i took the polar bear plunge for the first time on new years day in support of the tsunami relief fund.
it was the 20th year, monies always donated to the world vision .ca and red cross for orphanages but this year world relief changed the donation... over 400 ppl plunged in 1c water and raised over 51,000.00 the canadian government is matching all private donations.. so that is over 100,000 .00 for a 4 minute dip in icy water! well worth it.
i was in the first wave.. wearing cottan jammies/camisole and my eeyore slippers got so water logged it was like dragging 20 lbs weights across ice and stones... lol ended up taking them off to go deeper..
was a ball.... next year, tina turner sparkling sequins and ballroom slippers
