ICE WATER CHALLANGE

A few days ago I was called out on this “Ice water challenge” Honestly I thought it was another “ I dare you to do it” style challenges with little to no reward other than a macho pat on the back, followed by a call out made, to more pressured victims to prove there ego online….

Oh Was I wrong…..

This past Friday one of my good friends Mark Owens from my home country, nominated me such a challenge, this was being done by another charity back in Wales. Later that day I was nominated by Flex Magazine & Nicole Adamo, who challenged me to do such on a challenge for the ALS Charity. After both asked me it was time to face up I only had 24 hours!!!!

What is ALS????

I quickly contacted my team and we set out to find out this question on ALS, needless to say after a few short minutes I knew I was not only participating but also donating….. http://www.alsa.org/about-als/what-is-als.html

Anyone wanting to participate can easily do so without being called out why not have fun at work, throwing water on the boss? In school at some teachers or in my case shared around the world to all my fans can see me getting that cold treatment! Hatters LOVING IT!!

What first I thought was a silly fad, shined light on a serious disease that I knew very little about, whom ever came up with this idea- amazing job!!!

As silly as it may seem the ALS awareness has now spread global and people are now aware of this disease and the chariy is now achieving the funded needed to help families and patients find a cure or more stability when suffering….

NOW GET OUT AND DO THIS…… It’s not about the ICE Donate!!! This is the link for the rules and regulations and where to donate… http://www.alsa.org/news/archive/als-ice-bucket-challenge.html

Its all for a great charity, whilst having a little fun, being creative & silly but being SAFE!!!
