ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

So, apparently, normal people are doing the Ice Bucket Challenge now too.

While it may smack a bit of jumping on the bandwagon, it’s for a great cause, so I was more than happy to do my bit for  The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association – aka ALS  by making a donation and, of course, having ice-cold water chucked on me.

Having previous for such things, Dylan and Xander were only too happy to help. It’s nice of them to be so community spirited, I know. And finally, I apologise to anyone walking past our house minutes after this video was taken – naturally, I stripped off before running to the shower and forgot that the curtains in the front room were wide open. Oops!

Anyway, here’s the proof of my participation – please donate to ALS if you can!

    Well done for taking on the challenge. My wife’s just been nominated by one of her friends, which means that I’m almost certainly be about to get a nomination too. We’re moving house this week so it might be next week before we get round to it. Look forward to seeing what our 16 month old son makes of it all.

      Cheers Jonathan. Good luck with everything then – if your son is anything like my two, he’ll enjoy contributing in some way!

    Well done for doing it!
    Are you based in the uk? If so wondered if you donated to the uk version of ALS?

      Thanks Rob! Yes, I’m based in the UK, but I donated to the main site. It has a global remit though and, if you donate via PayPal as I did, it sorts out the exchange rate for you. Hope this helps!

    Good work Tom. I too did it the other day. I also gave away more than I planned as I did it in my boxer shorts and gave my iPhone to my wife to film, assuming she’d film from the waist up. She didn’t and the world got to see me wearing nothing but the one small garment. Lucky world!
