The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you have been on the internet within the last week, you’ve likely seen videos of your friends, celebrities and people dumping a bucket of ice water over their heads – this is called Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge has been trending around social media for a while now and some people think it’s just a joke or just plain stupidity. But what you all need to know is that this Ice Bucket Challenge raises awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the lethal, progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.


The idea of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is to take the challenege and dump an ice water over your head OR donate $100 to ALS. Many people do both the donating and getting soaked and even posting their videos on Socia media like Facebook and Twitter.

Famous people who have done this challenge include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg , Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Actors, Actresses, Models – there’s too many to mention! It’s really wonderful to see this people doing this for charity. Check out some of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos below.
