The Ice Bucket Challenge, a stunt designed to raise awareness and money for ALS, has become a viral phenomenon on social media, as participants post videos of themselves pouring or having someone else pour a bucket of ice water over their head, and then challenge someone else to repeat the act or make a donation. This week, the ALS Association announced it had received nearly $42M in donations over three weeks. But not all attempts to aid a cause have been so successful...
