22 Aug Susan’s Sound Advice #650
The whole purpose of the “ice bucket challenge” was to bring awareness to the horrible disease known as ALS. I have been nominated by many people to dump the ice on my head, but I opted to donate to the actual charity instead. A dear, dear friend of mine was JUST diagnosed with this illness two months ago, so this whole social media awareness is very timely. His diagnosis is bleak…he has the worst form of the disease. Let’s not relegate the purpose of this challenge to a mere postscript. The ice challenge is the alternative to contributing money. Take the money you are spending on bagged ice and donate it to ALS research.
