MANCHESTER,UNITED KINGDOM – 11/23/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — FIRST there was the ice bucket challenge and now people are being invited to ‘fill it! Dont spill it!’ in a new app based on the charity fundraiser which saw people get soaked for research into Motor Neurone Disease.
Bolton-based Henry & Co are combining their game in which people are invited to fill a bucket with water — but be warned it is harder than it sounds — and encourage others to do the same on social media to raise money for five charities.
They are Claire House, Children’s Hospice, BBC Children in Need. Tap into WaterAid, Refugee Action and Rainbows hospice for children and young people.
Ozair puda founder of the app, said: “We are a new start up company and this is our first app.
The app is available free to download on the apple app store and the google play store.
“The app is new and will appeal to people as it challenging . It tests the brain and touch reaction. The app is the ice bucket challenge and flappy bird all mixed into one app. It is challenging like the ice bucket challenge and is addictive like flappy bird.
“For example you can play and get a high score and then challenge your partner, friends and siblings to beat your score or donate to charity via the in game buttons.”
The app has a challenge button on the game over page which takes a snapshot picture of your level and score and allows the user to challenge people via twitter, instagram, facebook, whats app, email and other social sharing sites
There is also a donate button which allows the user to select a charity and then takes you direct to the charities page on the popular site just giving. Henry & Co does not handle any donations and Just Giving pays the charity direct.
2013 x-factor winner Sam Bailey has also recorded a video of her playing the game and challenging Katie Price to beat her score or donate to charity. the link for the video is below.
The 27-years-old added: “Ice bucket challenge is old and has now passed its time.
“This is the app bucket challenge for 2016/17.”
Mr Puda said the reason for choosing Claire House was because it is trying to expand its facility in Liverpool
He said: “The app will however set targets and change charities once the targets are met.
“So we will pick a cancer charity, animal charity, disabled children charity etc
“We will also be giving out monthly prizes and picking a winner with the highest score every month.
” All they have to do is follow @fillitdontspillit on instagram and send us the high score or @fidsi2016 on twitter.”
He said: “The game is a fun way of raising money for charity.
“We aim to get everybody involved and downloading and playing the game including celebrities and stars and most importantly donating to charity.
“Nick Pickard from Hollyoaks who plays Tony Hutchinson, Santi Cazorla arsenal player, Andrew Whyment who plays kirk sutherland on coronation street and Sam Bailey 2013 x factor winner has already retweeted us on social media site twitter.
“The app has got some good reviews which I am really excited about. People have been downloading it and playing it and raising money for charity.”
