My grandmother, 2 aunts, and 1 uncle all passed due to ALS. It's a terrible disease that is heart-wrenching to watch as it makes its progression.

I used to think that this challenge was an easy way to cop out of donating money to a good cause, one that is very dear to me. Either that or it's blackmailing people into giving, something that no one appreciates. But now that I read that donations have more than tripled to the ALS Association from this time last year, I have to say that my hat goes off to those who take part. Thanks for raising awareness, and a special thanks for those who take the challenge AND make a donation.
