ice bucket challenge

If you have been paying any attention to you social media timelines lately, you may have noticed a new fad going around called the ‘ice bucket challenge’

Much like any other social media challenge (remember those idiotic neknominations…) it requires a person to perform – a usually ridiculous – task and then nominate or challenge other friends to do the same.

The ‘ice bucket challenge’, however, seems to support a good cause. Rather than simply dumping a bucket of ice water on your head for no apparent reason, the aim of the challenge is to raise awareness and money for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
