It's a fact that sex workers are overwhelmingly neglected and disrespected, which has led to many organizations fighting to legalize the profession across the board. And while that's not yet a reality, that doesn't stop them from using their platform to make a difference. Take two sex workers, for instance, who are working to save Australia's forests one nude at a time. 

So if you believe there's nothing better than boobs and philanthropy like we do, check out the empowering efforts ahead. 

As Australia continues to burn, sex workers have decided to do their part.

"Mystery cheeky pics/nudes will be sent to anyone who sends a donation to these fundraisers for Australian bushfire relief. RT to help my people and animals," one sex worker said on Twitter, teasing photos to anyone who donates to RFS, the Red Cross, and Wires. 

She was inspired by a fellow sex worker, who, on January 3, began the bidding for her nudes at $10. 

"I’m sending nudes to every person who donates at least $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia," she said starting the trend. "Every $10 you donate = one nude picture from me to your DM. You must send me confirmation that you donated. Please RT #AustraliaOnFire #AustraliaFires."

And you'll never guess how much she's raised. 

In just a matter of days, her nudes garnered over $300K in donations going straight to relief organizations. "We raised approx $300k!!!!" she exclaimed to Twitter about the incredible feat. 

But of course there was the risk of scammers. 

"The fact that two people used the same photo to fake a donation is so disgusting. If you’re that broke that you can’t donate $10 to a good cause to literally save a burning country but instead scam me out of a free nude, you’re the lowest of the low," she said, revealing that people were attempting to trick her into a nude without sending a donation.
