some are amused with it, some others are possibly annoyed with it, but most of you are familiar with it, the so called ALS ice bucket challenge, which is following you not only all over the social networks such as Facebook or Instagram but also all over the media in television and other reports.
For those who haven't heard about it at all here is a little explanation:
So, the background and main reason of the ice bucket challenge is to raise money and fight against the A(myotrophic)L(ateral)S(clerosis) disease.
The procedure works the following way: If you get nominated for the ice bucket challenge you have to act within 24 hours and either donate or film yourself making the ice bucket challenge and nominate three other people. The best way to spread the word about this and reach as many people as possible is, of course, the internet or furthermore social networks.
What is most criticized most about the videos is the self-aggrendizement of the people illustrating themselves in the videos. Easily it can be thought that the main reason is forgotten. However, I have to disagree with this criticism since firstly many people film themselves donating and secondly that many people do both refering to the donation in their videos. So you can't generalize this criticism.
The best thing about this way of fighting a sickness is that it combines fun with charity and connects people all over the world. The ice bucket challenge reaches everyone also famous people. My most favorite celebrity-challenges were those of Katsuhiro Harada, Victoria Beckham and Garik Papoyan.
And among all these people the challenge has also reached me. And naturally I have done both. Watch my videos below:
My conclusion is that the water was rather refreshing than cold and I felt great afterwards especially behind the background why I did it.
As a blogger from Germany and German representative I can as well suggest you to transfer money to the following direction because ALS is everywhere and needs to be fought everywhere:
Kasse der Charite

Internationally you can still donate on www.alsa.org.
As you saw I have chosen a total Romwe outfit for my challenge as charity with style.
