A group of residents at an assisted living facility in Ohio are going viral after they stripped down for a calendar to raise money for a local charity.

The residents, who are all in their 80s and 90s, had the idea after seeing another calendar made by a group of seniors in Florida, Matt Morris from Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living told BuzzFeed News.

Morris said the residents "were all totally on board, very excited," even the ones who didn't pose for the calendar. "They were just laughing and having a great time doing it," he said.

Morris said the participants told him it was a way for them to feel young again.

The pictures began to go viral this week. Morris said the media attention has been "pretty neat" for both the small, family-owned company and the residents.

The facility has sold 400 calendars so far, and just ordered 500 more. The proceeds are going to a local foundation that helps needy children buy shoes.
