Today’s 3 Best Celebrity Tweets – 22 Pushup Challenge, Christ Pratt, Chris Evans. Prepare yourself for the next “Ice Bucket Challenge.” It’s called the “22 Pushup Challenge,” and it’s designed to focus attention on a tragedy. For years, it’s been estimated that 22 veterans committed suicide each day — 7,400 a year. The goal is to raise awareness, rather than money, though there’s an excellent list here of things you can do to support veterans in your community. Every day for 22 days, you make and post a video of yourself doing 22 pushups in honor of a veteran- ideally someone close to you. I’m doing the 22 Pushup Challenge in honor of my great-grandfather, David Tweedie. who fought honorably in World War Two.
Everyone from Chris Pratt and his cute (and looking unenthusiastic) wife Anna Faris to The Rock to Chris Evans are taking the challenge. My favorite video is Chris Evans’ attempt, where his dog is desperately trying to join in. Hah!
