The Ice Bucket Challenge

Lady Gaga did a great job of
the Ice Bucket Challenge!
It´s impossible to miss the latest craze, which has flooded social media (excuse the pun), raised millions for charity, and become a hot topic of conversation worldwide!  Read on to found out where the craze started, and see some of the best celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge Videos! The question is, would you take part?

Ice Bucket Challenge!
The Ice Bucket Challenge was started by the charity ALS, and just in case you’ve missed what it’s all about, it involves tipping a bucket filled with ice on top of you, filming it, posting it online, and then nominating others to do the same. The rules state that if you correctly complete the challenge, you only have to donate 10$ (or equivalent in euros/pounds), but if you refuse to participate after being nominated, you have to donate 100$ to ALS. As well as raising money, the Ice Bucket Challenge has also raised awareness of the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and the charity ALS. In terms of raising money, it’s a similar process to the #nomakeupselfie we saw in the UK a few months back, but this one is perhaps a little more challenging…

The Ice Bucket Challenge is exactly what it says
on the tin!
Everyone has been doing the Ice Bucket Challenge, from celebrities, to companies, to ordinary people, and in a short space of time the amount of coverage it has gained has been incredible! Let’s take a look at some of the celebrities (including some Spanish ones) who’ve taken part in the Ice Bucket Challenge:

David Beckham
Taylor Swift
Lady Gaga
Shakira and Pique 
Cristiano Ronaldo
Andrés Iniesta
What do you think of the challenge? Do you have a favorite video? Have you been nominated and participated in the challenge yourself?
