ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Social Media Frenzy

August 21, 2014

I’m sure you know of someone who has been nominated!

Or  accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

Maybe you even did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

Or have donated to this cause!

Any way you look at it, it has touched you.

It has Touched Me and my Family!

2 of my 3 kids have accepted the challenge.

I have donated to ALS.

I have staff members and family members and friends doing both the challenge and donations.

Participate how you want. Learn about ALS.


In my case, we have a very dear friend who was diagnosed with this horrible, horrible disease in January.  Still, we can’t even comprehend what he and his family are going through and will continue to face for the years to come. It seems surreal!

Over the past few weeks, we have seen the ALS ice bucket challenge all over social media along with local and national news, media, celebrites, etc.  Completely amazing the awareness this challenge has brought to ALS and to people of all ages. To date, this challenge has helped raise over $15 million dollars.

If you haven’t done so already, accept the challenge or donate.  Visit the ALS website to learn more.


Here are some friends, family, CEOs and TV personalities doing the challenge, donating to ALS, and bringing awareness to this disease.
