There’s no doubt the Ice Bucket Challenge that’s consumed social media over the past few weeks has helped spread awareness for ALS and other charities. As of 8/22/14, the stunt has helped raise over $41 million for ALS research.
I was called out by a fellow coworker earlier in the week, and gladly accepted the challenge. After dumping a bucket of ice-filled water on my head, I nominated Mainstreethost to take part in the challenge. To my surprise, 60 or so employees accepted and donated.
Here’s How It Went Down:
- Brian Signorelli and his sales team over at HubSpot (Boston, MA)
- The Springs Events of Texas
- Peter Baio, Sam Wanamaker, and their teams over at LocalEdge (Tonawanda, NY)
We’ll give you all until early next week to complete the challenge. Get moving though, time is ticking!
You can donate to the ALS Association here.
