Why do it?
There were a few posts that I’ve seen on social media about the fact that “you’re wasting water”, “why would you dump water to get out of donating?”
But there are a few reasons why I decided that I needed to continue spreading this message.
Doctors don’t know why ALS happens. There IS NO cure for ALS.
Sure a lot of money has been raised so far, but when money is needed for research then there never is enough.
I read this article
CTV News posted a story from the side of an ALS family — “Ice Bucket Challenge: A wife explains what it’s like to live with ALS“
Of course, I had to link through to her blog.
The things that she challenges an able-bodied person to do are next to impossible!
And her husband has to do it. Every day.
He doesn’t get a choice.
My friend, Anson Dixon, nominated me to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
He was nominated by Craig
You have to read Craig’s post about why he decided to rise to the challenge!
I rose to the #IceBucketChallenge!
Dump water! Donate money! Raise awareness!!
As I said in the video, if you can, donate.
ALS could hit anyone.
