Re: Ice Bucket Challenge is getting out of control...

I'm doing one on the 5th. We have a block party on the street in front of the restaurant the first Friday of every month. I'm collecting donations from all my customers and will pick one at random to douse me in the middle of the street. In fact there has been talk of an ice filled dunking booth. Come on out and donate if yA wNt!! It might actually shock more optimism into my system.

Awe brother, don't be so hard on your self. You have plenty of optimism, you're just overly cautious about it.

The challenge has raised awareness (with those with above average IQ's) and has brought in more than $50,000,000 to the ALS Association.

So, yeah you're right, there are a lot of knuckleheads that are just doing it for the "look at me" factor but it's still been an overwhelming success.

A lot of people are just doing it because it's the popular thing to do. Some people do it without even knowing that it's for ALS.

I got challenged and I'm not doing the ice water. I'm donating $150 to ALSA and $200 to Team Gleason.
