The internet has been buzzing lately about the ALS Icebucket Challenge and Katee has stepped up and taken the challenge!
Katee accepted the challenge in honor of writer, Scott Lew, who wrote last year’s Sexy Evil Genius film that Katee not only starred in but also co-produced. Scott has been living with ALS for 11 years now.
Now, Katee is challenging her Sexy Evil Genius co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg & Harold Perrineau via Twitter to take the challenge as well.
For those of you who may be wondering what the ALS Icebucket Challenge is:
The challenge requires nominated participants to have a bucket of ice water poured on their head. One common stipulation gives 24-hours to complete the mission from the time they are nominated and if they don’t complete the dare they have to donate $100 to charity (in this case, ALS).
As of Sunday, August 17, 2014, The ALS Association has received $13.3 million in donations compared to $1.7 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 17). These donations have come from existing donors and 259,505 new donors to The Association.
So what are you waiting for? Challenge your friends, family, colleagues or even celebrities to take part in the ALS Icebucket Challenge and help fight Lou Gehrig’s Disease!
