    Well, it raises awareness.
    For one, I can mention that I had no idea about this disease or the foundation, but this challenge made me aware of it and I ended up donating for the cause.
    I believe there are many more stories like this out there. The visibility the foundation and the disease are getting from this is priceless.

    When you are challenged you can either dump the ice and pass the challenge on or donate $100 to ALS

    What I have read is if you accept the challenge and dump the ice you only have to donate $10 if you pass the challenge you have to donate $100

    Woah! :eek:
    Did I just see Richard Garriott de Cayeux flag gray? :confused:
    Isn't she supposed to still have her [young] player status on? What happened?! :mad:
    Luring her outside of the guard zone with promises of ice cream and then mind blasting her like that...for shame! :(
    :yell::rant2:
    Where is Rainz when you need him?! :eyes:
    :lol:

    All joking aside...
    Thanks for participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
    What a beautiful family you have :) So cute you all did it together :)

    Good Job

    I heard on the radio this morning that the "Ice Bucket Challenge" has raised over 50 million dollars so far.
