Ice Nominate ex 2

The Ice Bucket
Challenge

 

Get involved in the perfect summer fundraising challenge that’s sweeping across social media. #IceBucketChallenge a friend and raise money to help people affected by cancer.

How does it work?

It’s simple. Just challenge someone via Facebook or Twitter to have a bucket of ice-cold water poured over their head in exchange for a text donation to Macmillan. Film it, share it, and then sit back and watch the nomination process take over. Take a peek at these videos to get an idea.

Sounds brilliant. What do I need?

  • A bucket
  • Ice
  • A smartphone
  • A towel
  • A change of clothes (highly recommended)
  • Immense bravery

Right. Got all that. What do I do now?

  1. 1. Fill the bucket with iced water
  2. 2. Pour it on your head
  3. 3. Film this on your smartphone
  4. 4. Post the video to Facebook / Twitter
  5. 5. Text to Donate £3 to Macmillan by sending ICE to 70550
  6. 6. Nominate up to three friends to do it next

Make sure you include this all important line when posting on social media:

I nominate XXX to take part in the #IceBucketChallenge in the next 48 hours and text ICE to 70550 to give £3 to Macmillan. (*Wimp out and text FINE to 70550 to give £10 instead).

it just gets better…..

Just a short  blog today , it turns out through all the various Channels of sponsorship and donations, the boys and girls that Skated / Scooted and otherwise for Littlehampton Shopmobility  raised well over the original target they were aiming for . so  if you saw the earlier blog and sponsored us , Thank you

If you want to help a local Charity, you can still donate at  this link
Also, as a follow-up , it seems the good people  at Sparks Yard
in Arundel are also running  a weekly give away in the run up to the opening of ” the loft ”

The Sun is shinning in Sussex, the people are out in littlehampton, The forecast isn’t too bad for tomorrow …..all in all, not a bad part of the world to be in today

Such an Inspiration ……………………

Just a bit of catching up on the Blog to do this morning, so  a few things that have been  on my mind this week, Shall i clog up people’s emails with individual Blogs, or just drop it all into one Blog ?

So here it comes, a mixed up Blog  :

Firstly and most important to me , its  only a month  until me and my Boys go out for our annual  trip to good wood for a bit of a skate .  this year  we have been offered  help by  quite a few  people , all skating, Scooting  & wheeling in support of  littlehamptonshopmobility.co.uk.  we will be trying to live Blog  on the day , but I’m not promising , as it’s all about the Skating for me for one day  only.   And also that for the first time in a long time, there are 3 generations of ” oldmanleslie” including the proper one out for the day, doing good things, and having  fun

Like every thing else, there is of course a button  to if you want to support us  financially. Just click-through here 

Second thing for the week.

We  all think that our dad is the best  in the world, they are always special to us for many reasons. Just because  “it’s all about the Sharing ” i am going to share with you  a little secret, My Dad IS the greatest in the world, I have absolutely  no doubt about that, But I’m pretty sure that i can tell you  who the Number 02 best  dad is as well,  This dad is a TRUE  inspiration , and if you dig around a little on the web  you will see why

Then , during the week i had a bit of a downer ,Nothing too serious , i just heard on local TV news about  thegooddeeddiary. this is a positive thing  that a guy in the UK  is doing and it is to be praised, the downer was the thought that followed, ” isn’t it a shame that this isn’t the ” norm ” any more ”  and wouldn’t it be good to get back to it . Possibly Luke Can Keep it going and inspire others around him. Good deeds don’t have to cost money, we can all do them , just even 1 a day

But i ended the week on a positive, and it wasn’t  a sneaky latte, or  a free day out, it wasn’t  even something that i had been sent from a  PR /company to review. it was because i went  last weekend  in the pouring rain to see  the boys and girls at malpass meats. I will send them a link  to  the blog, however i just thought it was worth  a mention that  the steak we got was  Mouth watering” cooked of course by Mrs Oldmanleslie” and  over the last 20 years of  buying from them  i have always had great  meat,  cracking service . you might in fact call it ” legendary ”

 

 

so its time to let the world know ( or at least the little bit of it that see’s my blog )

today , i am back again volunteering at  ” the shop ” and NOW  its just about 2 weeks to go untill our BIG fund raiser

“the shop ” being  Littlehampton Shop Mobility , I get here when i can to help out as  i think its good to try to do what you can , when you can, It’s not all about the Money, or the freebies. But as always ” its all about the sharing ” 

Today  we have what looks like the first hint of a summer’s day  and i hope that we are busy , cos if we are that means that people  that have Mobility issues are  using us to get themselves out and about to enjoy the sun.

Also here preparing for  the South Coast roll, where this year a team of ” mad fools ”  will be trying to propel themselves on skates, skateboards, in wheel chairs  and anything else they can find that isn’t motorized or pedaled , around good wood motor circuit  in Chichester ( West Sussex UK)

So why do i want to tell you this, well here comes the punchline……

 

We are doing it all in aid of the shop to raise funds to buy vital resources to help the local community. So I hope you will tell all your friends about  us, and maybe find it possible to support us

There will be pictures from this years event posted of course,but here are  some of our star skaters & Imageboarders from last years  attempt  when we raised in excess of £500  Image

There is a Facebook page for our efforts  and we will update as we get closer to the event

Thanks for having a look and i hope you can see why we wanted to share this with you , I’m proud of my sons that are both doing their bit, just because they can, I’m grateful to  those with ” mobility issues ) family and friends. and its amazing to see that people will still come out and give up their time to support  a great cause

What a Brilliant Gesture, well done to the shopper, Hope Tesco at least match it ….

I have to credit a friend of mine on face book for this one , so i will send her the link  don’t want to name her as she  wouldn’t appreciate it,

I just wondered if all the bloggers out there could get this out far and wide, some one can get it to Tesco and possibly  each store could  make a similar donation to  the same charity…..Just think of the positive PR in that for Tesco
