The Best Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

From Weird Al to Bill Gates... really dig the creativity in some of these...

I just hope that some cash from these high profilers is going to ALS and they are not using it just to promote themselves.

Record amounts of money is going to ALS because of this. As of Monday, $15.5 million had been donated to the charity since July 29, the date it started. Over the same period last year the figure was $1.8 million. There is NOTHING negative to read into the challenge. Nothing at all. My wife and I have been giving to Team Gleason ever since it was organized a few years back. I love me some Steve, Michel and Rivers Gleason.

ALS needs funding, not people going to the Emergency room.

One of the people I work with was diagnosed several years ago. A few of us are doing the challenge next Monday.
I know it seems a like a craze but I really hope this helps.

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

I really like that it raise money for a great cause and it raised awareness but it is getting to the point where it is becoming a fad or a cool thing to do on you tube rather than what it is really all about. Asked some young kids the other day what was the reason and purpose of this challenge. They thought it was a cool thing to do. They didn't realize they should donate money to a worthy cause
