I don't think "Ice Buket"challenge is the best way to make people give more attention to ALS,because ...
Agree,the greatest contibution made by stars is their donation,not the raised awareness of ASL,most people merely take this challenge as a entertainment,they do not bother to search more information about the rare disease
Although I know many people doing this out of good purpose, I still think this is not adviceable. As we know , many people live in the areas that are deficent in water and water is what they need badly. Now we are wasting it and many people may die of thrist in Africa or just anywhere at anytime. What's worse, some celebrities do this with the purpose of increasing their reputation and they take advantage of it. I know donation is a nice, but we can still figure out a more sustainable way to help those ALS patients. Act rationally!!!

What charity events are acceptable to you then. Did you read that the ALS awareness, in terms of donations have risen exponentially. I agree it is a little silly, but so what, it is raising money and more people are aware. Good on this organization. Well Done!
It is very important to raise awareness to all forms of critical illness but wasting precious resource just reflect the real degeneration is already happening in those human brains with or without ALS - so why bother if this is the only human intelligence have.
