There are a lot of people talking smack and sick of the ALS challenge, really? They are saying that when people take the challenge they do not need to donate. That is not the case. The challenge is just for fun. ALS needs people to donate to continue the research of ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. Most of the people that have taken the challenge have donated. Of course they did. Especially the guys with a lot of money like Bill Gates. He even went as far as to design the perfect ice bucket challenge dumping system. This is brilliant and I would be interested to know how much money he did give. One Million dollars to Bill Gates is chunk change really. HA
