    Me neither. We regularly talk about sheeple one here.

    What would you do if a charity collector approaches you at the supermarket and literally shakes the collection tin in your face? This is no different.

    If it's because you are happy to play a game of dare, then fair enough, but let's not pretend it's something special.

    Nothing special about it but I do think it's a bit of fun and a lot of charities benefit ,I'm not one for charity and often it begins at home but my lad who don't ask much of his grumpy dad nominated me and I do think the RNLI is worthy cause for me ,I did think of the cancer charities who I whole heatedly commend but hey drowning is life threatening too ! So chose the RNLI .
    kindest regards

    Nothing wrong with choosing the RNLI as your charity, or any other charity.
    I was nominated by at least 5 people but i don't give a rat's a$$. As the chaps above previously said, i don't get it. I'm donating to charity anyway, no need to get soaked just because someone says so...
    Well done for donating though!

    AS with all of these charity events, they don't necessarily make sense, but what they do achieve, is to attain lots of positive attention for worthwhile causes. Look at it this way, you donate 20 to RNLI or whoever really, and that is it, but if you do the exact same thing whilst pouring water on your head an then post it to facebook... boom, 350 hits and perhaps 20 others will imitate you. With celebrities getting involved this will rise into the millions. Instant free publicity, on the same scale as a primetime advert slot, for free. It's just the same as home clothes days when you were a kid, or movember or whatever, and if the cost of keeping the spread of publicity for such causes is a dunking and a fiver, well, that seems ok to me.

    Another +1 Alistair..

    My exwifes father died from MND.

    A proud strappin fella she watched him deteriorate until his untimely death..

    All this nonsence about the yanks ALS pocketing big sums has absolutely nothing to do with the British MND.

    All my family have done it, had a lot of fun on FB, got together for a BBQ and raised awareness and some money to a good cause.

    Theres always some miserable bugger to criticise, poor water 0n other peoples efforts. If you don't get it don't bother, but imo no need to criticise those that do.

    I nominate Sikamalc and CSL 24 Hours gents
    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...
