Dare to Bare Because We Care

Telegraph | Namibian Women "Dare to Bare Because We Care" for Animal Welfare
Desperate to raise funds for the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), 12 mostly middle-aged Namibian pet lovers bared it all with furry models from an animal shelter -- though most of these animals were since lucky enough to be adopted.
What started as a joke, with an ambitious print run of 2,000 copies at 300 Namibian dollars each (40 US dollars, 28 euros), became a money-maker in the Christmas shopping fever.
And another [Dare to] Bare Because We Care. As of mid-2010 they still had some left and had dropped the price to 100 dollars Namibian. I'm sure they're all gone by now, so I'm hoping for a happy ending. See also Facebook and the Windhoek SPCA.
