Homer Simpson ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I like everyone else have seen friends posting on social media about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Some are entertaining, some are annoying.  Annoying in the sense that it wasn't that entertaining.  I'm not tired of seeing or hearing the challenges as I know it really is for a great cause.  That is if you put your money where your mouth is.  The whole point of the challenge is to get people talking about ALS. 

Here's where your money goes.  ALS has posted it on their website HERE

"ALS Canada is the leading non-profit health organization solely focused on fighting ALS. We lead a national ALS Research Program and we advocate to healthcare and government to gain better support for Canadians and their families living with ALS and to secure targeted research funding for ALS. We are currently working with the federal government to change the Compassionate Care Benefit (CCB) to better support families." ~ ALS Canada www.als.ca

The Ice Bucket Challenges have ignited the conversation!  So what is ALS?  Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body.

With that being said, even Homer Simpson got his dose of Ice Water!  Enjoy! Watch it HERE!
