Why is my feed filled with people pouring bucket of ice water over their head?
It started a few weeks ago when people started uploading videos of them getting doused in buckets of ice water to spread ALS awareness around the globe.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $2.3 million since July 29th, this money will be used to find a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). ALS is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement, the progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to death.
A few hours ago Mark Zuckerberg uploaded his video of bathing in ice water after being challenged by the Governor Chris Christie. Mark completed the challenge in good faith and now has challenged Bill Gates, Sheryl Sandberg and Reed Hastings to do the same.
