No I have't really heard of it either, why is it a good idea?

 

Well I will put a video up saving me explaining some of it...

 

 

 

 

 

it's for charity I don't know that much about it but I know some stuff

 

 

so if you are challenged to do the ice challenge (by someone who has already done it) you have to do it in 24 hours (the water has to be cold) after you have done you have to challenge 3 more people to do it.  

Hey guys Twilight did it before it was cool.

It's a good idea, it raises awareness and it's entertaining watching people dump ice cold water on their heads.

 

I seen a guy who's a DJ on two classic rock stations I listen to do this challenge, except he had water dumped on him from a tractor bucket :P.

 

Here's the video :P.

It's raising money for ALS (a nerve disorder I believe, in which you slowly lose function until you die). You get nominated to pour a bucket of ice water on yourself or donate to the foundation ( they say 'or' but everyone usually does both he challenge and donation) and then nominate 3 others to do it as well. It's raised a lot of money very quickly. Just asking for donations probably wouldn't have worked as well, but people love a good dare.

 

*according to the website ALSA.org, ALS is "Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed."

My only problem with this is that some of these videos don't even mention what is for. They just say it's the ice bucket challenge. First videos I saw, I assumed it was for a cancer organization. When people do that, it makes me feel like it's for their own benefit (to get attention) rather than for a cause.

I personally think it's a pretty good idea. Money gets raised while others get to enjoy watching people pour ice water on their head, seems relatively harmless and fun.

so long as people actually donate to the original cause of the challenge which is to support ALS research, and they donate money which is the point altogether :P i did it and donated 200 dollars...its a good cause because ALS is a really bad thing

I'd like to see videos where people who are nominated don't dump buckets of ice water onto their heads, and just show some sort of receipt of them donating money for the cause.

 

There are plenty of reasons why I have this mindset. It's more fun if I don't list them.

It's really only productive if the person dumps water over their head /and/ makes a small donation. Otherwise, people everywhere will just be dumping ice buckets without ever donating.

 

I'd do it myself.

 

What if someone just totally refuses to do the challenge?

I live in central Florida—the heat index was 117 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. That said, I'd gladly pour a bucket of icewater over my head.

You have no idea how much this made me laugh XD

 

Yeah I may do it quite soon myself...

I don't see the point the challenge myself. Why not just donate? You'd be saving water & ice just by doing that.

 

Well it's also a fun way of doing so...and also more likely raises more money for the charity...

Well, if that suits other people, then more power to them I suppose. We did the challenge here where I work like a month or so ago, and I declined, deciding to donate. I really didn't wanna get wet... >_<
