She asked her followers to donate directly to a list of charities she suggested, which included NSW Rural Fire Service, Victorian Country Fire Service, Red Cross and certain koala hospitals across the nation.

Within one day, she had about 20,000 messages in her inbox with receipts.

“I was seeing all the posts on Twitter about the Australian fires and I was really concerned there wasn’t a lot of media coverage and not a lot of people donating,” she told BuzzFeed News.
That’s when she had an idea. Ward already sells n*de photos online, so why not do it for charity? On Jan. 3, she tweeted that anyone who sent proof that they’d donated at least $10 to a list of Australian charities would get n*de photos in their DMs.
The tweet took off, with more than 40,000 retweets, and Ward’s inbox was soon flooded.
“I was expecting to raise maybe $1,000 but the tweet blew up,” she said.
She’s now hired a team of four people to help her sort through the thousands and thousands of DMs she’s received. They’ve been working around the clock to verify donation confirmations as best they can and reply with the promised n*de.

Instagram has thrown a bit of a wrench into her plans. Although she was running the campaign on Twitter, word of it spread to Instagram, where Ward had 50,000 followers. On Saturday, Ward said Instagram shut down her account, claiming she’d violated their guidelines.
In a screenshot posted by Ward, Instagram said she had posted “sexually suggestive content,” though the model denies she broke any rules. She’s tried to reach out to Instagram but hasn’t heard back.
