We’re loving the celebrity videos for the Ice Bucket Challenge. If you don’t know what it is – basically people are dumping buckets of ice water on their head to raise awareness and money for ALS.
If you think it’s not making a difference, you are wrong. ALS donations are up. The official website said, “Between July 29 and today, August 12, The ALS Association and its 38 chapters have received an astonishing $4 million in donations compared to $1.12 million during the same time period last year.” That’s impressive.
“We have never seen anything like this in the history of the disease,” said Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the level of compassion, generosity and sense of humor that people are exhibiting as they take part in this impactful viral initiative.”
So here’s some of our favorite videos –
Bill Gates. Only he would go this far to dump a bucket of water on his head – constructing a contraption, hiring a video editor (we can only assume)..
Stephen Amell. This might be one of our favorite ones. Why is that? Well – he’s shirtless. And I feel like he can kinda kick ass at everything. So this video is just – well, it’s Stephen Amell. Just watch and stare at the pretty.
Oprah. Well, it’s Oprah. And the way the water gets poured on her is funny. That’s what best friends are for.
Demi Lovato. She got her fans in on it and went through a line of water. Demi’s pretty much a kick ass chick.
Justin Timberlake. Cause well – it’s Justin Timberlake.
Country star Hunter Hayes. Watch this video – cause he gets everyone involved. He takes it to another level.
And finally, Chris Pratt. Cause nobody does a take on “ice” like Chris does.
