Everyone’s Facebook feed has no doubt been littered with videos of their friends dumping buckets of ice water over their heads. The reason behind the icy shock is to raise funds and awareness about ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Participants call out their friends (or enemies?) on the Internet, declaring that they either donate $100 to the ALS Association or dump a bucket of ice water over their heads within 24 hours. And they most post their proof on social media; no cheating!

Plenty of celebrities have risen to the challenge. Below you’ll find videos and links to some of their Ice Bucket Challenge videos.

So far, more than 1 million ice bucket challenge-related videos have been shared on Facebook, and more than $13 million dollars have been donated to the ALS Association since the craze began. Many people who have done the challenge also donated money to the cause.

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
