To those of you who think that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is stupid please read this (it comes from the ALS Association website):
Generosity Continues with Ice Bucket
Donations Reaching $41.8 Million
Washington, D.C. (August 21, 2014) — As of Thursday, August 21, The ALS Association has received $41.8 million in donations compared to $2.1 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 21). These donations have come from existing donors and 739,275 new donors to The Association.
DID YOU READ THAT!?!?!! 739,275 NEW donors. NEW donors. NEW. NEW. NEW. People who have NEVER donated to the ALS Association before have donated this year. Think about that. Sure…it seems ridiculous…people dumping ice water over their heads and challenging someone else do it in the name of ALS awareness…but well…IT’S WORKING. Holy shit…
But one thing is lacking…you are all challenging one another and posting your videos…but I never see a link to the ALS Association website to make donations. Why not?? Be sure to donate, my friends. Yes…dump the water on your heads and challenge one another and raise awareness for this horrible disease that has NO TREATMENT (that’s right…NO TREATMENT) AND NO CURE…but please…DONATE as well…and if you can’t donate…be sure to include the link to donate on your challenge as well. Thanks y’all!! And thanks for raising awareness!! Y’all are kick ass!!!!
Much love and God Bless, framily.
