WHAT DO I DO?

What do I do? Just Read Below its so Simple

What Do I Need to Do? – Four Main Steps

  1. Register to join the day on the 6th June and be in the World Record and if you like join us in a wonderful song we will record of hopefully 1,000 voices
  2. Challenge Five (or more) non dippers on Facebook asking them to join you on the day for such a worthy cause and if they dont fancy ask them to throw a tenner in your idonate account (this is setup automatically during registration).  Remember this year anyone in the WORLD can attend and also people do not have to be naked!
  3. Take a photograph of yourself on the morning of 6th June, in your togs and in water (in your paddling pool, in the garden, on the deck, in your bath) and (VERY IMPORTANT) between 2pm and 3pm (Irish Time)  upload it HERE you dont need to say anything we just need your photo.   The photos are counted and if we get a certain amount of photos we will hopefully set the World Record
  4. Each Registration is One Photo (please do not send group photos as this is detrimental to what we are trying to achieve) – photo needs to be uploaded to be in the record so remember – (VERY IMPORTANT) between 2pm and 3pm upload it HERE
