Most things that go viral are funny, weird, and pointless, but the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge aims to change that.
You’ve probably seen your friends posting videos of themselves dumping buckets of ice water on their heads and here’s why.
It’s a campaign to raise awareness for ALS, also known Lou Gehrig’s Disease. When you’re nominated by a friend, you’re supposed to either endure an ice shower within 24 hours or donate money to the ALS Association, however, many candidates end up posting the video AND giving money to the cause.
