Richa Gangopadhyay On Ice Bucket Challenge
On the TwitLonger, Richa wrote: Hey ALS Ice bucket challenge people. It ruffles me to see so many people pouring ice water over their heads without knowing why they're doing it. While it is fun and entertaining to see such videos go viral around the world, it would be great if you educated yourself on the background of the cause.
I have to believe that this challenge has successfully raised awareness of ALS. Now the next step is on us to actually educate ourselves on the disease and, if you can, donate to helping find a cure and provide assistance for those currently suffering from it (remember, even a little goes a long way)
Some of you are saying it's just "one bucket", but one bucket of water is a shower for two in many countries, one bucket of water is used for drinking and cooking, and some people have to walk miles for just one bucket of water. Think about it. It would be great if you could support 2 causes at once. Save water, Raise Awareness, and Donate.
