ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Today i got challeged by my sweets friends Draakje and Zaza to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

The challenge dares nominated participants to having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and challenging others to do the same. Ofcourse i want to support this organization with there ice bucket project so even when i really dislike coldness i got my self the free bucket (incl animation) and poured a bucket of ice water on my head. It was freezing but… a good thing to do!

I will nominate Caoimhe, Falbala, Auster, Poulet, Zzoiee, Rico and Natzuka.
You will have 24 hours peeps to do the same.
