  1. Oh I agree with this so much. I’m not against raising money for devastating illnesses, however I am very against the tactics being used to do so. Why isn’t it enough to donate to charity because of the harsh realities of these illnesses? Half the people doing the ice bucket challenge on social media make no mention of ALS or even talk about it, which defeats the whole purpose. It’s all about the notoriety and jumping on the bandwagon. Frustrating! And I agree with the part about it not even closely reflecting the effects of ALS. They get wet, feel cold and uncomfortable for a few minutes, then move on with their lives.
