LGBT Celebs Get Wet For ALS
By Michelle Ehrhardt
The ice bucket challenge, the social media trend that's filling up your Facebook feed, has been benefitting the ALS Association, which works to fight Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Unlike planking or coning, however, this stunt aims to help spread awareness about and raise money to help fight disease.
Participants are asked to donate to the ALSA and then douse themselves in a bucket of ice water, before challenging friends to do the same. Having already raised over $41 million for the ALSA, a substantial increase from the $1.8 million raised during the same period last year, the challenge has received celebrity attention ranging from Chris Pratt to Christiano Ronaldo.
The list of celebs is far-ranging, and even includes legislator Brian Sims.
