Getting naked for the needy

Celebrities have a history of stripping down to their knickers for charity

If you haven’t seen it yet, the Warwick University Rowing Club’s naked calendar is something you won’t want to miss. Both the men’s and women’s team posed nude to help raise money for charity… and the web is going absolutely bonkers over it.

When are tryouts? I’d do whatever is needed to join this rowing team.

Once the pictures went viral on the internet, both teams sold out of every calendar and they are now on backorder. While this is the first year the women’s team made a naked calendar, the men’s team has been making them for years. Don’t worry ladies, we have a picture for you too…

What nice ties they have…

This is a more recent example of people posing naked to support a charity, but it actually has been going on for quite some time. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has had several advertising campaigns that feature celebrities posing naked. Hundreds of celebrities have bared all to support PETA’s anti-fur campaign, asking people to avoid buying products made of real animal fur. I think we can all be happy that Stephanie Pratt volunteered her services for the cause…

As much as I love bunnies, I’d appreciate it if this one hop-hop-hopped out of this picture.

PETA continues to set the standard for this type of charity involvement and if you’d like to see some of their previous work, click this link to see other celebrities who have done the same.

Fishlove, a new campaign to support sustainable fishing, took a page out of PETA’s book and made similar advertisements with one main difference… celebrities actually pose naked with dead fish. 

Anybody craving calamari?

Basically, Fear Factor meets Playboy, meets sushi in these new Fishlove advertisements. Clearly, if celebrities are willing to do something this crazy, the getting naked for charities phenomenon is here to stay.

Would you be willing to show your skin for charity? How far would you go?

  1. What a great idea! Love the photos and yep..I’d do it for a charity! Of course, the older I get the less likely it is anyone would want to see it. I’d have to decide if I was going to help or hurt my cause. Lol…

  2. Heck, I’ve taken off my clothes many times just to help wannbe photographer friends build a portfolio. Too bad I didn’t know that it was worth anything back when I had a body worth looking at. Nowadays, I’d probably raise more money by offering to keep my clothes on – which is a thought. “We’ll send you a calendar of modestly clad middle aged women if you give us money. — If you don’t, we’ll send you a calendar of them naked!”

    Cute post.

  3. We really are a very strange! When you think about it…if we didn’t have our tabus about nudity still fixed into place, who’d pay? You’re post is very funny and really loverly! Thanks. 😉

  4. Those are some incredibly nice ties 🙂
    We had a calendar out a year ago with the people working at the different rescue shelters, all posing naked with animals from the shelters. Was wonderful but there were a few complaints when some got to pose with sheep and pigs (nice, large animals) and others only had a kitten to cover up with 🙂

  5. The idea of people posing nude for charity is to make money, right? I will, therefore, not be posing nude for charity. Only the blind would buy a calendar comprised of photos of a 49-year-old naked guy. Too bad the blind don’t have a lot of use for visual aids like desktop calendars, huh? Maybe I could record some songs while nude and sell them? There’s an idea!
