Jacks Gets Wet for ALS

As we all know there's a really fun Ice Bucket Challenge phenomena happening right now everywhere - friends, family, work colleagues, celebrities and businesses are challenging each other to dump ice water on their heads to help raise money and awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Sounds fun. It is fun! I've been hearing arguments that the people participating don't know very much about the disease - even if that was the case, what's the harm in that and isn't that the idea of creating awareness? I don't know anyone personally with ALS but two friends of mine do, and from what I know of these two individuals with the disease they're very proud people and would likely love that others are having fun while they raise money to help. Yesterday I dropped by Jack Astors Kanata to help them celebrate the management team (including my daughter Claire) getting soaked by their staff/peeps who raised $750.00 for the privilege of dumping ice water on them. Yesterday money was raised, awareness was raised and so was Jack Astors team spirit! A pretty awesome equation in my opinion! :)  http://www.als.ca/en/donate
