Australia is caught in the clutches of the deadly bushfire crisis for a month. Land, vegetation, humans, and wildlife have been burning in blazes of the fire causing severe devastation in the continent. Heart-wrenching pictures of traumatized and dead animals are everywhere on social media.

According to BBC, the havoc-wreaking bushfire has affected around 480 million animals and scorched three million hectares of New South Wales alone. Many firefighters have also lost their lives while saving the life of animals and people stuck in the fire.
In order to control the destruction that the fire has wrought, many rescue operations are underway. Amidst such a crisis, a US-based model Kaylen Ward decided to do her bit in helping the people and wildlife affected in Australian bushfires, reports News 18.
Accordingly, she tweeted that she would share one nude picture of hers with every person who donates $10 for Australia bushfire rescue operations. Kaylen’s post garnered a massive response. She managed to collect $700k (nearly Rs. 5 crores) within just two days.
An estimated $700K has been raised for the Australian Bush Fires in response to my tweet….
is this real life?

But this way of collecting funds did not go down well with the Instagram community and her account was taken down. She took to Twitter to express her disappointment on the same and also shared that she has been disowned by her parents for her actions.
My IG got deactivated, my family disowned me, and the guy I like won’t talk to me all because of that tweet. But fuck it, save the koalas.

Meanwhile, an adult model Jenna Lee has joined Kaylen’s bandwagon. Making an announcement on Twitter, she wrote that she’ll be sending one nude picture to the person who donates $10 to Australian bushfire funds.
Joining @lilearthangelk! I’m sending this nude to every person who donates atleast $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in #Australia. You must DM me confirmation that you donated, nude sent via DM.
