Ice Bucket Challenge

Postby ngl2010 » Wed Aug 27, 2014 9:02 am

I got to know about this challenge a few days ago when DS told me about Taylor Swift did the ice bucket challenge.

I think it is a wonderful way to increase awareness on ALS and get donations for research, etc. Hopefully one day there will be cure to it. :pray:

Yes, one can pick up the challenge and nominate the next guy to do it or skip the challenge and make a donation.

I support the use of recycled water instead of clean water.

Yup, perhaps can use the water for rinsing rice or vege, we used a smaller basin instead of the big pail.

It started as a fun publicity stunt amongst hollywood celebs, but when smaller-timers in HK/TW started doing the same thing in their backyards and instagramming/tweeting their antics, it's no longer that cool to me! I wonder if the Asian stars know what they're doing and whether they've donated USD100 to the foundation at all or not!

That's how I feel too, when everybody is doing it, dunno whether they are doing it for fun, 跟风, or did they really donate? :shrug:

Kudos to those who donated :salute:
