ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Surpassed This Impressive Goal! (Details)

Social Media is meant to be used for good, and that’s exactly what’s going on with the ‘ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’ viral sensation. In case you didn’t know: ALS stands for amyotrphic lateral sclerosis and is a rare neurodegenerative disease that affects only about 30,000 Americans according to the ALS Association.

It is also refereed to as Lou Gherig’s disease and it has been speculated that due to the rather low, in comparison, number of people this condition affects it is not fiscally logical to fund research. Understandably, those personally affected by it took matters into their own hands and used social media to raise awareness.

Hence the ALS Ice Bucket challenge was born and it has currently raised over $100 million!
