A 50-year-old mum says she has raised £100,000 for charity by selling saucy selfies to her adoring social media fans.
Fran Sawyer, a mum-of-two from Southampton, uses the money to help support desperate families with disabled children, and said she like a “sexy Robin Hood”.
Her son Alex, 15, was born with a brain tumour, and when he needed a wheelchair in 2015 Fran was shocked by how much it cost.
When other parents told her their struggles to afford mobility aids like chairs or motorised scooters, she decided to take action herself.
Fran told The Daily Star : “I spent a lot of time at hospital and I realised that there were so many kids that needed disability aids.
“So I created the cougar with a little bit of a twist. I’ve used my sexuality for the last three years – people have bought my pictures and even my hair when I shaved it off.
“I look at the different charity pleas on Go Fund Me and I just take the link for a person’s page and put it on my social media.
“Then I tell my fans to put any money they want into that person’s funding.”
Typically, Fran asks her followers to send a screenshot of their donation, which she then responds to with a sexy selfie to say thank you.
As the money goes directly to the funding page, Fran does not make a profit.
She said: “I love seeing people happy after I’ve helped them.
“There was a guy who needed a special wheelchair to play rugby and three months after he got it he tried to thank me.
“But I feel really embarrassed by it all,” she added.
“I just reply ‘I just use what Mother Nature gave me’.”
