“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

This, people. Misleading intro aside, THIS is why the Ice Bucket Challenge exists. To help people with ALS and to research a cure.
Don’t use the Ice Bucket challenge as just another ‘haha this is fun to do’. Use it to raise awareness for ALS.

Going to bed fairly early today.

Though I already have stayed awake longer than planned. >_<

Sorry, I got your point, I was just trying to look on the bright side. I do agree with you, it’s not something to have fun doing and getting attention for doing it. It’s there to raise awareness. Or at least donate if you’re going to do it.

Precisely, my friend.

So please, anyone who follows me and thought it’d be ‘fun’ to do the Ice Bucket Challenge?

Go ahead- but PLEASE RAISE AWARENESS FOR ALS WHILE DOING SO.

Well, at least due to its hype, it’s raised millions of dollars apparently…

You’re mistaking my point. I’m totally glad for the organization that the fact that it GOT hyped raised so much money..

But it has SINCE devolved to just some kind of meme. This ISN’T helping anymore. People aren’t even mentioning the disease.. It’s just become a dare between friends.

Even if people are doing it for fun, at least mention the disease. It’s THREE LETTERS. But most of them just don’t even refer to it. And THAT is what bothers me.

Bit disappointed with all the recent ‘Ice Bucket challenges’..

As if it has become a hype to do some kinda challenge, instead of.. y’know.. it’s actual purpose..

That is, bringing awareness to ALS. Which is precisely what it actually started as. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Motor Neurone Disorder (MND), aka Lou Gehrig’s disease.

If you do the Ice Bucket Challenge, have the decency to actually use it to raise awareness. It’s not meant to be some hype thing, like the cinnamon challenge. :/

So, not sure how many people have heard about this already, but…

I’m looking forward to this! :D

I’m not. It looks like they just reskinned some enemies, added a few more animations.. I bet ‘New Hades’ is pretty much the same as Stilwater, AGAIN..

…and yet, I know I’m going to throw my money at it, just like I probably will with Borderlands. :|
