Honestly, a lot of ways people have chose to “raise awareness” have not always settled easily with me due to some of these ways being… well, not a real way of spreading awareness, and I’ll admit, at first, I didn’t really see how an ice-water challenge could do anything for any kind of illness awareness, but once my dad was involved (and filmed with the news channel) in it, I seen the impact the whole thing is making, all over the world. Just the fact that people are getting involved to such an extent, I think is wonderful. As for dumping water on someone’s head… Well, I think it could be more fun that actually raising any long-term awareness, but I don’t know. I’m sure it will keep many of the people who have gotten involved plenty aware, and encourage them to spread the word.
