Ice Bucket Challenge- But what is ALS?

So a few days ago when I logged into facebook, I saw that my newsfeed was full of videos of people doing the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge”, nominating people etc. Since none of those posts failed to provide me with any information about what the hell ALS was all about I googled it.

ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the neurons controlling the working of voluntary muscles degenerates leading to hardening of muscles. Read more at www.als.org
So what does this Ice Bucket Challenge have anything to do with spreading awareness about ALS? When somebody pours a bucket of ice over them they experience numbness throughout their body which is exactly how an ALS patient suffers, except for most of his life! This trend was started by an American golfer Chris Kennedy who’s friend suffered with ALS, he poured a bucket of ice water on himself, posted the video on a social networking site and challenged three other people to do it and this spread like wildfire! If you’re nominated and fail to complete the challenge within 24 hours you’re supposed to donate money to the ALS organization or both. Many celebrities have accepted this challenge and in the past few weeks the organization has raised over $41.8 million in the past few weeks. About 1.2 million people have posted videos on various social networking sites to spread awareness. Many celebrities like George Bush, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Charlie Sheen and our very own Daler Mehindi, Sonakshi Sinha have taken up the challenge and donated to the organization.

So guys, irrespective of whether you’ve been nominated or not please do donate to this genuine cause at www.alsa.org/donate/
