When most people ask for donations to a project or a cause, they have a very specific goal in mind. That, or they have a more legitimate excuse as to why they need your money and then “take a little off the top” like a normal person. However Jen Wilke of Texas has a different game plan. The 32-year-old model who has already appeared posed for Playboy and Maxim, is straight up asking for donations for her living expenses.
OK, then let me get my wallet.
In exchange for your donation to her Go Fund Me page Wilke is not building a charity of making a movie. In fact she is making a whole modeling career – for herself. Having already appeared in Maxim and Playboy, she wants to keep the ball rolling and needs a handout to help bridge her to her next big paycheck. To do this, she is going to have to attend some industry parties. I’ll let her explain:
“As a model, much of my life revolves around work. I am always conscious of my diet, and I spend long hours in the gym. Those, however, are just the basics. There is much, much more that goes into building a successful modeling career, just as there is much, much more that goes into building any successful brand. That is what I am really doing: I am building a brand. Recently, I have had some major success, even garnering a VIP invite to the Maxim Hot 100 party, which is coming up at the end of the month. I am at a crossroads right now.”
Now sure, you could give some of your hard earned money to victims of the Maryland flash flood to rebuild small businesses or to the family of a police officer shot in the line of duty. However Wilke makes a compelling argument as to why we should help her. Here it is:
Checks payable to hey now!
So far the mooching model has had some admirers donating to her cause. While she has a goal of $10,000 (going to model parties is pricey!) so far she has cashed in on $830. What do her horny male benefactors get in exchange for their contributions? Possibly a signed picture or poster… presumably of her. Meaning she actually touched it herself. NICE.
Why can’t she just sell used panties like a normal person?
For the price of a cup of Starbucks Frappuccino you can even get a selfie emailed to you along with “regular progress updates” such as this one:
Trust us, it will all be worth it in the end, for her. Which brings us to our Break Poll!
