Yesterday my best friend, Marina, and I did the ALS Awareness Ice Bucket Challenge! We’ve seen so many Ice Bucket Challenge videos on Facebook and YouTube recently and we wanted to make sure that our video was not only spreading awareness, but also informing people about ALS (also commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). This cause is near to our hearts because we personally know someone diagnosed with ALS and this is just one of the many ways we can show our utmost support for him.
It is VERY unusual that I would ask this, but please, please, please SHARE this video on social media. Help to spread awareness and inform others about ALS. Also, we challenge YOU to participate and film your own Ice Bucket Challenge video! This challenge has been sweeping the nation and as a result The ALS Association has seen a major increase in donations in the last few weeks. You can make a difference! Use the hashtags #StrikeOutALS and #IceBucketChallenge when sharing this video on social media.
You can also donate to ALS research at http://www.alsa.org/.
Help us to create a world without ALS.
