ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

It has been 24 hours since I was nominated for the Ice challenge. I have been at work the last two days with only 4 hours of sleep in between so I decided that I was not going to do the challenge but instead donate money to charity. I am NOT donating to ALSA, but instead chose a charity of my choice. I did do some research on ALS however before making my final decision but feel that their prayers are being answered by the hundreds and thousands possibly millions of people who have/still are donating to them. So I am taking this time to donate to another charity in which I think could do with a bit of help. And to others who have been nominated but weren’t too delighted about pouring ice over their heads, its never too late to donate! 😉 Even if you do not want to donate to ALS, now is the time to donate to a charity that you are concerned about! Fight for a cause or campaign! Have you ever considered donating to a charity before? whether it was to stop animal cruelty or help some kids over in Africa, this is OUR time!

 

ALS Ice bucket challenge RSPCA

 

The charity I am donating to is RSPCA. To those of you who have never heard of RSPCA before, it stands for the “Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals”, an Australian charity which aims to improve the life of animals.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord which leads to patients being paralysed and eventually death. The Ice Bucket Challenge was originally a campaign started by ALS Association where you can read up more about the disease and donate. If anything were to convince you to donate then it would be watching this video here on another ALS research company’s website.
 
Some other charities to consider:

The Water Project and Charity Water since we are undoubtedly using more water and ice in the last few months due to the popular challenge.

Help out children living in poverty at World Vision or support human rights for all at Amnesty International.

I have recently seen this video of an elephant crying when a team that actively works on protecting wildlife WildLife SOS saved the majestic animal named “Raju” on a rescue mission.

If you don’t have money to donate you can still help out by:

Donating blood to your local donor centre or volunteering your time at animal shelters. Cheers guys and happy donating!

Note: If you live in Australia, All donations over $2 are TAX REFUNDABLE!
