ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

video

"The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge went viral on social media starting July 2014, an activity that involves pouring the bucket of ice water on the head to promote awareness of the Amyothropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or also commonly called Lou Gehrig's disease, a progressive neuro generative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

The challenge dares the nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. It has to be done within 24 hours or otherwise forfeited by a way of a charitable financial donation." (Source: Wikipedia.org)

I first knew about it when my bestie, Felix, was asking me who I would nominate for the ice bucket challenge some time ago. I was blurred, didn't understand what he meant. Then he mentioned about ALS that he thought I was suffering from it. Haha...

So, when I was nominated the ALS Bucket Challenge by my nephew from Hong Kong, the first person who appeared on my mind to nominate was Felix. Haha... Not because I was angry, no no, no such thing at all. I nominated him because I know he is the most supportive person who will accept the challenge without thinking much. Am I right Lix? ;)

The next person was Ching, my bestie in Taiwan. She's been busy recently with the change of her new career, therefore no time to chit chat lately. I guess she needed some refreshment from the bucket of ice water to freshen up her brain hehe... Ching, you can do it! Jia you!

Last but not least, my bestie whom I've known since childhood time, Shelly ;) She is such a sociable person and kind heart in nature. So I'm sure she will be glad to accept the challenge and share this challenge with the rest of her friends ;)

So, have fun guys! I'm waiting for your videos soon on Facebook! :D

I am watching this video twice - once in facebook this morning. You've done great in editing part. And also I was wondering what this challenge is actually suppose to mean. But you've given the background. Thank you!

Thank you Sherab for watching it hehe... I just learned how to edit the video yesterday by doing trial and error hehe... Yeah, basically it's to spread awareness about the ALS, and at the same time people can choose to accept the challenge, to donate to any charitable organization, or to do both. It's been around for quite some time and you can watch more in Facebook. So glad that this post can give you clearer idea about the ice bucket challenge :) Have a great week ahead to you! ^^

Dont worry, Im not against this IBC yaaa... as I think its really boost the awareness, at the same time the cash needed for the research purposes.

Welldone, Rimaaaaa!

Rima Reyka said...

No worry Shel, I respect your decision as i believe that you had your own reason why you chose not to do it :)

Doing or not doing it, we are still best friends! ;) Have a wonderful week ahead!
