There's a social media charity fundraiser
that's taking the world by storm . . .
the A.L.S. Ice Bucket Challenge!

Here's the idea . . .

Dump a bucket of ice water on your head.
Have someone shoot a video of the "deed",
and challenge a friend or relative
to shoot a similar video,
within 24 HOURS,
or write a check, a big check,
to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis),
better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Since its inception on July 29th,
the event has generated in excess
of $25-million (and growing.)

Pattie P (an early morning "regular" at Kaldi's Coffee)
got dunked with ice and water (see pics above),
and challenged her husband to reciprocate
with his own video and challenge.

Recent participants have included Bill Gates,
Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, George W. Bush,
Oprah Winfry, and Justin Timberlake . . .

who asks YOU to make a video,
and take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.


  1. This challenge is making the news everyday here in the UK Rick ……. every celebrity known to man has had ice thrown all over them in the last couple of days. It has been a very successful challenge and has made so much money for the charity, which is brilliant although, with my cynical hat on, celebrities also do it for their own publicity !!!!

  2. Me parece estupendo todo lo que se haga para ayudar...pero creo que hay otras políticas de reparto más equitativas en las que no serían necesarias estas acciones. Buena la foto de los hielos en la cabeza!!
