When Dogs Had Cold Water Thrown On Em When I Was A Kid.....

Feed(s): 

It has literally become a world-wide phenomenon! The Ice Bucket Challenge is everywhere! So why was I even a little surprised when my friend Yvonne, who has some "fancy government job", called out "little old me" to take the ice bath? Oh well, I have always been a guy who loves to help others and do my part! I actually did research on the event. Here's how it works, in case you don't know. Once a person is challenged, they have 24 hours to pour a bucket of ice water over their heads, and film it. They then are responsible to send $10 in a donation to the ALS Association. If they refuse the "challenge" they must send in $100. Simple AND EFFECTIVE! Since the Challenge started in late June, $79.7 million dollars has been collected in the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease), a horrible disease that initially attacks the muscles, but eventually causes numerous other problems, including trouble swallowing and even breathing!! And although some people live many years with ALS, it is a lot of times is fatal! So, take a look at this "Dog" getting a bath (thanks to my camera-chick, Maddy), make sure you tell the people I challenged to watch it, but most importantly..send a donation to: www.alsa.org/donate
