Good thread! I wish I could donate some money also...but really now,I don't see the connection between this challange and disease...And about the diseases,all of this has a cure(cancer,HIV and other "incurable" diseases),but the profit means more for this filthy bastards...I know cases of very rich people or stars who went in the last stage of cancer and they were cured...
On 15 July a golfer in Florida, Charles Kennedy, was nominated by a friend to do an Ice Bucket Challenge. At the time, the challenge was not connected to a particular charity, but Mr Kennedy decided that the money raised by his ice bucket challenge should go to ALS because his cousin suffered from the disease.
He then nominated his cousin's wife to soak herself and urge others to take it on. It then reached the radar of another ALS sufferer, Pat Quinn from New York.
The 31-year-old launched the campaign with the help of friend Pete Frates, a former Boston college basketball player who also suffers from the condition.
Mr Frates is credited with helping the challenge truly go viral after he posted a video nominating friends and stars including US football player Tom Brady
