Hey guys! Today I participated in the #IceBucketChallenge. I was nominated by my brother, though as my partner Chris had been nominated, I soon expected to be anyway. While I appreciate that the Ice Bucket Challenge originated from people raising money for ALS, I personally did mine for Macmillan Cancer Support and British Heart Foundation – two charities that are close to my own heart.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is a great viral campaign that I know loads of people have supported. I think its amazing just how much money has been raised for ALS/MND. However I just ask that you remember all the other worthy charities out there and support not just ALS with your Ice Bucket Challenge, but also any other charities that you feel you want to support and donate to.
To donate to either of the charities I chose:
Macmillan – Text “ICE” to 70550 for £3 donation
(or text “FINE” if you’re not doing the ice bucket challenge and are happy to pay £10 as a fine)
British Heart Foundation – Text “fight” to 70707 for a standard £3 donation
In the meantime, here is my video… its worth a laugh to hear me scream!!
