Stop dumping water on your head. Just give money.
I know there are many bigger problems in the world, but I have just seen one ALS ice bucket challenge too many! As it says in this post: "[i]t’s hard to shake the feeling that, for most of the people posting ice bucket videos of themselves on Facebook, Vine, and Instagram, the charity part remains a postscript. Remember, the way the challenge is set up, the ice-drenching is the alternative to contributing actual money. Some of the people issuing the challenges have tweaked the rules by asking people to contribute $10 even if they do soak themselves. Even so, a lot of the participants are probably spending more money on bagged ice than on ALS research."
And if people are having fun with it then I am sooooo okay with that. Our world is just way too serious sometimes, We can use all the laughs we can get.
1. Do not fetch a bucket, fill it with ice, or dump it on your head.
2. Do not film yourself or post anything on social media.
3. Just donate the damn money, whether to the ALS Association or to some other charity of your choice. And if it’s an organization you really believe in, feel free to politely encourage your friends and family to do the same."
