The idea is not only to throw a bucket of ice over your head…. post on social media and get some likes and comments.
The Ice Bucket Challenge
is currently an internet sensation, that is of course awesome and funny (however, some have criticized it for instead promoting the idea of wasting water). Still, you take on the challenge by doing it THEN nominating three others to the challenge.
The cause? Donating money to organizations in need.
According to the New York Times:People have shared more than 1.2 million videos on Facebook between June 1 and Aug. 13 and mentioned the phenomenon more than 2.2 million times on Twitter since July 29, according to those sites. Donations to the ALS Association have spiked. As of Sunday, the association said it had received $13.3 million in donations since July 29, compared with $1.7 million during the same period last year.
So, my fave so far?
