I took the Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise awareness for ALS.  ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a motor neuron disease.  In addition to donating to ALS, we’re also donating to CODR (Casa de Orientación y Desarrollo Real).

Ice Bucket Challenge


The ice water was refreshing in the Texas heat!

Emily and I are donating money to both ALS and CODR.  CODR is a group home for at-risk female students so they can attend university in a safe environment.  Emily volunteered at CODR in the Dominican Republic.

We were nominated by Mommy Points and now we’re inviting a few fellow miles & points bloggers to take the ALS ice bucket challenge!

Bottom Line

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a fun way to raise awareness about ALS.  And beat the Texas heat!

Please share the video to spread the word, but more importantly, share your generosity!

I do trust all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post. eekgdakeeddd

Donations are nice but the spirit here is weak. Use more water and a bigger bucket.

Way to go! Your donations are a blessing to many! And, I agree, so fun to hear your voices. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, you two!

It was also nice to hear your voices (a different side that can’t be captured in travel pictures) and learn that I’ve been mispronouncing Darius for years.

Redo with bigger bucket and more water.
