I agree. I've seen that David Cameron has nominated John the 'Beatle'. Makes a mockery of the whole thing. Where the hell do you find ice in the middle of a desert.

Proof David Cameron does not have a backbone.

BBC News - Salmond and Sturgeon complete ice bucket challenge (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-28918393)

What's it got to do with backbone you mong-piece ?
it's about dignity.

It's possible to have concern, compassion and help those in need without making a public exhibition of yourself.
The idea that Salmond has backbone(or Cameron) is totally laughable, they are all scum sucking , lily livered, festering, filleted warts on the bell end of humanity.

please dont pretend that your wart has backbone just because someone dropped an ice cube down his neck

How does it work then? You chuck ice over your head and donate to charity for the pleasure? Or you donate when the person you nominate chucks ice over their head? Or you chuck ice over your head, post the video and hope your mates donate?

The idea is that you either do the challenge and donate a smaller sum, or you forfeit the challenge and donate more. However, I was nominated yesterday and I'm not even sure the person who nominated me for it has any clue WHAT it's for at all, so I highly doubt they donated...

It's good for awareness I suppose, but that does fall down somewhat when people forget what they're doing and it just turns into another schoolyard dare.

good questions. dunno.

but I have to confess one thing. It made me as questions about the disease. I learned that the are two types
one is fatal within a year, S.Hawking has the other type

So I suppose its a bit educational

Aye, it's a horrible disease.

I know of two people with MND - one at clientCo who has mobility issues, but otherwise not in too bad a state, and a friend of my mum's, who is now at the stage where he's struggling to breathe.

ClientCo did their Fleet to Brighton bike ride for MND - raised over 6K which is good going.

Guess you post your video with a link to the donation page and hopefully others will get the message.

I've already done it but for MacMillan Nurses. Apparently they've raised enough for 9 new nurses already :yay: :yay: :yay:

Indeed the MND charities are having a go at the cancer charities for "stealing" their idea. I heard that cancer charities have raised over £500,000 whereas MND charities have raised approx £50,000 and they ain't too pleased

I must admit I didn't know the MND charities were doing it as I had only heard about the MacMillan Nurses and I was nominated via Facebook for that. I only heard about ALS in the US doing it afterwards and thought of it as two different charities on two continents doing the same idea.

It may be that more people have been affected by cancer in their families than MND and can relate to the work the MacMillan Nurses do.

Also, I thought you were allowed to pick the charity of your choice?

Macmillan were doing it weeks before the yanks copied it for ALS.

According to the article linked to in the original post,

Of course to nominate anyone, you must have already taken part in the campaign yourself – and this Brand did with typical flamboyance.

so you don't have to be nominated, you just have to have done it before you can nominate anyone else.
