There are people who are going to be donating money that's a lot more questionable than mine. The only thing I did was publicise it.
A high-class Chilean prostitute has kindly donated 27 hours of her services to a charity auction - and raised $4000 dollars in the process.
Maria Carolina decided to offer her services as part of an annual fund raising campaign, which is the Chilean answer to Comic Relief.
"There are people who are going to be donating money that's a lot more questionable than mine. The only thing I did was publicise it,' she said.
"I am going to contribute with my work to a purpose that touches me deeply," Ms Carolina said.
She has spread her message through several online sites and television programs.
The auction was part of a two day Telethon scheduled for November 30-December 1, which raises money to help disabled children.
Even though prostitution is legal in Chile, the organizer of the event has been dubious of her fundraising services, but accepted the money never the less.
'Everyone can do what they want, but if someone tells me that they'll do something immoral - I'm not going to encourage it,' said organizer Mario Kreutzberger.
Maria Carolina is actually a very beautiful girl with a lot of personality. She became a prostitute to support her children when she was abandoned by her husband and is using this to create a new career in the media.
