I think it’s great that people are trying to raise awareness for ALS (or any other cause, for that matter), but wouldn’t a better idea be to actually donate money to a foundation instead of dumping water on yourselves?
How exactly is WASTING WATER helping ANY cause?
Oh wait – if you DON’T dump water on yourself (or submerge yourself into a cold pool/pond/lake/stream/ocean/etc.) within 24 hours, THEN you have to donate. Yeah, that’s a great way to help the cause.
Ever wonder why the folks in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and any other state suffering from a MAJOR DROUGHT aren’t participating in this?
If you don’t bother reading anything other than Facebook, take a moment to Google ‘US drought’. Or, just head over to http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/ and look at the pretty picture.
