Just call me the bandwagon jumperoo

Bonus post because who wants to waste a normal day's post on this I mean aren't we all totally sick of these videos? I know I am. So annoying. Just donate, right? Eh, who cares. It was like 95 degrees out and what's better than a bucket of ice and water on a (semi) hot day?

I know some people are up in arms because the celebrities have more money than they are donating, or because people are doing this instead of donating, or because stem cell research causes abortions.. wait, what? Um, ok.


I like donating. I always donate to cancer foundations (skin + childrens) because they hold a special place in my heart. Donating to the ALS Association is a good cause - donating is almost always a good cause. You don't have to. You don't have to donate, you don't have to have an ice shower, you don't even have to watch my video.

Coming to you from the bandwagon o joy.


But this is probably the closest I'll ever get to doing a vlog. Image Map

  1. At first I was a little like "ice bucket is the new harlem shake" but I'm excited that people actually are opening up their wallets and donating.

  14. Like everyone else, I love your accent! As annoyed as I get seeing video after video I love what it has done to create awareness for ALS. We lost my uncle to this horrible disease a few years ago and I will admit I knew nothing about it (just like most people). I love that in just a couple of months over 1 million dollars has been raised not to mention the heightened awareness it's created. Great job lovebug!

  16. This is awesome! I actually like watching the videos, they're fun - and I'm impressed that so many people are doing it.

  17. So adorable! Like that you called it the bandwagon but also acknowledge that it does actually spread awareness. I'm sure the same people complaining have also said "Seriously what is ALS anyway?" and as a result at the very least googled it. Bravo girlfriend!
