The Ice Bucket Challenge has helped raise millions of dollars for ALS research. Last week, our office was challenged & we accepted. Our office has been directly impacted by ALS, so we know firsthand the devastating effect that this terrible disease has on anyone who has it, as well as their families, friends, & all loved ones.
We hope that the Ice Bucket Challenge will help raise enough money & enough awareness that a cure can be found within our lifetimes. If you have been challenged, what are you waiting for? Take the challenge today and make a donation to The ALS Association.

Wikipedia gives the following information on the Ice Bucket Challenge:
The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. It went viral on social media during July–August 2014. In the US, many people participate for the ALS Association, and in the UK, many people participate for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, although some individuals have opted to donate their money from the Ice Bucket Challenge to other organizations.
The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.
