Recently the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has blown up across all platforms of social media. People from all over the world are dumping ice cold water over their heads to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS). This life threatening disease affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The most recent celebrity to partake in this awareness challenge is the supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
Gisele Bündchen, who Forbes recently dubbed the world's top-earning model for the eighth year in the row, uploaded a video of her pouring ice water over her head on Instagram. She captioned the photo "My Uncle Milton and my dear friend Charlene's mom lost their fight to ALS (http://www.alsa.org/about-als/what-is-als.html). In their honor and all of the families that are affected by ALS, I'm donating money and also accepting the ice bucket challenge. I am challenging Anna Wintour, @MarioTestino and @Shakira. #IceBucketChallenge."
Check out the video for yourself. Also, all of us here at World Swimsuit challenge YOU to donate and partake in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS. Remember that any contribution helps!
