A group of Ukrainian women has been selling nudes to raise funds for their country’s troops. The project named “TerOnlyFans” has raised more than $700,000 over the past three months, reports said.
After the war began in Ukraine in February, a 23-year-old woman identified as Nastassia Nasko turned to Twitter, asking if someone with a car could help evacuate her friend out of the Kharkiv. When she did not get any response to the tweet, Nasko half-jokingly said she would send a nude picture of herself if someone could help.
Minutes after posting the tweet, Nasko’s inbox got flooded with messages offering her help. She then sent her nude picture to one of them and Nasko’s friend was eventually evacuated, Lad Bible reported.
This incident prompted Nasko to come up with a project that would help to raise funds for Ukrainian soldiers defending their country against Russian invaders. Nasko launched “TerOnlyFans,” on International Women’s Day (March 8) along with her friend, Anastasiya Kuchmenko.
Although there is no connection with OnlyFans, a subscription-based social media platform that allows users to sell and/or purchase adult content from the creators, Nasko’s project is modeled on the same.
Unlike OnlyFans, which sends the subscription money back to its creators, TerOnlyFans, where Ter stands for territorial defense, sends the funds directly to the Ukrainian army. Some of the money also get used for animal shelter organizations and refugees.
Nasko, a Belarus native who lived in Kyiv, said she is proud of her venture which has helped in raising over $700,000 for Ukraine.
“I feel happy because I can support people in Ukraine and show that not all Belarusians like Russians and that we are good people. We want to help our neighbors,” Nasko told the Business Insider.
After the war began, Nasko moved to Poland, where she works as a marketing manager at an esports company, along with her contributions to TerOnlyFans. Meanwhile, Kuchmenko who stayed back in Kyiv is in charge of promoting the project through Telegram and checking the legitimacy of donations.
The creators of TerOnlyFans are mostly volunteers based in Ukraine who have signed up to help the country despite having no prior experience, Nasko said.
Although the volume of work at times can be quite tiring, Nasko has no plans to wind up the project. “We will end this project when Putin dies and Russia stops their aggression,” she said.
