WOULD YOU SWIM NAKED FOR CHARITY?

Well, this bonkers lot obviously would.

A THOUSAND naked swimmers bared all as they joined the fifth annual Sydney Skinny ocean swim and leapt in the sea with abandon.

The event saw 1,335 swimmers strip off at Cobbler’s Beach today for the “spectator free” session in the water.

It is held at a secluded beach in the Sydney Harbour National Park.

Despite the thrill of nudity being an appeal for some of the attendees there are strict rules about when they can whip off their clothes.

They do not strip off until they are on the sand and when they emerge from the water are handed sarongs to cover up with.

Beachley told Honey9, ahead of the event: “Every single body is welcome. I encourage everyone to jump in the water and feel, not only the freedom of being nude, but also the healing qualities of immersing yourself in nature.”

“Learn to love yourself, learn to love the body you have and learn to love the skin you’re in.”

All the money raised from ticket sales goes to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.

Last year a calendar featuring naked farm girls caused a sensation in rural communities across Germany.

And a grave digger, the local baker and the town crier might not be the types you’d expect to strip down to their birthday suits – but the “legends of Somerset” bared all for charity.

TRUMP MADE ELECTION PROMISES TO DONATE HIS PRESIDENTIAL SALARY TO THE TREASURY …BUT DECLINES TO CONFIRM IF HE HAS

President Donald Trump pledged to forgo a presidential salary, but as his second payday approaches, the White House is declining to say if the president has donated any of his earnings yet.

During the campaign, Trump promised he would take “no salary” if elected — a pledge he reiterated after he won.

“I’m not going to the take the salary,” he said on CBS’ 60 Minutes”

The Constitution, however, requires that the president receive a salary, and that it not be reduced during his term. Federal law mandates the president receive a $400,000 annual salary, paid out once a month.

Trump aides have previously said Trump would donate his salary to the Treasury Department or a charity.

MSNBC requested details and documentation about any salary donations from the White House, the Treasury Department and the Office of Personnel Management, which all declined to say whether Trump has donated any of his salary to date. (OPM referred questions to the White House.)

Last month, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the website Politifact that Trump “will be giving” his salary “back to Treasury or donating.” The site noted the White House “declined to answer several inquiries into whether Trump has gotten a paycheck already.”

Under the law, Trump would receive his first monthly paycheck for $33,333 in February, and another $33,333 on March 20.

Salary donations are not the only area where Trump’s pledges to donate revenue are lacking transparency.

During the transition, Trump also unveiled a plan to “donate all profits from foreign governments’ patronage of his hotels and similar businesses” to the Treasury Department. The plan was released by Trump’s private law firm, Morgan Lewis, but no system or accounting has been released for how or when such donations will be processed or disclosed.
