An Instagram model named Kaylen Ward is doing her part, by baring it all, to help raise money to combat the devastating fires currently raging in Australia. Ward, known as "The Naked Philanthropist" on both Twitter and Instagram offered to send a nude photo of herself to any person who donated at least $10 to any organization helping battle the devastating fires. Kaylen, who now lives in Los Angeles, said she has received more than 20,000 messages. In the matter of a day she raised more than $100,000, with the latest totals tallying up to over $500,000. She said she was inspired to do her bit to help after seeing photos of harrowing scenes of burnt out homes and animal habitats destroyed.
