Ice Bucket Challenge social media complainers

If we can all bring awareness to charities such as ALS, Macmillan etc then this is for the great of good, and the Ice Bucket Challenge going viral around the world has done just that. Millions are sharing their video clips to show their support, but there are a few complainers in the world as well that disagree.

Many stars such as Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, as well as President George W. Bush have taken part and show their support for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Not all are just donating to ALS; people are also using the Ice Bucket Challenge to bring awareness to other charities, which is fantastic. So far since the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge started donations have reached $80 million, which compared to $2.5 million during the same time period last year is staggering – the challenge is working, and has become one of the best Internet awareness campaigns to date.

It has become so popular worldwide that even in Gaza people are contributing awareness, but because they are finding it hard to find water they are calling it the ‘Rubble Bucket Challenge’. The video shown below uploaded by Team Palestina shows one man tipping a bucket of rubble over his head – What do you think about his contribution by using rubble instead of water?

We have noticed on social media sites such as Twitter but mainly Facebook, users are complaining saying they do not need to do the Ice Bucket Challenge; instead they will just donate the money. But, social networkers are responding saying it is ok to donate, but people should also do the challenge where you pour icy cold water over your head as this brings more awareness.

Other people cannot see you donating money, but if you post a video this brings more awareness because it is funny. Some have even classed these not doing the challenge moaners and party-poopers. Leonardo DiCaprio recently completed his challenge and Matt Damon used toilet water for his, and not once did they complain.

Facebook users have said everyone has an opinion, but if you get nominated to do the Ice Bucket Challenge people should just accept because it is more notable to watch a video rather than donating, do both.

Have you refused to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, if so please let us know why?
