It's for people who want special recognition for giving to charity. Shut your damn piehole and give money to ALS without making a spectacle of yourself. You aren't special just because you dumped cold water on your head.

Because it's annoying and clogging up my social media. You people want a cookie?

I agree. It is ridiculous and annoying.

Well who put bitchy in your cereal this morning?

Why does it matter if they want to make a fool out of themselves? It doesn't affect you if you don't want to do it.

OK. My 13 year old and all of her 8th grade friends are having a ball doing it. They have so many Facebook friends that every hour someone new gets nominated.

It's a gimmick that's raised $40 million+ and made some rather entertaining short videos. Could be worse.

They raised a huge amount of money and yes the ice water might be gimmicky but if it works it works. If people just gave to charity it would not raise nearly as much money nor would people be as aware of als. If op doesn't like it she doesn't have to participate but don't be a scrooge.

I didn't ask for a cookie or anything else, I haven't done it, I've just enjoyed watching several of them. 

The Foo Fighters' was glorious and fun. 

Benedict Cumberbatch's and Tom Hiddleston's were hot, and Joss Whedon took an entire ice chest like a champ and was still as pithy as ever afterward.
