By now you have seen countless Facebook friends, strangers, and celebrities dumping buckets of ice water over their heads as part of the #ALSIceBucketChallenge, and now you’ve seen me doing it as well. I will admit I was one of those wondering what good dumping water over your head would REALLY do to help raise money and/or awareness for this disease, but I stand corrected. Over the last few weeks that the campaign has went viral over 22 million dollars has been donated to ALS. I’ll also admit that I knew nothing of what the disease was, how it affected people, or how long affected individuals are given to live. After being nominated by fellow blogger, Bella of Louisville, I did my research and gladly accepted the offer. Visit the ALS Website to make your donation and consider this post as my nomination to anyone seeing this post to film your own Ice Bucket Challenge. If you do so be sure to tag me on Facebook, and I’ll be sure to share it.
