Talk about something going viral, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has done just that! What started out as a quick stunt for a couple of friends showing support for each other and this debilitating disease has taken the U.S. and other countries by storm. I knew it was only a matter of time before I was going to be a part of this phenomenon!

Mandee Montana was challenged by a friend of hers Monday night and she carried out the challenge, with a little help from me, yesterday afternoon. I had the honor of dumping an ice-cold cooler of water on her head! Once that was done, the gauntlet was thrown down and I was issued the challenge!

I knew it was going to be cold, but I had no idea it was going to be that cold! There I stood waiting for it and within a split seconds time, it was over, but the shock lasted for quite a few seconds!

Here I am taking the challenge.

Now that I’ve taken the challenge, I still plan on making a donation to ALS and I’ve issued a few challenges of my own. Although I mention them in the video, I also want to call them out here and I’m linking to their Facebook pages so that their fans are aware of the challenge and to encourage them to carry out the #ALSIcebucketChallenge, too!

Here goes the challenge:

I am proud to be a part of something that is doing good and hopefully they’ll find a cure for this disease thanks to this challenge.
