Posing Naked (Sorta) For Autism

Marsha Cunningham, Debby Sims, Barbara Weber, and Lavonne Northcutt, members of the Knotty Knitters, pose for The News Tribune behind a white fence draped with hand knit scarves in Tacoma. Marsha Cunningham’s grandchildren Josef and Mollee Cunningham, 7-year-old twins with autism, are the inspiration for the upcoming 2011 Knitting Naked for Autism Calendar, featuring eight Pierce County knitters and one from New York State, tastefully draped in knit goods. Most of the proceeds will go to getting the twins the treatments that have shown promise. Cunningham is also making the calendar available to other autism groups that want to use it as a fundraiser.

Question: Is there a cause that would prompt you to post naked — tastefully — for a calendar to raise money?
