The challenge involves dumping a bucket of ice water on your head, generally in conjunction with donating to a charity that promotes awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It started as a trend on Facebook and Instagram.

It has led to a significant spike in both funds raised for ALS-related organizations and awareness of ALS.

Since July 29, more than 70,000 new donors have donated money, according to the ALS Association.
