A ‘Rubble Bucket Challenge’ has been launched in support of people in Gaza suffering from Israeli air strikes. In an imitation of the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, the campaign sees people pour buckets of sand and rocks over their head and nominate others to do the same.

“I have to do something and to send a message all over the world about Gaza,” said Ayman al Aloul, a journalist who started the so-called Rubble Bucket Challenge on Saturday.

 When the 42-year-old discussed the idea with friends, some suggested that he use either a bucket of blood or shrapnel. “It came to my mind that it's good idea to show the whole picture - how Gaza looks now, rubble, destruction, cement with sand, small rocks,” Aloul said.

By Monday morning, nearly 2,000 had liked the Rubble Bucket Challenge page. Other hashtags doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter included #dustbucketchallenge and #remainsbucketchallenge.
