#ALSIceBucketChallenge – Challenge Accepted

You’ve probably seen lots and lots of videos of people dumping a bucket of ice water on themselves. It’s all to raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal chord. You can read more about it in the link below and also make a donation.

In the U.K., ALS is know has Motor Neurone Disease (MND), while you can donate through the ALS Association website, you can also donate through the MND Association site if you prefer.

As well as making a donation myself, I took up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and I have challenged my brother, fellow Brit CrackBerry writer, James Richardson, all of Team BlackBerry and the Mobile Nations Crew.

New video gallery added to the blog

Video Gallery

I thought I should get around to tweaking things a bit on the site. I really start to get posting on here a lot more.

Since I have been uploading videos a lot more I decided to add a video gallery to the blog, so all videos will appear there after they hit the main blog, for easy viewing.  Read More »
