The real ice bucket challenge

There’s a lot of videos going around of people doing the ’ice bucket challenge’ in which people have a bucket of ice poured over their head, make a donation to charity and nominate three others to do the same.

To those pouring perfectly drinkable water over themselves, can I suggest they instead take the money they would spend on ice cubes and donate it to Water Aid instead.
