Shivering naked in snow for Facebook craze
A Wiltshire woman has started a Facebook craze for people to brave the Arctic weather to pose naked in the snow.
Care worker Leanne Myers, 40, stripped to her undies to pose for a picture playing guitar in the snow with 25-year-old neighbour Danielle Smith.
In a bid to cheer up workmates, she posted the picture on a Facebook page she set up and called: 'Wiltshire, let's get naked in the snow!'.
She invited friends to strip off for their own photos in the snow - and hundreds people have already taken up the challenge in just a few days.
Ms Myers, from Durrington, told The Mirror: "It is totally amazing, I really had no idea it would take off like this.
"People have really embraced it, and a lot of the pictures are of friends of friends, but now there's some coming in from people I don't know.
"I've had interest from Abu Dhabi and America and people messaging me saying 'we're not in Wiltshire, can we send in a pic?'
"They are welcome from anywhere, as long as they are kept tasteful."
Nearly 8,000 people have 'liked' the Facebook page and Ms Myers is now hoping to use it as a fund-raiser for local charities.
"It would be great to use this for some good, especially as it's a bit of fun," she said.

I would love to make a comment on that but it would be deleted ;-)
he he you are soooo bad :)
Valerie I was going to oblige but as we havent had any snow, not half a snow flake im afraid ive not had the opportunity to get out in the snow naked, where as you said you had plenty of snow so you have no excuses .so come on get out in the garden and we will look forward to seeing your photos .
And if you decide to go out in the snow ,blue side i recommend that you find an old pair of gloves and cut one finger off them.you might find it will help to keep a part of you warm.
Come on valerie youve got no excuse.i havent seen these photos yet.
Sorry to disappoint Shaun only I do prefer to keep my extremities well warm and heated to the full :)
You can always put two wolly hats over your extremeties valerie.
there are none big enough for my puppies Shaun :D
Okay a couple of cushion covers.valerie
There was a young girl from Glencoe who went out in the nude in the snow her extremeties froze and I don't mean her nose and icicles hung down below
But they're in bras and panties in the snow.... Not naked!!!!!
....and that's just the fella :)
Gives a whole new meaning to the term "airing your dirty laundry in public"
Hey if you Gonna do it just Do It Put your money where your Nicks should be GONE.
