Tweet The ice bucket challenge is making waves across the world and for a good reason. The donations from these individuals go toward the research of ALS. These seemingly silly antics have raised over $22 million to fight this disease. However most people do not know the reality of it. After taking the ice bucket challenge, Anthony shows you a bit more of how it feels to live with this every day. Videos starts right after his challenge. Rewind if you want to see it.
#ALSicebucketchallenge is to raise awareness for ALS / MND / Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Tweet Warning: This video is entirely in Swedish, so you might want to take advantage of the dark magic that is YouTube’s closed caption translation service. However, while it might enhance your enjoyment of the video, it’s by no means a requirement. The reality is that you don’t need a translator to appreciate two guys trying to bake a cake while strapped to a machine that makes your muscles contract. This isn’t the first time Caffeine Creations tried to perform culinary magic while demonstrating the effects of electrotherapy, but it’s still incredibly entertaining to witness. The duo attempts to make a traditional “midsummer cake” (complete with fermented herring!), with the key word being “attempt.” It turns out that it’s not easy to cook things when you’re not in control of your limbs. It is easy to laugh at, though, and that’s exactly what I did. Sometimes funny videos can get you to start thinking about stuff you wouldn't normally think of. Maybe it's Parkinson's disease this time? Donate to Parkinson's disease here.
Tweet Here is a favorite Halloween thriller from your friends at AXE. Even the walking dead come out smelling great with the AXE Effect in play. You gore and horror buffs, see if you can catch all the references.
Tweet Southern New Hampshire University understands and respects the enormous sacrifice our veterans, military servicemembers and their families have made and continue to make on behalf of our country. SNHU are staunch supporters of our military population, providing military academic advisors for our students who offer a true sense of support and understanding, because they have been there themselves. To show their appreciation, SNHU went around the world to make surprise diploma deliveries to members of our military community that couldn’t attend graduation. With the help of their friends and family, SNHU facilitated surprise diploma deliveries to a Marine spouse at her husband’s promotion party, an Army veteran at his office on Fort Bragg in North Carolina, an active-duty Sailor on base in Singapore, and a veteran’s wife, living in San Diego, Calif. To find out more about how SNHU supports the military, please visit http://bit.ly/1pSlVX8 To show your appreciation to our military population, simply Tweet with the hashtag #SNHUsalute
Tweet #ShakeYourPower brings clean energy to places in the world without electricity through the power of music Sudha Kheterpal, best know as the percussionist from South London band Faithless, is launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise £50,000 for #ShakeYourPower project. In places like Kenya, where 75% of the population live without access to electricity, having the ability to read at night or charge up a mobile phone gives people the chance of a better education and also access to services like the revolutionary mobile phone banking system, M-PESA. #ShakeYourPower, is about bringing clean energy to places in the world without electricity, through the medium of music. For the last year, Sudha has been developing a musical instrument, a prototype percussion shaker called SPARK, which converts the energy from shaking it, into electricity. Users can then plug in a light or charge up a mobile telephone. Make a pledge now! Click here
