RANT: I’m getting a bit annoyed with the #icebucketchallenge haters. Before this challenge, the most I knew about ALS was the name. That was it. The videos have prompted me to look up more information (which was one of the primary intentions, was it not?)
For those “haters,” stop assuming to know anything and everything. It’s pretentious, arrogant, and unbecoming. You don’t know whether or not the person has donated to the charity. From what I can tell, the majority have. Some even state clearly they have…but you have those idiots (yes, idiots) wanting to sound big and righteous. “They didn’t donate. This is stupid. This does nothing. Shut up and donate instead.” Etc., etc.
Open up your ears, and your eyes. Look at the facts. This time last year, the foundation made a little over $1 million. In the past few weeks, they have managed to raise more than $4 million.
How do I know that? Because I listen, and I pay attention.
Maybe you should too.
