If a someone told you to pour a bucket of ice water over your head would you? What if they said it was for charity? Well you might think that it sounds crazy but what if I told you over 40 million dollars (U.S.D.) was raised for Lou Gehrig's disease via the als ice bucket challenge. You may be asking yourself what is this "ice bucket challenge" in which I would reply "what are you talking about, how have you not heard about the challenge in which a participant pours a bucket of ice water over their head and then donates money to the A.L.S. foundation to both raise money and awareness for the disease", then i would promptly slap you over the back of the head and tell you to keep up with current events, it's all over the internet for god's sake, you can't go five minutes without seeing a person make themselves cold and miserable,and because of this the ALS ice bucket challenge has gained massive popularity since everyone and their grandmother including most celebrities have done it. At the end of the day this may look like something crazy that is done without any sense but it has generated a huge sum and awareness for charity , although now some of the money may need to be donated to look for a cure for hypothermia.
