Has anyone done it? I've been nominated by three people so I can't really avoid it :(

You can. Just refuse.
There has been criticism. Daily Telegraph journalist Willard Foxton described the challenge as "a middle-class wet T-shirt contest for armchair clicktivists". Bloomberg writer Leonid Bershidsky called it a "narcissist's bonanza".
That said, perhaps I should do it ...

Afraid not. I'll be a failure if I don't, which is why I don't agree with it. I'll just donate happily, but I can't just do that.

Have been nominated by a fourth person now. Bloody hell.

It's bullying,

And we all know what bullies deserve.
