Let me see that thooooong! An old photo of One Direction's Harry Styles ironing his underpants in a golden thong recently hit the interwebz, and there has never been a more appropriate time to play Sisqó's "Thong Song." Grab a pair of sunglasses, have a look at Harry's glimmering golden gonads, then check out four ways to save the world in your skivvies!

+ The Undie Run
The Undie Run takes full advantage of the one thing college kids want more than anything: to get naked. The rules are simple: show up, strip down, and run a mile (no running actually required). Since 2006, Undie Run has donated over 100,000 pounds of “abandoned” clothing to charity! This year, Undie Runners are uniting to award college scholarships to cancer survivors across the nation. Donate $25 to the cause to automatically be entered into a contest to meet Will Ferrell on the set of “Anchorman: The Legend Continues.”
+ Santa Speedo Run
The Boston SSRun, otherwise known as the Santa Speedo Run, is pretty much the most hilarious charity run ever. Every winter, 500 people storm the streets in red Speedos and Santa hats to raise money for the Play Ball! Foundation. The Foundation runs after-school sports programs for Boston’s inner city youth, fostering athleticism, friendships, and good character.
+ Polar Bear Plunge
A Polar Bear Plunge is a wintertime event in which participants run or swim through a frigid body of water all in the name of charity. You’ll never catch me at one of these, but maaajor props to MTV’s very own Vinny Guadagnino, who took the plunge in New York in January to raise funds for Camp Sunshine.
+ Pants To Poverty
Don’t get your panties in a bunch! Get your panties from Pants to Poverty! Buy your skivvies from PTP, and help support over 5,000 Indian farmers in need. PTP buys their cotton directly from Indian villages, and funds educational programs for farmers and their children.
