Here I Am Accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challange

I woke up this morning to discover that Brent Bowen, of Adventures In Sci-Fi Publishing fame, had named me in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Not one to delay the inevitable, I enlisted the help of my family to complete the challenge. We made a donation to the ALS Foundation this morning, and then, we me made this video:

In case it wasn’t clear in the video, I challenged Doug Rubin, Jennifer Ashlock, Eric Straus, and Lisa Krupp. You guys have 24 hours…

  1. Don’t want to pour cold water on anyone’s parade, but I thought these were interesting from Wikipedia:
    “American stunt performer and TV personality Steve-O questioned the campaign, suggesting that celebrities’ videos generally forgot to share donation information for ALS charities… He noted that, of the videos he viewed, only Charlie Sheen and Bill Gates noted that the point is to donate money.”

    And, incredibly: “On August 21, 2014, several firefighters in Campbellsville, Kentucky were injured by electric shock, including one critically, when the ladder they were using to spray the school band for the Ice Bucket Challenge came too close to a high-voltage power line.”
