The Ice Bucket challenge has resulted in millions of dollars of donations. As of last August, it was 80 million dollars! This organization is striving to do a lot to provide care and compassion as well as research for a cure.
I am not tagging anyone, but I would like to promote a charitable cause. Please consider making a blood donation if you are able. I made a plasma donation at Heartland Blood Centers. I love the idea of making a donation that costs me nothing moneywise, but has the potential of saving human lives! Whatever your chosen cause, give--not for reward, but enjoy giving -- just because someone can use your help.
Some people dislike this Facebook ice bucket phenomenon, condemning it as a mindless opportunity for gratuitous selfies. Whatever. Do you remember the 1983 movie Flashdance? There was a moment where a very fit and attractive dancer splashed herself with water. I have recreated the scene for your viewing pleasure. The image may not be safe for work (or play, or mealtimes, or... ever).
