Eliezer and Rebecca Take On The Ice Bucket Challenge for GNU
Sep 1, 2014 1471
The Ice Bucket Challenge is a viral fundraiser for ALS (a form or Motor Neurone Disease). In the rules of the Ice Bucket Challenge, if you are nominated, you can either choose to have a bucket of ice water dumped on your head, or else you have to pay $100. Either way, you nominate three more people to participate. This is a worthy cause and this has been hugely successful for them.
So… with apologies to ALS charities…
I’m not really interested in having a bucket of ice water dumped on my head, but I am willing to make a different offer to everyone. If we receive more than $1000 in donations for Good News Unlimited, specifically marked “Ice Bucket” I will have a bucket of icy water dumped on my head live online, together with my daughter Rebecca, who has said she will join me.
Now that’s value for money! It’s a two-for-one offer. We’re willing to freeze for the gospel!
Judy Lyew, the Chairperson of GNU, says,
I have started off the “ice bucket fund for the Gospel”
I have donated and want to encourage all our facebook followers to join me in this quest. Eliezer has set the bar at $1000 for his ice bucket moment, however, I would like to see us reach $5,000 – that way he would have to undergo it 5 times (maybe!!) – Judy Lyew, Chairperson, GNU Board
