So let me get this straight, famous and rich people are pouring icy water on themselves to increase awareness of some RARE disease that’s responsible for 2 death per hundred thousand population annually?!!
So those ”mature” influential people who are considered as role models for a lot of people specially kids and youth are making this irresponsible act of wasting CLEAN water!!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!
Ever heard that the planet is suffering from water shortage?
Do you know that every 21 seconds a child die from a water related diseases?
Do you know that 780 million people lack access to clean water that’s more than 2.5 times of US population that’s approximately one in nine.
Do you know that women spend more than 200 million hours a day collecting water?!
This whole challenge sickens me because I know how it feel to suffer from water shortage, during my life in the refuges we had to live with a very limited amount of clean water that we usually kept for my baby brother.
It saddens me that these challenges are coming from iconic people that I respect.
There are many different sundry ways to increase awareness over any cause without wasting natural resources.
If every one of those people showed up in a video saying a fact about ALS, it would have been better. Because actually people just watch the video of those people and laugh they don’t go search about ALS.
Funny thing, we in Gaza are playing ”Bombs bucket challenge” , it’s pretty much the same however all you need for this challenge is a F 16 plane.
You sit in your house with your family and BOOM the pilot of the F 16 drops the bombs’ ”bucket” which is a very large one it ranges from 250 Kg. to 1 ton.
If you died then you pass the challenge if you survived then you have to donate for people who had lost their beloved ones and houses in the bombs bucket challenges, it’s really simple.
I actually respect the fact that all those different celebrities united together to spread awareness but I just have issues with the ”mean” they used. I wish they will continue spreading awareness about another IMPORTANT causes .
Finally, I challenge each one of whom did the ice bucket challenge to, NO not a bomb bucket challenge neither a stone and sand bucket challenge but ”Peace bucket challenge”.
Make a video in which you say “stop the war on Gaza”, ”stop killing the civilians in Gaza” or anything you choose to increase awareness of our suffering here in Gaza or any other place around the world, let’s try to control things that are in our reach, things human do, not disease or things that we have no control over it Or maybe need a lot of time to control. We can make it a better world for all if we want to.
