The LGF Chilly Nipple Ice Bucket Challenge!

Publish Date: 27/08/2014

Have you been too chicken to take part in this Summer’s fundraising challenge that’s sweeping the nation? Still not woken up from the madness of the Pride weekend? Well then, we have the solution…..

Why not #icebucketchallenge your friends, family and work colleagues to take part and raise money for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* (LGB&T) people in crisis today. We won’t be satisfied until every member of the LGB&T community can live safely and freely without fear of experiencing a Hate Crime - so help us fight back today and be part of the solution!

All you need is: A bucket, ice, water and someone to film your challenge to post onto social media. Having someone on hand with a big fluffy dry towel & a cuddle for your bravery might also help!

What to do: Fill your weapon of choice with iced water, pour it on your head or get someone to (happily) do it for you and get a ‘friend’ to video it and upload to social media (Twitter / Facebook). Then donate £3 to The LGF by texting COOL33 £3 to 70070 or if you get cold feet then pay the fine by sending COOL33 £10 to 70070

What to say: “I nominate XXX, XXX, & XXX to take part in The LGF Chilly Nipple #Icebucketchallenge you have 48 hours to complete your mission, text COOL33 £3 to 70070 or pay the fine COOL33 £10 to 70070” Don’t forget to include this wording in your video or within the text of your Facebook post so people know where to donate for your challenge.

Why not try it in fancy dress too? The best bucket challenge wins a fabulous mystery prize!
