For those who are wondering why the hell everybody dumping Ice cold water on their heads here is the facts:The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one's head or donating to the ALS Association in the United States. It went viral throughout social media during the Northern-Hemisphere summer of 2014.
The challenge dares nominated participants to have a bucket of ice water poured on their head. One common stipulation gives 24 hours from the time they are nominated to complete the dare; otherwise, the participant is asked to donate money to charity. Among the ones raising awareness about ALS we have to shine the light on Ravens former player O.J. Brigance who is currently battling the disease. Brigance is currently the team’s Senior Advisor to Player Development, and he released a statement Wednesday, urging people to donate for the cause. “The viral support the #ALSIceBucketChallenge has grown an unprecendted support and awareness for the ALS community. We all have to thank Peter Frates for coming up with the challenge to make ALS a relevant topic. This has been a fun way to get the world talking about ALS.
