Submission + - Charity campaign finds its help unwanted (

Macman408 writes: A young campaign called Strip2Clothe designed to donate clothing to needy US youth is coming under fire.

In a statement released to members Tuesday, the National Network For Youth (NN4Y) said it would decline to officially partner with Virgin Mobile's Strip2Clothe campaign, in which young people were asked to post videos of themselves stripping to music. In exchange, clothing companies would donate new clothes based on the number of times the videos were viewed.

Virgin donates an article of clothing for every video uploaded, and for every 5 videos watched. Nudity is not allowed, and the videos range from just dancing to taking off several layers, revealing a bathing suit. Opponents say that it's inappropriate, since many homeless youth are sexually exploited. Is a consenting adult stripping tastefully really that similar to sexual exploitation on the streets?
