Wasn't it each? And all five of them we're there? But anyway, the point is that no one is really explaining what ALS is or telling you how to donate beforehand, just be logical to give a little explanation you know

It didn't raise awareness for me. I saw all these ice bucket videos, and I finally had to google what the ice bucket challenge was. Even then, they all said "to raise awareness for ALS."
Ok... what's ALS? That's a whole nother google search.

If I have to do research to figure out what you're promoting awareness for, you're doing a crappy job at raising awareness.

So, basically what you're saying is, because of the ice bucket challenge intriguing you, you researched and found out what ALS is, so now you are....wait for it...

AWARE!

User avatar #25 to #22 - godtherapist (08/20/2014) [-]
Lou Gehrig's Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

It is what Stephen Hawking has.

A disease only 4 out of 100,000 people have, totaling less than 30,000 people in the US, 4000 in the UK, and a palsy 1200 in Australia. But somehow it's a bigger deal than cancer, aids, diabetes, etc, because like all fads celebrities got involved.
User avatar #151 to #44 - misterymisterman (08/20/2014) [-]
You're right! And there have never been any publicity stunts designed to raise money for those diseases! Not once has anyone, say, organised an annual charity marathon in support of cancer! There aren't any annual awareness events, like a World Aids Day or World Diabetes Day! Those bastards with Lou Gehrig's Disease don't deserve help when these unknown, low-profile diseases are affecting so many people behind the scenes!

I'm actually still not sure what ALS is. I know the ice bucket challenge is promoting awareness for it, and I may have seen it spelled out once, but I still don't know what it is.
User avatar #23 to #21 - steamwhistler (08/20/2014) [-]
Well, I'm just saying this ice bucket thing gets people interested. The point is to raise awareness, if it's getting people interested enough to talk about it or do research to find out more information about it, then I'd have to say it's doing it's job. I'm sure there's a lot more people out there no that know what ALS is because of this. So what if they had to look it up? It's really not that difficult to type three letters into Google.

I'm pretty sure about 90% of the people that I saw do it thought it was just a trend and not for any form of charity
User avatar #46 - gobnick (08/20/2014) [-]
I actually had a catholic friend on facebook who seemed to be gay for a while, but then "found jesus", who legitimately posted the first world problems meme with the caption "I wanted to do the ice bucket challenge for ALS awareness, but then I found out the majority of proceeds went to fetal stem cell research".....I really don't see the problem here....and yes i used the past tense correctly for those wondering
#59 to #46 - apurpleliger (08/20/2014) [-]
No, no, it's okay. Most of the Catholic kids I've seen do the challenge didn't even know about the donating part, so they didn't go against their beliefs.
User avatar #62 to #59 - gobnick (08/20/2014) [-]
I just don't understand though, I imagine the fetuses they use are either:
1. dead, so there's nothing but good coming from that (although in thought, dead fetuses wouldn't produce viable cells i think_
2. aborted/donated anyway, there's nothing they can do to keep people from giving them the supplies, so why are they targeted?
if someone doesn't want the ******* thing anyway, why are people so against using what would be useless for a cause that actually improves the quality of life for currently living people on the planet? is it because it shows that there is less of a god? i don't see how, if anything they could take it as god giving us the greatest gift ever with our intelligence and using it to the utmost, not to mention resourcefulness....
why all the hatred towards something that is taking something that catholics don't like, and making something good of it? shouldn't it be that there are people doing this stuff anyway? it's like destroying the chariot but leaving the horses. or however that phrase works.
User avatar #184 to #62 - incoming (08/20/2014) [-]
I can't speak for any religions on the matter but, this is a hypothetical possibility to help explain. IF a cure was found using stem cells, more would be required to produce enough of the cure and it would likely make others realize how much stem cells could benefit medical research. The greater demand could end up encouraging abortions or even create incentives to have an abortion for the purpose of donating the stem cells.

IMO stem cell research is a good thing. Better to make use of the fetus to save lives than for it to have been entirely wasted. Sure the baby could have been the next Einstein, but since it can't be at least it could help a living Einstein do some good for the world.
#186 to #62 - apurpleliger (08/20/2014) [-]
I'm not an expert on the subject of stem cell research, but the general Catholic view is that life should be chosen no matter what. I'm not sure how the fetal stem cells come about, but if they're intentionally taken from a fetus that could have survived otherwise, or if the fetus is created for the purpose of providing stem cells, it goes against that belief. I think it's something like they use artificial insemination to create the fetuses, and then they discard the ones that aren't suitable? I think it fits somewhere in between the doctrines against abortion and the doctrines against birth control. Again, I don't really know much about the stem cell research.

One thing I do know is that the Catholic church supports adult stem cell research, just not fetal stem cell research.

Yeah I had a catholic friend do the challenge then later he made a status like," I'm so sorry I didn't know what it was about, I'm actually against stem cell research blah blah".

I'm sure this was started with good intentions, but as far as I can tell from my facebook feed, douchebags just use this as an excuse to pose with their shirts off and have absolutely no idea what it's about. I guess if it is helping though, we're just using these douchebags' egos to our advantage to spread the trend, so I can't be too angry.

I hate people respond to the criticism of by saying "but it's raising awareness" awareness does absolutely jack **** to help cure diseases just about everyone has been aware of cancer for years but it's still around awareness doesn't do jack **** so stop pretending you give a **** about ALS because you want to get facebook likes unless you actually donate you're not doing jack ****
User avatar #31 to #29 - TwiztidNinja (08/20/2014) [-]
Raising awareness means more people actually know about the disease and the research going into stopping it, meaning more money will donate money to the research and better research can be done.

yes me being aware of breast cancer does jack **** for an example, But that does not mean it is not helping the research, by me you and every other cunt under the sun knowing about the research a hell of a lot more money is going towards finding a way to help people with breast cancer.

Do you get my point?

basically you are not the only person on the planet champ, there are 7 billion of us here.
#85 to #31 - xxmemosxx (08/20/2014) [-]
Did you know that most other treatments and research into other cancers are actually being hurt by "breast cancer awareness"... Guess what? People are very aware of breast cancer, time to start helping all of the other cancers that just get sidelined
#132 to #31 - JustintheWaysian ONLINE (08/20/2014) [-]
Probably what bothers me most about the bucket challenge is that, if there was bucket challenge for ALS, people would not have donated or spread awareness. Why do people need a trendy social activity to do what's good? I know I know, people like to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves, and by participating, they are "social" and part of a "social movement", but fundamentally I still think it's dumb that people won't spread awareness and donate just from the goodness of their heart.

That said, I'm not dismissing the amount of money that has been raised so far, nor am I saying that the ends do not justify the means. I just find it saddening that people need trendy social activities and social movements to do good things instead of just doing them for goodness sake

In the near distant future, a new trend will occur.   
   
A video on facebook titled "The suicide challenge" is posted by a teenage girl. A mother, proud yet in despair, types out the description on her daughter's post as follows: "Greg, martha, and dan, i choose you! Raise awareness for suicide, and donate 100 dollars to the suicide prevention agency."   
And just like that, the videos come flooding in like a wave. Children, teens, and adults alike committing suicide by the minute, telling their family to post on behalf of them. Each post only contains  three tags.    
Facebook tries to remove them as fast as they come in, but within two days, a majority of facebook's staff commits suicide.   
Nothing is left to stop the trend. It briefly pauses as Justin Bieber takes the challenge, but these videos quickly rise once more.    
Exactly one week from the original video, 75% of the world's population will have committed suicide.    
But hey, at least they're helping to prevent it.
