Is it over yet? I don’t want to stop anyone from donating to ALS - but now every-day-folk are posting far out ice bucket stunts and some are getting hurt - oh yea didn’t someone die? There usually is no mention of any money being donated - I even saw where someone said they did the challenge so now they don’t need to donate - hummm
Why is this campaign so successful anyway? I assume it is because it makes folks feel better about themselves without having to commit to anything and they get instant gratification and recognition when they post their little video for the world to see. I’m sure we’ll find out once the college class is offered: The Ice Bucket Challenge and Why It Was so Successful 101.
As for me, I have decided to give in other ways. ALS has a lot of money coming in right now and I am cash poor at the moment - so I have volunteered to cuddle and pet kittens until they are adopted at my local shelter, make Kards4Soldiers and to help write grants for other volunteer organizations trying to fill their coffers.
I challenge you to volunteer to do something selfless within the next 24-hours or jump naked off the tallest building in your town into an ice bucket. Or not.
