The Ice Bucket Challenge has only been around for a couple of weeks, but the tech world is already wet and cold. The challenge was created at the end of July by Pete Frates in attempt to raise money and awareness for ALS. It’s a very simple idea that has taken the world by storm. First, someone will be challenged to dump a bucket of ice water on themselves within 24 hours, or donate $100 to the ALS Association. Once they complete the challenge they can then nominate other people to do it, and the cycle continues.
Everyone from Martha Stewart to Aaron Rodgers has participated in the challenge, including a growing amount of tech leaders. So far the ALS Association has raised over $4 million in just a couple short weeks. We love a good cause, especially when it results in some of our favorite tech leaders getting soaking wet.
