A few (impolite) questions about the ice bucket challenge

mixofspring:

Ice bucket challenge food for thought…Interesting article, I originally was just curious and searched where the money was actually going and how it would be spent, since it is over 13 million…and came across this article with some very good points. I did a 5k for Lou Gehrig in miami a few years ago, and still really didn’t know much about it.

I’ve done relay for life and of course back then sported that yellow band and pink ribbon, but while the impact social media and celebrities have on influencing people, understanding it on a deeper level is probably something one should look into more if they do actually care to get informed…

I think that if so many people can put so much attention on something they can honestly say they don’t know that much about (exceptions of course) then they can also actually realize that there are local charity events and other ways to help out. IE. donating blood, joining/participating in a relay for life on their campus, looking into 5k’s, instead of a one time video, theres things you can do to directly contribute not just money but your time.

Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, etc, there are other causes that directly affect a wider amount of people’s lives and hopefully they can come up with a creative fad as well to bring awareness like this…

"the most successful charities will be those that are best at soliciting funds, not those that are best at making the world a better place"

"The CDC estimates the prevalence of ALS in the U.S. at about 12,000 persons….the disease is rare, far outstripped by many other conditions requiring research funding. These include Alzheimer’s (an estimated 5.2 million patients in the U.S.), and diabetes (25.8 million)."

"It’s a fair guess that most people prompted by ice bucket publicity to make a donation don’t know much about ALS beyond the fact that Lou Gehrig got it"

#GazaUnderAttack When will the bloodshed end?

"Hamas is a terrorist group. It also terrorizes its own people. However, this should be a conflict between Hamas and the Israeli government. Innocent people and kids on both sides should not pay the price…. kids don’t even know what is going on."

The way the media twists things is insane. innocent people are dying on both sides. It’s heartbreaking. Picking sides is pointless when both are shedding blood of innocents. And for what…when did land become more valuable than lives.
