The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is the most viral thing on the internet right now. While I was critical of it in the beginning because so many people were just dumping a bucket of ice water over their head with no intention of donating to the charitable cause. There was also this little issue of the severe drought we are suffering from in California. It may seem miniscule to the rest of the country but the water shortage out here is extrememly serious.
I was challeneged by many people to take the challenge, and ignored most. It wasn’t until I read on the ALS website that they had generated over $70 million due to this phenomenom. So Sunday evening after a family dinner surrounded by my kids and graand kids I took the plunge (so to speak).
Being concious of the drought, I took my challenge in the pool and have also made a $100 donation to the ALS Foundation. I didn’t challenge anyone, do as you see fit.
