Ice Bucket Challenge

Stephen ShorttBlog

The #IceBucketChallenge has been sweeping around the globe over the last few weeks and possibly months.  The idea is simple, you pour a bucket of ice cold water over yourself – making sure that you or a friend film it as evidence – and you nominate three friends to do the same.  The catch is, if you pour the bucket over yourself you donate €2 to charity (typically for Motor Neurone Disease) and if you don’t do the challenge within 24hours you have to donate €100!

Simon and I were challenged by  a long term student – Enrico – to do the challenge so we did it on the steps of Alpha and started nominating other Alpha people.  This caused an icy tidal wave of challenges which we put together in a montage to share with everyone.

The original video on the steps of Alpha is here:

If you have done an #IceBucketChallenge, please let us know so we can share it on our Alpha College Facebook page!
