Love it or hate it, the ice bucket challenge is EVERYWHERE! And it's for a really great cause, to raise awareness for a very deserving cause.  If you have never heard of ALS before I urge you to find out more about this horrible disease here.  But Charlie Sheen's ice bucket video is absolutely a game changer!

Typically when Charlie Sheen makes headlines it isn't usually for something positive haha however this will definitely make you see him in a totally different light!

I first heard of ALS when I was doing some research on one of my favorite guitarists Jason Becker.  He was only 20 years old when he was diagnosed and even though it has taken away his ability to play guitar, he still composes music.  Another famous person who suffers from ALS is Stephen Hawking, who I'm sure you've heard of.

ALS is alternatively called "Lou Gehrig" disease after the major league baseball player who suffered from ALS.  The horrible thing about this disease is while your nervous system is shutting down and you become increasingly unable to do things, your mind stays fully intact leaving you completely trapped inside your own body.

Anyways regardless of what your thoughts are, I personally think the ice bucket challenge has done way more good then harm, and if it's brought a very worthy cause to light then hey, more power to the people dumping ice water on themselves!

Check out what Charlie Sheen did!
