Do you want to take up the Australian #icebucketchallenge for MND NSW?

The #icebucketchallenge in Australia is a challenge to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Participants in the challenge have 48 hours to either donate to their local MND Association or dump a bucket of ice water over their heads (although most do both!). Then they challenge three others to Take the Challenge. People across Australia are taking up the Ice Bucket Challenge for MND.
