This challenge involves dumping ice cold water over the head of the individual who’s been challenge is intended to raise awareness for ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, hence the name ALS ice bucket challenge. The person nominated must complete the challenge within 24 hours of being nominated or donate $100 dollars to ALS Association. And in the light of supporting a worthy cause while spreading fun at the same time, most people choose to donate and still perform the ice bucket challenge. This fund raising project surely reached a phenomenal impact to the public in general – where people from all walks of life including famous personalities are doing the ice bucket challenge.
ALS is also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” it is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. As it progresses and the motor neuron dies, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is also lost. This may eventually leave the patient totally paralyzed during the later stages of the disease.
The ALS Association is bringing hope to those people affected by the disease by leading the way in global research and providing assistance - through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence, and fostering government partnerships. The Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting ALS and with the attention that the fund raising project is getting right now, there is a big hope that more and more people will be educated about ALS.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is Simply Contagious
What a great way to spread awareness, right?! Ice Bucket Challenge became a great tool in creating awareness about a disease that probably not a lot of people are familiar with. As the popularity of this fun challenge continues to spread so is the awareness about ALS.
As of August 25, The ALS Association has received 79.7 million dollars in donations, from July 29 to August 25. That’s way more than the $2.5 million dollars raised during the same time period last year. These donations came from existing donors and 1.7 million new donors to The Association. That’s a very promising development, I’m positive that before the fun died out we’ll be able to reach and educate as many people as possible with ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

“A simple system that anybody can follow to potentially make more money than they ever have before.”
That decision spawned an idea that’s kind of turned into this bizarre phenomenon called the 'Fight the Forces of Evil' tool-kit.
It wound up having a strange effect on the majority of the people I showed it to:
- It made them want it.
- And it made the people they showed it to want it too.
People from all walks of life have found themselves unable to resist the power of the 2 'Mesmer Effect' questions that are part of this simple system. These are the 2 questions you have to ask if you want someone to buy from you without ever feeling like they’re being sold to. It’s the secret to the art “selling without selling”.
They found themselves wanting to be part of a company that has a purpose, where they can also potentially earn more than anywhere else. And they began passing it on, and the people they passed it on to also pass it on. All that passing on gets products into the hands of business owners and regular people who really need them. And the coolest part is, along the way, all that passing it on has help many people earn more than they have anywhere else.
