ALS Ice Bucket Challenge #IceBucketChallenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has reportedly received more than $70 Million in donations in less than a month compared to the $2 Million received by the ALS Association last year.

Here are some information about ALS:

1. ALS stands for 'Amyotrphic Lateral Sclerosis'.
2. It is a disease that affects nerve cells both in the spinal cord and brain.
3. It lead to paralysis.
3. ALS degenerates motor neurons.
4. When you have ALS, your brain loses its ability to control and initiate muscle movement.
5. The disease can occur to anyone without any clear reason or cause. 
6. There is no cure for ALS.

The money collected from donations will be used for further research to fight and cure the disease. 

Some have been criticizing this challenge while others including President Barack Obama, refused to do the challenge, instead, just donated right away to the ALS Association.

Donation and raising awareness for ALS are the main points of the Ice Bucket Challenge. When someone nominates you, you have 24 hours to take the challenge or you'll have to donate $100 to ALS Association

Participants won't really care if  people will question how they did the challenge! Just as long as they did their part in raising awareness, Critics won't matter.

Some of those who participated also donated more than $100.
