ice bucket challenge

Remember those heady days back in the summer of 2014 when everyone was dumping buckets of ice water over their heads to support ALS research? The Ice Bucket Challenge was taken up by everyone from ex-presidents to football stars; the ALS Association received an additional $100 million in donations thanks to the challenge.
