ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I’ve been seeing my Facebook feed get filled up with countless videos of people getting doused by icy water in the name of charity.  It’s pretty hard not to be aware of this challenge that went viral over the summer and shows no sign of slowing down. This social movement has helped ALS raise awareness and milllions of dollars. So when I was nominated to take part in the challenge, I was happy to accept.

As much fun as I’ll have dumping a bucket of cold water on my head, I will also be donating money. In addition, to showing my support for ALS, I wanted to use this opportunity to also raise money for Breast Cancer research, another cause that’s near and dear to my heart.  Both diseases affect countless people worldwide.  So for every ‘like‘ or ‘share‘ that I get in the next 48 hours, I will be donating $1 to the ALS Association as well as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Here goes nothing.
