Yup it's a good boost for research, but this particular stunt does have risks as noted. Not everyone should be in Polar Bear Clubs either.

 

There are risks involved in buttering my bread, but that doesn't mean when some idiot stabs himself with a butter knife that we should all take sandwich making more seriously.

 

Edit: Had to add, "Sandwich making has taken its first victim".

Maybe so, but man have they raised a ton of money for ALS research through the Ice Bucket Challenge. Over 60 million I thought I heard. Normally the ALS foundations would have only raised a couple million for the entire year. Brilliant use of social media, actually. Other charitable organizations must be quite envious.

 

 

 

Oh, I agree and I posted a link a while back saying how much donations were up.  But with stupid stunts like what 50 did, it is not about ALS.  It is about him making fun of someone and donating money to a charity not necessarily ALS.  Its a, hey look at me I am somewhat famous and look what I am doing, kind of thing and honestly, pretty disrespectful towards the real reason this all started.
