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.
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…
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…
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.
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.
