Anything to raise awareness! And, on days like today (heat index of 41 degrees) I'll gladly take an ice water dowsing.
The journey IS the destination!

In effect, the #Ice Bucket Challenge# is quite a good idea to raise public  awareness of the disease, calling on more guys to participate  as well as gather money for those in need. I just highly recommend people who accept the Challenge use less ice 'cause water is so valuable that we can't afford to waste it. In certain northern area of China, people suffer a lot due to water shortage. If I were nominated, I would prefer to donate 100 dollars instead of pouring a bucket of ice over my head.

Only do like this, can draw more people's attention.
Combine charity and entertainment, why not?

There are severe water shortages in many parts of the world. It's a shame to waste such a precious commodity when the next war will be fought over this essential and dwindling resource.  Raising awareness and donating to useful causes is important, but this ice bucket gimmick is turning into an individual show for attention seekers anxiously waiting to be named as a challenger.

I don't think "Ice Buket"challenge is the best way to make people give more attention to ALS,because it is a behavior of wasting water resourses.And when people watch the videos their idols posted on the microblog,they may  pay more attention to the idols rather than ALS,so the real meaning of the Ice Bucket challenge will be neglected.Of course,it is effective to spread the knowledge of ALS and rasie people's awareness of it through stars;howevercomparing with accepting the challenge,i consider that directly advocating their fans to donate to those patients is better.
