The ice bucket challenge has become a popular way to raise money and awareness for the disease known as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. Here’s how it works, if you accept the challenge, you have to post video of yourself dumping a bucket of ice water over your head, if you fail to do so, just donate money to fight ALS. You could also challenge your friends, the people you name have 24 hours to accept or donate money. You can also do both, of course.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a “progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.”
Mark’s participation in the Ice Bucket drenching was spurred by a challenge from Governor Chris Christie. He accepted the challenge and posted a video on his Facebook page. The post already got more than 100k likes and shares.
“Yesterday, Governor Chris Christie challenged me to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I accepted his challenge, and now I’m challenging Bill Gates, Sheryl Sandberg and Reed Hastings next, You guys have 24 hours to complete the challenge..” the 30-year-old Facebook founder captioned the video.
