ALS

Yesterday my husband and I were nominated to do the very viral ALS ice bucket challenge. We accepted, donated and have challenged 3 others to do the same.
This challenge is amazing at how viral it has become and how much awareness it has brought to wards this awful disease. The donations are coming in and more and more people are now aware of what it is and how it affects people living with it. To me is was important to be part of this awareness as I my cousins husband is living with ALS and to see and hear what them as a family has to go through.
I also found this great post on how another family thinks of the ice bucket challenge and felt I should pass it along for others to please read.

Bo Stern – what an ALS family really thinks.

I also want to share this video on how this challenge all started.
Pete’s Challenge

All I can say is please if you haven’t donated already to do so because every little bit counts.
