What an ALS Family Really Thinks About the Ice Bucket Challenge
There is a lot of debate about whether the Ice Bucket Challenge is actually effective in raising funds and awareness of ALS. Bo Stern is a wife and mom blogging her stories about life and it's challenges over the past few years since her husband was diagnosed. In her most recent blog, Bo speaks up about her thoughts on the effectiveness of the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Read Bo Stern's blog here. Here is just a small snippit:
Because here’s the deal: We are in for the fight of our lives with this monster, and the very LAST thing I want is for people to give quietly, anonymously, and then slink away. Raise the roof! Raise a ruckus! Call all sorts of attention to yourself! I will be happy for you and every Facebook like you receive, as you nudge ALS an inch or two closer to the collective public consciousness.
I like being able to hear and read the different points of view on the Challenge. Results are showing that the Ice Bucket Challenge IS in fact raising money for ALS and is definitely raising awareness. I say, keep it comin!
Here's MY Ice Bucket Challenge Video done here at the studio last week.
