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.
