yes, that’s my dad pouring FREEZING water over my girlie-screaming ass. it all looks like fun and games (i did donate as well) but there is a reason for the ALS (In the UK it’s the MND Association) ice bucket challenge. i did some research and was told/seeing the same things. the idea is to simulate the shock and pain a sufferer feels daily. i’ll be blunt i have no idea if that’s true or not however i think it works pretty well.
seeing as i am in the UK you can donate here via this link https://www.justgiving.com/mndassoc/ i am unsure as to the USA ALS links so feel free to comment with them. i used a text code, i know the number is 70070 but for the life of me i cannot remember the code you send to it. again, if anyone can help.
There’s also an Ice Bucket Challenge for Macmillan too and you can donate with a code by sending ICE to 70550 that will donate £3 to The Macmillan Nurses which is also an amazing cause. You can also Wimp out and text FINE to 70550 to give £10 instead.
this is straight from the Macmillan website, which i think is really important for ANY ice bucket challenge:
As with all challenges, there can be risks so it’s important you look after yourself and make sure you don’t put yourself in any danger by undertaking this challenge.
If you are concerned about your health please seek medical advice and do not undertake the challenge.
For those taking part don’t forget to wrap up warm afterwards and take care.
on a personal note i do have to say for my fibro-friends be careful. i’m now stiff as hell and sorting out to chill in bed. though i am warm that instant moment of being freezing cold made me completely tense up and now…..ouw.
feel free to pass this around and have a giggle but please donate to either/both causes and remember it’s for charity its not just all fun and games.
