Stripped of their rights by the Ontario government, ladies of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Canada and supportive Staffie ladies in the US and South Africa decided to “bare all” once again to increase awareness for their plight while also raising funds for legal defense. These ladies have posed beautifully with nothing but their beloved Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
I have to wonder what the dogs thought was going on...

Thanks, Vanessa. It's not every day I get e-mail from the other side of the planet.

With tongue in cheek humor, the models hold that modeling nude should be left to the professionals. So, in a classic tipping of a sacred cow, the models have decided to put out a calendar of their own, only no one will be taking off their clothes. Instead, the models, who will be bucking the current calendar charity trend of scantily-clad amateurs, strike a professional pose fully-clothed in Calendar Girls Get Dressed For Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
...According to photographer Stuart White, "I wanted to let the glamour girls make fun of themselves. Their normal image is all to do with partying and the high life, which is why all the portraits show them finding their housework difficult."
It doesn't quite fit the stated purpose of my list, but really, how can you resist? From The Cancer Blog. Buy the calendar at Lulu.

Austrian ski instructors in Arlberg region have agreed to bare it all after students ask them to release a naked calendar. A company spokesman said, "We often get men staring at the female instructors and many women seem to sign up just to flirt with their teachers, so we thought, why not give them what they want?"Apparently this has been a phenomenally successful item for them. I'm not seeing any mention of a charity, though, so this may be a tad outside my target area.
See also Ananova, Kink (1, 2), Natives.co.uk, and the official site at Skilehrerinnen.at (or here). And I believe this page from the Burg Hotel refers to the same calendar. Fair warning: They don't hide behind things.
