Accept the #IceBucketChallenge


Probably you've seen a lot of photos and videos this week of celebrities and other well known business people dumping buckets of ice water over their heads. Here's why and how we participated in it.

The #IceBucketChallenge is about raising money and awareness for a disease called “ALS” (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) which is a motor neurone disease.

The rules of the challenge:

To accept a person has to dump a bucket of ice water over his head within the next 24 hours or donate money (usually $100) toward fighting ALS. Even if a person completes the challenge, they're welcome to donate money too – actually everybody is most welcome to make a donation at http://www.alsa.org. After the ice water dumping nominate three other persons!

Even “normal” people can and should support this challenge. So, atwork´s CEO, Martina Grom, @magrom, was nominated by Sean McNeill, @S_McNeill, to participate (see Sean´s video here).

Martina accepted:

See her ice cold video here! Smiley


Martina nominated: @ArminWolf, @AdisJugo and @HeikeRitter. Do you accept the challenge?


Update 17. August, 6PM:

And, of course, there are a lot more videos of people doing the #IceBucketChallenge… business leaders like Satya Nadella, Bill Gates, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, John Legere and many more. Also celebrities like Justin Timberlake, The Rock, Conan O´Brien, did it. US-President Barack Obama just donated.
