Dan Santat, a children’s books author and illustrator, has completed the #IceBucketChallenge.
The video embedded above features Santat performing the activity in support of the ALS Association. Before dousing himself with the ice water, Santat requested two colleagues, Jarrett J. Krosoczka and Jennifer L. Holm, and Sesame Street star Elmo follow in his footsteps.
Krosoczka responded shortly after with his own Ice Bucket Challenge video. In the video embedded below, Krosoczka passed on the challenge to Matthew Holm, Raina Telgemeier, and Dave Roman (all contributors to the Comics Squad: Recess! anthology). Which writers would you nominate to try this? (via Dan Santat’s Facebook page)
