Fundraising Bordello Sets Example

A German bordello owner has been so moved by the plight of survivors from the Asian tsunami disaster that she is donating part of her revenues."It's not every day you can make a charitable gesture by going to a brothel," said Mercedes Mueller, who is donating €5 ($6.50) of each €39 entrance fee charged to clients."It's so terrible what happened there and I wanted to do something," said Mueller, who owns the Happy FKK Club in Dortmund. Mueller said the business had raised €1,300 so far."We have as much of a right to raise money as any other business," she said. "We all have a heart too. I hope it will serve as an example to others."
