ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

As you all have probably heard by some means (media, social media, friend, co-worker, etc.) ALS Association has set a challenge for everybody in order to spread awareness about the disease. 
The challenge is called: Ice Bucket Challenge.
The challenge itself is a pretty simple concept: Film yourself or someone getting a bucket of ice water dumped on you or them!
To help spread awareness: Post this video to your social media and use#icebucketchallenge#alsicebucketchallenge, and #strikeoutals.
The reason for the challenge: To bring awareness about ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. In the early stages of ALS, the patient will find it harder to use their muscles- causing difficulties in moving their arms and legs, talking, swallowing and breathing. The later stages of ALS can be total paralysis.
The ALS Association chose the Ice Bucket Challenge in order to show the contraction of muscles and the temporary paralysis that the ice water causes on that person (which is a normal symptom for ALS patients).
The exploitation of the social-media-run world has been a huge success in spreading awareness and collecting donations for research! So far, the ALS Association has raised $22.9 million dollars (with the help of celebrities and millions of every day people going out of their way for an awe-inspiring cause)!
If you are curious or have any questions about ALS’ Ice Bucket Challenge, feel free to ask any of our volunteers here at TeleGram:D
Keep up the great work guys and Stay MOTAvated!

90-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein arrested for peacefully protesting today in Ferguson. You can help get her and others out (@AwkwardDuck, @GeekNStereo, and some I’m less familiar with, Twitter-wise) by donating to #OperationHelpOrHush. They are not only raising money to bail out peaceful protestors, but they use all funds to help the community and bring them food, water, medical aid, gas masks, and other equipment to help them not die during this terrible time. Follow @SheSeauxSaditty for more info.
