The ice bucket thing left a bad taste in my mouth. It's all about self promotion rather than helping people.

It's not about awareness, it's about what's trendy and cool, and it's heartbreaking!

As long as celebrities do it, it's a must, and it's sad that most people that do the challenge don't even bother to even say that it's for ALS! It's such a superficial trend, as always!

Do you think that people care about ALS either? I got the feeling that it has been a trend to get a load of ice water in order to 1. get famous via YouTube 2. have fun.
But back to topic: I like your picture! It's very sad and well-created.

My cousin died of ALS and I think we need to spend more on other diseases

This is both funny... and yet so sad. Very few things get me to feel that.

Congrats, the message came clear and I give praise to you for it.

I agree, but both diesases are deadly. The only thing is Ebola isn't getting enough attention.

True that man! its all about priority right now and which one required immediate solution.
bloxxman978's avatar
Yup. I would probably even say that ALS is getting a little too much attention.

Wonder how ebola gonna raise awareness. Rather than stories...It may not look like it but people are just gonna skip over the tragic..and into something else.

as far as i know,for the last 40 years, there are no cure, no treatment and a single charitable organization specialize for Ebola. I think right now, its all about empathy, we need to figure out
why Africans get less attention that anybody else in the world, yet most of dangerous viral disease came from Africa, and it seems quarantine is the only answer people want to come up with.

Well right now we have a civil war and people have become numb to things in africa..How many advertisments you see about africa in danger? It may be true but people become numb, if it was popularized in awarness by a group of celebrities it would start but right now..I dont know.
