Mariah Casillas, a 22-year-old OnlyFans content creator from Honolulu, Hawaii, devised an unconventional method to generate funds for Hawaii wildfire relief. However, her plan to offer nude photos to contributors who donate at least $10 resulted in the shutdown of her fundraiser.
In a recent tragic event, the iconic tourist spot of Hawaii experienced one of the most severe wildfires in the United States in more than a hundred years. This catastrophic inferno led to the tragic loss of at least 106 lives, the obliteration of towns, and the displacement of countless individuals from their residences.
The approach used by the model to raise funds for the island's recovery has gained considerable notice. On the platform formerly referred to as Twitter (now X), where she posted her daring announcement, her distinct fundraising method has already drawn an impressive 1.3 million views.
"F – – k it, sending nudes to everyone who donates at least $10 to my Maui wildfire fundraiser. I love this beautiful island too much," the fundraiser tweet read. "RT and DM me after donation, I'll be checking ;)."
Under the Twitter username @Lavaxgrll, the model launched a GoFundMe campaign titled "Aid Lahaina Today!" on August 14th. Since its start, the fundraising initiative has garnered over $7,400 in donations. This suggests that the bold philanthropist might have potentially shared over 740 explicit images with her supporters.
"EVERY $10 = 1 NUDE, LET'S GO," she reminded her 96,000 followers in a follow-up tweet promoting the fundraiser.
Casillas made it clear to The Post that her actions aren't just a "stunt." She's sincerely offering assistance to the Maui victims.
"I just want to get the word out — and for people to stop thinking it's a gimmick," she said. "I love this Island and would do anything for it. The money isn't going to me and it's not a promo for anything but raising money."
"Maui is a sacred, beautiful place and there are some horrible things going on right now," she wrote in an Instagram story. "They really need our help."
Casillas aims to leverage her influence to provide assistance and create a positive impact.
"I'm just being the influencer, so to say, to try to get everybody on the same page to help and do what they can in this time of need," she added.
All of the proceeds raised will go directly to those affected by this disaster, the model adds. "I have put together a team to help me disperse these funds to the families, households, and those that need immediate relief."
In the GoFundMe description, Casillas encourages individuals who have savored the splendor of Maui to step up and contribute.
"If you have had the privilege of visiting Hawaii, I hope you will consider donating to the place and people who made all of that possible for you."
A collective of enthusiasts with distinct passions on TerOnlyFans, a platform modeled after OnlyFans, extended an invitation to users to contribute funds in support of the Ukraine conflict. In exchange, they provided explicit photographs.
The funds collected were utilized to bolster Ukraine's endeavors in the ongoing conflict and to aid individuals who were compelled to abandon their residences as a result of the Russian invasion.
In a discussion with Insider, Nastsassia Nasko revealed that TerOnlyFans has successfully generated more than $700,000 within the first three months since its start.
