The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one’s head or donating to the ALS Association in the United States. It went viral throughout social media, where the challenge was to either dump a bucket of ice water on one’s head or donate to an ALS charity of the participant’s choice.
The challenge required nominated participants to have a bucket of ice water poured on their head. One common stipulation gives 24 hours to complete the dare from the time they are nominated; otherwise, the participant has to donate $100 to charity.
Cristiano Ronaldo got a soaking to raise awareness of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). After being nominated by his former teammate Darren Fletcher he had a bucket of iced water poured over him with the help of Fábio Coentrão. He’s now nominated Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and rapper Lil Wayne. The #Icebucketchallenge campaign has gained a fantastic advocate to encourage famous faces to take part.
