Ice Bucket Double Whammy!
I got tagged!
The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Ice Bucket Challenge was issued to me last night by my morning show co-host (and former friend) Deana Martinez. Yesterday my 12-year-old daughter London was challenged by a classmate. So, at some point today before the 24 hour time period expires, the two of us will handle our business.
These cold water challenges, while perhaps a little silly and insipid for those who view them, are raising a great deal of money for A.L.S. More than $30 million has gone to the cause since these challenges began being issued in June of this year, including over $8 million in a single day. This is an extremely debilitating condition which plagues more that 30,000 Americans.
I am honored to accept this challenge, and even more honored to contribute what I can to this cause. Now, the fun part begins, and that’s deciding who I would like to extend my three challenges to.
