash she has received as a result of the campaign, she’s hinting at possible suicidal thoughts that results from online bullying. It is unclear if she’s feeling suicidal or not.
She addressed this in one of her tweets, saying “Just saying y’all bully and harass people on social media but y’all advocate for suicide prevention and shit. Ya’ll wonder why so many people kill themselves yet you make the internet unbearable for them.
“You guys have made the internet such a dark place for me. I am a 20 year old girl. I am just one person. Think about how the shit you do affects me. Now think about millions of people doing things to me all at once. Leave me ALONE.”
Many have poured out messages of support to her, with others encouraging her that she did an impressive thing.
To show support to her, some of her fans and followers have advised her to close Twitter and stop checking her DMs for a while.
And surprisingly, some have even tried to defraud her of free nudes by sending her DMs that they have already made the $10 donation, without actually showing proof or evidence of doing so.
As expected, she also put them on blast on her Twitter feed, calling them the “lowest of all low lifes”.
Giving away a car…
Kaylen also took her effort a step further by announcing that she’s giving away a car to support a family in need. She asked that anyone that truly needs a car would get her 2009 Ford Fusion.
