Every few months, a new charity organization pops up and gives people something to research and donate to. Everyone with access to social media knows what the current cause is:
The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS awareness.
ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and is often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” It is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerves in the brain and spinal chord, and typically results in paralysis and death.
Recently, a lot of social media savvy people from all over the world have been participating in the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness. Here are some of the funniest challenges, and how international shipping companies can help you contribute to the charity of your choice!
1. George W. Bush
The former president originally decided that he would simply donate to the cause rather than participate in the challenge. However, ice water was still dumped on him by his wife and former first lady, Laura Bush.
With international shipping services, you can donate to a cause of your choosing all over the world. Shipping personal belongings and household goods to any country in the world can help numerous charity organizations and a huge amount of people. K International Transport can help you make a difference!
2. Bill Gates
Bill Gates was nominated by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, and decided that he would try to out-do Zuckerberg. So he constructed a contraption to soak him in ice water to raise awareness for ALS.

This NHL player went all out in the ice water challenge. He hired a helicopter to fly above him, and dump ice water on him. Despite the expensive stunt, he also donated $1000 to the ALS foundation.
