ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Dallas Maids - ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Ice Bucket Challenge in front of the Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Thanks to my brother in law, Alex, for nominating me for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, an admirable meme promoting awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encouraging donations for researching a cure. I gladly accept his nomination with twin buckets in front of the Twin Towers.

ALS, or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a disease that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. These nerves control the muscles that we use to move, speak, eat, and breathe.

If someone has ALS, their nerves die gradually. Their muscles will get weaker and weaker and they won’t be able to control them with precision.

Over time, people with ALS find it harder to do everyday activities. According to the ALS Association, “ALS robs people of the ability to walk, talk and eventually breathe.”

Right now, there is no cure for ALS, and it eventually leads to paralysis. This takes a tremendous toll on people’s physical and mental health and those around them suffer as well.

We all know about the ALS ice bucket challenge. It went viral and its positive outcome is fantastic. It has spread awareness and encourages people to donate. Most importantly, it has made us empathize and care for people with this condition.

In return I nominate:

1) Debbie Sardone of Cleaning For A Reason (

2) Gary Goranson of House Cleaning Biz 101 (

Both of you have helped so many others. Now, I’m happy to give you a chance to help a more by promoting awareness for this terrible disease. The gauntlet has been thrown, you have 24 hours…

P.S.S. If you want to learn more from ALS and/or donate to this cause, please check the The ALS Association website.
