First some info
“I think it was just somebody started it and it went viral and got to us here,” Morrison said. “You call out your friends. You start by making a video and naming a charity of your choice, and you’re pledging to donate $10 to that charity. Then, you get a bucket of cold water poured over your head while the video is still running, and after you upload that you tag your Facebook friends to challenge them. When a friend accepts the challenge, they have 24 hours to make their video. If they do it, they get to donate $10 to a charity of their choice, but if they don’t, they have to pay your charity $100.”
Morrison explained that it’s all in good fun, and that no one actually shows up at anyone’s door for not accepting the challenge — or for not paying the $100. It’s all on the honor system and no one is judging anyone else
I chose to donate to pancan.org, for pancreatic cancer, in memory of my dad. My friend from work Brian, challenged me and even was going to let me get off without doing it but it was for a good cause, i wanted to do it. Even though i “got lucky” and only half the water got me it was still fun and its for a good cause! I challenged 5 of my friends…. Tom, Matt, Nick, Mike & Eric. We will see how many do it ;).
