ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness and funds for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a kind of illness which affects nerve cells in the brain down to the spinal cord. It causes paralysis and death to those who have it. As of the moment ALS has no cure yet and also the reason of the occurrence is unknown.

To successfully done the Ice Bucket challenge, a person would have to dump ice cold water on his / her head (it can be done with the help from a friend). Afterwards, that person would have to nominate 3 of his aquantances to also do the challenge. Those who are nominated should perform the ICB within 24 hours and donate $10. Those who won’t perform the stint would have to donate greater amount, which is around $100.
