The Ice Bucket Challenge to Strike Out ALS is soaking the nation!!!!!

Here's how you participate! Ice Bucket Challenge

Step 1: Create your challenge list, these are the people you want to challenge to either douse themselves with ice water, donate to the ALS Association Jim "Catfish" Hunter Chapter OR both!

Step 2: Assemble bucket, ice, water, and willing videographer. Optional: friends and family to douse you!

Step 3: Video yourself taking the challenge! Tell why you're taking the challenge and then issue the challenge to others. Usually it goes something like this

"Hi, I'm (insert name) and I'm taking the Ice Bucket Challenge to Strike Out ALS. (Tell why you want to support ALS). I challenge (insert your list of names here) to take the Ice Bucket Challenge! You have 24 hours to take the challenge or donate $100 to The ALS Association Jim "Catfish" Hunter Chapter...or you can do BOTH!"

Step 4: Post to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+...ANYWHERE with #IceBucketChallenge and #StrikeOutALS

REMEMBER: You can challenge ANYBODY! Ethel Kennedy even challenged President Obama!

Why should I participate in the challenge? Why can't I just give you some money?

Excellent question! We would love for you to do both! The challenge is giving The ALS Association a lot of visibility! Did you know that only about 50% of the general public is aware of ALS. Taking the challenge and posting on your social media profiles can help us reach those people who do not know about Lou Gehrig's disease. Fundraising is dependent on two key things, awareness and education. You can help us by taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge!

Ok....I'm in! Now, where do I donate?
