For the past few weeks, celebs and people all over have teamed up to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. What is ALS you ask???

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. (READ MORE)

To raise awareness, The ALS Association created the Ice Bucket Challenge that requires participants to pour a bucket of Ice (or ice water) over their head, donate money, and then challenge 3+ people to do the same. While I love the fact that people are coming together to bring awareness to a disease that deserves more attention, it also puts me in an awkward place of resentment since the U.S. is in a serious water crisis that will soon effect everyone.

 Again, I in no way want to take away from a good cause, but this is the reality. We have all raised the awareness of ALS by posting videos doing the Ice Bucket Challenge, sharing someone else’s video, and/or hash tagging it on social networks. And as a result, The ALS Foundation has already raised $22.9 Million thus far, which is AMAZING! But now I think we should all focus on donating rather than wasting clean water. Do what you want, just wanted to bring another perspective to the table.
