Someone people have jumped on the bandwagon to criticize this viral movement of people accepting a challenge from someone to dump a bucket of ice water on their head or donate a named amount to an ALS charity. After they dump ice water on their heads, they get to challenge three others and name the amount they must donate should they fail the challenge.
Folks, I can a be pretty negative person who tends to criticize a lot, but people who criticize this are nothing but parsimonious killjoys. Yes, it’s silly, but it raises awareness and money in new and engaging way. It’s funny, and most importantly it harms NO ONE.
I think it is awesome; a really nice thing to do and a really fun way to do it.
