The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) has blown up on the internet and has a great job putting eyes on the terrible neurological disease. Unfortunately at some point people stopped even talking about the disease in their videos or encouraging people to donate money to help find a cure. It’s become shameless self promoting for celebrities and people who want to be celebrities.
Both Michelle and I have been challenged by friends so we wanted to do something for ALS but we didn’t want to just do another video. Dolfans NYC has always been about raising money for good causes so instead of getting soaked in cold water we will be donating $200 to ALS Association and we are asking you guys to take some time to read about ALS and maybe make your own donation.
In the spirit of the Ice Bucket Challenge I quickly made an “Ice Water Challenge” video and am calling out our friends at Phin Phanatic, The DC/NOVA Dolfans and the NorCal Dolfans. We are asking them to try and match our donation and maybe do their own video to help spread awareness. And yes, you guys can dump ice on your head if you really want!
