So… recently I was “tagged” or “nominated” or “challenged” to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by one of the supervisors at my agency.
Here I am meeting the challenge…
Does it suprise anyone that I was a Film major in college? One of the things that has bothered me about a lot of the videos I’ve seen is where they where bathing suits or clothing that was put on obviously in preparation. I did no such thing.
‘Cause I’m internet hardcore.
So if you haven’t heard or seen anything about the #IceBucketChallenge, then seriously what rock have you been hiding under? The amazing part to me is that I remember seeing my friend “Rotor” Ray do it on Facebook what seems like months ago. Now it’s gained some serious traction and virality. The people at the ALS Association must be very pleased… over $70 million dollars has been raised through the campaign.
Of course, the true success isn’t in the amount of money raised or the number of people who receive a cold drenching. The true success is in raising the awareness and education people about a deadly and debilitating disease.
