        hi all,

        I'm sure you have all noticed the latest craze for the ice bucket challenge on fb.  It is a great way to raise awareness and money for ALS (motor neuron disease).  People are asked to donate once they have completed the challenge.

        I happen to think this is a fantastic thing to do and although i haven't been nominated yet (am sure there is one on its way tomorrow for me  )

        What does everyone else think of this and have you done the challenge yet?

        The challenge is a great idea because it brings awareness regarding the disease but I hope most people will start donating without doing the actual ice bucket thing.

          I think it's a great idea and it certainly has raised awareness.

          It's a great way to raise awareness about the disease. Hopefully, people will continue to help after this craze is over.

          Some are doing the challenge to get out of donating and it initially started as a good way to raise awareness but now I think it's losing the meaning.

          What I dislike about this challenge is that is has became "trendy" thing to do now, and has no or very little to do with the initial good cause ...

          Everyone is my neighborhood did the Ice bucket challenge.  It was a cool event since everyone
          was out at once, even the little kids.....  The nominations for others went from the neighbors dog (that is just mean) to the oldest grandma and grandpa.

          My son (13) got so many 'likes' on his instagram video of it... another way to spread the word.

          Just wanted to write exactly the same thing. Everytime I see some ice bucket challenges it's all about "let's have some fun, look what I've just done, can you do it too?" instead of trying to help or even without thinking about idea of it.

            I came to post the very same video.  That's what it's all for and I hope that they research this terrible disease and find a cure.

            The thing I find hardest to deal with in this video is nothing that you see (although it is tough to watch that poor Mother of his) but the thought of what is the mental capacity of the poor Mother?  Is she still of sound mind and what sort of nightmare must that be if she is?

            From what I understood blueday is that this disease robs you of all your motor skills until eventually you cannot even breath on your own.

            The ice bucket challenge was chosen because when the icy water is dumped on your back, that is what ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) feels like.

            I was thinking the same thing until my son's (age 13) friends all started doing it and nominating others.  I asked them if they knew and understood what the challenge was all about.  Shockingly, they all did.  So, I guess it is bringing awareness, even to the youngsters.

            When the challenge is done, the person states their name, who nominated them, who they are nominating  (3 people who have to do it within 24hrs or donate $100), they also state what it is for and say something about the pain it inflicts on those afflicted and a hope for a cure, etc. 

            I would much rather this going around on middle school age kids instragrams instead of the usual nonsense.  Or... selfies. ala Kim Kardasian.
