Carrie-Lynn Macleod and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Saturday, 23 August 2014, 08:55:17 PM
Well...I was nominated by my best friend in Costa Rica Eugenia Echeverria Gaspar to partake in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. My Son Patrick thought it was so funny to see her son Richie dump water on his Mother's head. I thought I could get away with just writing a cheque here in Windsor, Ontario to the ALS Society of Canada and be done with it.
Boy was I wrong! My son Patrick went straight to the fridge and started filling a bucket with ice. I said no Patrick, Mommy has decided to write a cheque instead. His eyes welled up with tears and I knew I was in for some cold water on my head and boy was it cold!!
ALS is a horrible scary disease which no one is too interested in talking about let alone opening their wallet for. This crazy campaign is not well received by all and is becoming a little redundant, however; it sure has raised a lot of money for this forgotten and unpopular charity. I chose to nominate Richie Gaspar and Patrick Macleod to partake in the Ice Bucket Challenge. Patrick chose Richie my best friends son as well. We had a lot of laughs doing this.
