The Mike The Fanboy Family Does The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

As I’m sure you all know, the Ice Bucket Challenge is sweeping the nation. To date it’s raised almost 80 million dollars to help fight ALS.

ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons  die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost.

To raise awareness, the ALS Association created the Ice Bucket Challenge. If you are challenged the idea is, you’re supposed to donate $100 to get out of taking a bucket of ice water and dousing yourself. If you do the challenge it’s encouraged to still donate $10.

Usually the challenges are issued by a friend or family member doing the challenge.

In my case, I was challenged by the awesome and sexy Ms. Lindsay from I Am Not A who takes filming locations expertise to a new level.

Lindsay issued the challenge below to me.

Now, I of course, don’t generally shrink from any challenge. I froze my butt off, and apparently when I get doused by freezing cold water, I yelp out the name of indie movie goddesses everywhere.

Sigh, only me. So I responded by issuing some challenges of my own.

As you can see, I issued the challenges to all the MTF Family members and many of them decided that the ice bucket challenge call would be answered!

And let me tell you, I didn’t think people could be so adorable getting doused with buckets of freezing cold water, but they are.

First up, is Awesome Anushika who go doused by a couple friends…

Then Billy Beer who said, “Should I shower and shave for this? Nah!! It’s water, I can just use it to hose off! That’s what people in Michigan do!”

Ace who thinks that his magical hoodie can protect him from all kinds of things, including a bucket of ice water.

Here’s a hint… It can’t. But at least we know it’s getting washed!

And Suddenly Susan, who added a little spicey hotness to the cold freezing water by including one Mr. Chris Pratt.

He can warm anyone’s bucket let me tell you!

And finally The Novel Strumpet who looks amazing in her video! Oh La La!

I’m telling you it was such a kick to see you all participate, Erica sent hers as well, I just couldn’t get it up here. Thanks guys again, It’s great to see you guys throw yourselves in for a good cause.

Please check out the ALS website for information on how you can help raise awareness for the disease and make a donation yourself.

Until next time kids…
