10 lbs of ice in a water filled cooler makes for an extremely cold Ice Bucket Challenge.
You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
The elderly are either adorable or the wrinkly reincarnation of Satan there is no in between

"I’ve worked in bigger casts, but it’s always mostly men like on That ’70s show. So actually, working around all of these women, I was a little nervous. But seriously, they’re all so wonderful. There’s not one girl who’s like a diva.” - Laura Prepon

Celebrities doing the ALS ice bucket challenge
wow im really happy that all of these wealthy people would prefer doing this than donating money to a charity that will save lives
Okay, I’m a stop you right there. Yes, the basis of the challenge is dump water on your head or donate. But what this challenge is meant to do is RAISE AWARENESS. People who see this end up wondering and then learning what ALS is. And who better to spread the message than celebrities?
People who do the challenge are also still asked to make a donation, and to pass on the challenge. This is good. These celebrities are raising awareness, spreading the message, and probably still donating. But hey, they’re horrible people because they participated in this right? It would ‘ve been better if they wrote a check and never told anyone about it at all.
fun reminder that lady gaga also did this and then donated $10,000 to the foundation and i doubt she’s the only one to do that so pls chill
It really warms my heart to see so many people raising money for ALS. My cousin died a few years ago from ALS, and it had a huge effect on the entire family. Thank you very much to all the participants!
Charlie Sheen also donated $10,000 to the foundation. And people are giving him shit about it. People are giving him shit about doing such a fantastic thing. Like wow. Can’t catch a break.
As of today, 15.6 MILLION dollars has been donated. People aren’t just dumping water on their heads. They are also donating and spreading awareness.
Jesus people find a reason to bitch about anything. A simple Google search, or quick trip to any news outlet will show you that a TON OF MONEY has been donated to help fight this terrible disease.
On top of that, it has created a dialogue about it. Everywhere you go people are talking about the Challenge and in turn, ALS and it’s not only raising awareness to people previously in the dark, but it’s creating a support community for people battling ALS and their families.

people complain sooo much about social media and “twitter activism” completely ignoring that without social media the only way anyone would know whats going on is through media controlled by straight, white, capitalist men
the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
"When did you decide to be gay?"
Last week. I woke up and I was like I want to be judged and not accepted by most of society and denied basic human rights. I thought it would be fun to not be allowed to get married and to be called rude names when I’m with the person I love. I mean, who wouldn’t want that?
i saw the screencaps and gifs for it and i was like “this is some racist bullshit”
Wait.. We’re calling Taylor Swift racist now? She wasn’t racist when she dressed like a thug and did a video with T Pain for some award show.
Also the concept of the whole fucking video flew over the heads of these twats. Ugh tumblr . I never usually comment on the herds of sheep either but this literally, LITERALLY addresses EXACTLY what she’s trying to counter through her song / video. Have half of you even bothered to - ugh. Nevermind .
Cops can be assholes, this isn’t a new or shocking discovery, but before you start saying “fuck the police” or calling for the dismantlement of law enforcement departments on a widespread level, think of who is going to come to your aid in a 9/11, Virginia Tech or Aurora type situation.
Civilized society cannot function without law enforcement. Things as basic as driving to the store to get milk would be exponentially more difficult without them. Do they need to be held accountable for their actions? Definitely. Do a good portion need to be taken down from their power trip? Without question. But if you honestly believe that we would be better off without them, you’re seriously deluded.
