Saving Ice Buckets For ALS

I am sure you heard of the Ice Bucket Social Media challenge…Don’t worry, I am not challenging anyone to dump ice water from a bucket over their heads. I am trying to start this anew, so we stop dumping clean drinking water which we have very little of on our planet. (Remember, I am an environmental scientist who has written several blogs on water, especially my March 29, 2014 Blog called: Drinking Water.)So with starting this new challenge for ALS, that will save our clean drinking water and push for a cure, I have a video up on the GoingTrueGreen Youtube channel. The Link is below:

So yes, while I am challenging all of you who are reading this, the challenge is completely different…
– You must challenge everyone you know who is working to send at least one dollar to ALS “Association”
(Donation distribution is reason for distinction above in quotes & their mail-in form option on the website)

– Then show everyone your best Celebratory Drink and tell us why!
(Let it be sparkling wine, champagne, beer, mead, juice, or your own brew!)

– No dumping of water, no wasted ice cubes, just refrigerate to toast the announcement of a cure!

So I am pushing to help save clean water, teach some facts, and get a cure to ALS. Perhaps you have a favorite homemade drink or a special imported beer! Kids can show their favorite juice or bottle of soda. Whatever your favorite celebratory drink is, show it and tell us why. Then save it in your refrigerator and pray for all those doing the research so that they look upon their great challenge anew and find the cure!
