Shark Videos of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
|Kevin O'Leary having a "Great Time" accepting|
Daymond John's "Ice Bucket Challenge"
What is it about this very successful fundraising phenomenon that has thousands of people not only donating over a $100 million to help find a cure for ALS, but then willingly pour a bucket of ice water on their heads? The answer to that question will have other fundraisers trying to figure out how to duplicate this success for a very long time. When combining a fundraising campaign where participants create a video doing something fun, post it on their social network pages so their friends can laugh at them, and then add a multi-level or network marketing technique by challenging 3 of your friends to ensure the viral effect keeps spreading, is clearing a winning formula for all parties involved.
So how big has the Ice Bucket Challenge become? It's so big it even has those warm blooded Sharks willing to take the plunge and cool off a bit before Shark Tank Season 6 begins. It looks like Daymond John was the first Shark to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that required a total of 4 buckets to insure a good drenching of a brand new suit and tie. Daymond then challenged Kevin O'Leary along with a few other Friends to take the challenge which O'Leary gladly accepted.
Kevin O'Leary never one to back away from anything, took Daymond John's Ice Bucket Challenge, but had a great plan to reduce it's chilling effect. After Kevin gets a bucket of ice cold water poured on his head, He then jumps into a freezing lake to warm up a bit. I'm not sure how that worked out for him, but O'Leary does look like he's having a great time on a beautiful day.
Two of the three people Kevin nominated are non other than fellow Sharks Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran who will now take the Ice Bucket Challenge, make a donation, or both. With two Sharks already taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and two more Sharks recently being publicly called out, the odds ALL the Sharks getting involved look extremely good.
Lori Greiner was the next to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a few weeks ago with a little help from a few younger friends. My only question is, why didn't Lori save the towel for after the challenge instead of getting that drenched as well? LOL, oops! I also wish the video would have kept rolling just a little bit longer as the "real surprise" was yet to come.
Greiner also challenged Mark Cuban for his second nomination made directly from a fellow a Shark, but has not accepted the challenge, yet. As competitive as Mark is, no doubt he will be coming up with something very creative when he does.
Which Shark do you want to see take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge next? Check back soon as we'll be posting all their videos in the order they took the challenge.
Alright Sharks, time to get a little wet! Who's Next? :-)
