The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has exploded online as a viral phenomenon, prompting new interest and attention towards the ALS disease. ALS, also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a muscular degenerative disorder that affects the muscle neurons of the body. Eventually, it leads to paralysis, vital organ failure and, in some cases, death.
This social media phenomenon involves dumping a pail of ice cold water over your head and then challenging three other people to do the same within 24 hours. If you do not accept the task, you will have to donate $100 to the ALS Association which fights amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Mark Zuckerberg have all taken on the ice bucket challenge, unfortunately President Obama turned down Justin Bieber’s nomination but pledged to make a donation.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg jumps on the viral Ice Bucket Challenge trend, challenging Bill Gates to do the same to raise awareness of motor neurone disease.
Bill Gates accepts Mark Zuckerberg’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and nominates Elon Musk, Ryan Seacrest and Chris Anderson from TED to participate and raise awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Apple’s top executive, Tim Cook took the Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters in front of a live audience and alongside performing artist Michael Franti, whom he challenged to do the same that day.
First time round Justin Bieber, similarly to Charlie Sheen, didn’t quite get it and decided not to use ice or a bucket to complete the challenge, creatively opting for a saucepan and just water. That’s more like it! After admitting his Saturday attempt at the ALS ice bucket challenge was feeble, Justin Bieber repeated the challenge on Sunday, and for good measure did it topless
