Anthony Carbajal Puts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in Perspective

I’ve been quietly sitting through the debate on the ice bucket challenge because it reminds me too much of the pink ribbon debate and I’m sort of tired of that.

But this.

This is why awareness of devastating diseases is so important, and this is why I believe something as ridiculous as the ice bucket challenge can be an effective educational tool. Forget about the fundraising side of things, how many people even knew what ALS was two weeks ago?
