(Scroll down for video) After receiving notice that their children will no longer be picked up by the school bus, some mothers had no choice but to turn to stripping, according to video uploaded to the internet.
A new law was introduced during the summer months which cuts funding for the school bus that runs in the Monserrat district of Valencia in eastern Spain. A group of mothers met and posed for an erotic calendar to raise money for the transportation of their children.
The problem was that under the previous Spanish law, the government only had to provide transportation if students lived more than three miles away from school. However, according to the new law, the distance is now calculated in a straight line and this meant that Monserrat, was no longer eligible for a school bus.
However, as Silvia Lucas, one of the mothers, said: “We have to climb a mountain and down a ravine to get to school. On foot, using the most direct route it is 4.5 km, if you walk in the road it is 6 km.”
Some of the parents are unemployed and have problems paying for gas to drive their children to school. For this reason and to try to raise $50,000, the group of mothers gathered, undressed and posed for an erotic calendar.
It took just over a month after the launch of the calendar to raise enough money for the bus to run for a period of three months for the 83 affected children.
