If you accept the challenge, you have to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on your head and challenging other participants to do the same. Nominated people have 24 hours to comply or make a donation.

The Ice Bucket Challenge went viral on social media and became a real phenomenon with numerous celebrities, politicians, athletes posting videos of themselves online and on TV participating in the event.

The ALS Association has received $70.2 million in donations compared to $2.5 million during the same time period last year !
