You have probably seen a few celebrities and personalities getting wet with buckets of ice water on social media. If you don’t know what it is about, we have the scoop.
In July, a non-profit organization The ALS Association, kicked off a campaign to help raise money for Lou Gehrig’s Disease research. ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It is also called Lou Gehrig’s Disease
If you are dared, you have two options – get wet with a bucket filled with ice water and nominate 3 more people to do the same or you can donate to the ALS charity of your choice. So far, so good $10 million has been raised.
Celebrities and personalities that have participated include Oprah, Kerry Washington, Kevin Hart, Justin Timberlake, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Tyler Perry.
And Dencia has joined. After getting wet on her Range Rover, she nominated the BellaNaija team, Genevieve Nnaji, 2Face Idibia, D’banj, Waje, Tiwa Savage, Didier Drogba, Wizkid, and Yvonne Nelson.
