ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

As most of you have probably seen, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been going viral on social media in the past few weeks. Some of these challenges can be kind of pointless, for example the Polar Plunge that went around this spring, however this seems a bit different. ALS is a degenerative disease that affects the use of nerve cells and voluntary movement. This challenge has raised awareness about ALS and the ALS Association has raised over $5.5 million since it started in late July. Dumping a bucket filled with lots of ice over you head is not so bad, especially because it is for a good cause. Even if you opted to participate, I would definitely consider making a donation to ALS, every penny helps! Both Julianna and I had been nominated on our personal social media and yesterday, Abby from belleoftheball45 nominated Preppy by the Sea so here is our video! If you follow us on Instagram you most likely saw a shortened version of it earlier today! 

We now nominate theblondeprepmaggieroyce and monogrammeredith- Good luck you have 24 hours! 

And an after picture :) 

Because so many public figures have also participated in this challenge, we thought we would share some of our favorites!

1. The Patriots 
Being from New England, obviously the Patriots are our favorite team! This video is hilarious, the entire team is literally just throwing buckets of ice water EVERYWHERE- Go Pats!

2. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher 
Carrie is one of my favorite country singers and she and her husband are too cute in this video! 

3. Luke Bryan 
The commentary in this video is hilarious, plus he did it at Gillette Stadium! 

Have you participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge and what are your favorite videos you have seen?

  1. My cousin went to prom with Pete Frates, who the challenge was in his honor!! Although I did the challenge a few weeks ago (when it was started on Facebook) I'm totally up for doing it again since it is a great cause!!
