This will be a rant, you’ve been warned.
I am seriously tired of all the negativity on my feed lately surrounding the “Ice Challenge” videos. It’s true some people aren’t keeping up with the original concept, but it’s doing the job.
Like with anything on the internet, there’s different sources or opinions on how this all started. The simple explanation for the challenge is to take a video of yourself and call people out after you completed it. Donate $10 to the ALS Association if you completed the challenge and $100 if you didn’t. Some have changed the rules but the end result, at least to me, has still been the same which is to raise money and overall awareness of the crippling disease.
Regardless of how you feel, you can’t deny the results. The millions that have been, and continue to be raised has far surpassed the amount in previous years not to mention the amount of attention the disease is getting. It’d be great if we could use this same model for other illnesses, but the bottom line is it’s working.
With all the other horrible shit going on in the world it’s nice to see people come together and fight for SOMETHING positive.
