The best of the Ice Bucket Challenge
If you’ve been roaming the web the past couple of weeks chances are you’ve seen the rich and famous dump buckets of ice over their heads. So what’s up with that?
The Ice Bucket Challenge is an initiative to raise awareness and fight ALS. It involves unloading a bucket of ice and water over your head and challenging other people to take on the dare within 24 hours or else pay a contribution towards ALS. The noble thing of course would be to do both.
From Apple, Amazon and Facebook CEOs to Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon the Ice Bucket challenge has gone viral, raising awareness for a serious issue and having some fun in the process. If you want to donate a sum and be part of this inspiring venture visit the ALS website.
What is ALS?
ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, but is most commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s a terminal disease that makes patients lose muscle control and eventually their ability to eat, speak, and breathe.
