Politicians, celebrities, and – probably some of your Facebook friends – are getting soaked for a good cause. The #IceBucketChallenge, launched by the ALS Foundation to raise money for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), has raised a whopping $4 million so far. That’s a nearly threefold increase over the same donation period last year, the ALS Association said. It has added more than 70,000 new donors to its ranks, thanks to the popularity of the challenge, which requires participants to nominate someone else to complete the challenge. A search of #IceBucketChallenge on social media platforms like Twitter and YouTube bring up thousands of entries. Here are a few of our favorites:
