The Ice and Bucket Challenge

Ice and Bucket Challenge_042

This is from Wikipedia:
The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. It went viral throughout social media during July-August 2014.

(ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the famous American baseball player of the 1920-1930’s, who died from the disease in June 1941.)

And now it has reached Second Life. If you are American and are reading this donations can be made to the ALS Association … http://www.alsa.org/
As of August 26th, 2014 donations to the ALS Association via the Ice Bucket Challenge had reached $US88.5 million. See http://www.alsa.org/news/media/press-releases/ice-bucket-challenge-082614.html

In the United Kingdom donations can be made to the Motor Neurone Disease Association … http://www.mndassociation.org/
