Please Don’t Challenge Me…….I’m Challenged Enough!

Okay…..here’s my rant of the day…..

What’s up with the Ice Bucket Challenge? I know it’s supposed to be for a good cause and all, but really, is it just another good cause gone awry (viral stupid)?

If you want to give to ALS give to ALS, it is a horrible disease…..you just don’t have to show off on social media, do you? It started off harmlessly enough I’m sure but like all things that have run their course it’s now just plain stupid….all the “kids” are doing it and posting it on FaceBook and I’m sure (wink wink) they are donating to ALS, don’t you?

So please, do NOT NOMINATE me nor challenge me, if I choose to donate to ALS or Breast Cancer or whatever other great cause moves me I will without telling anyone what I’m doing, thank you very much!

I’m sorry if I sound so hardened, I just get so sick and tired of all this social media hype and everyone running around thinking they’re cool partaking in it…..it is great if ALS gets all the money they’ve been promised from this media blitz, I’ve heard it’s somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million. That’s awesome. I just think it’s gotten kind of stupid at this point to still be pouring ice buckets over heads, just donate already. We get it, you want to be part of the “in” crowd but maybe that’s just the bitch in me!

    Slack-tivism. People can LOOK like they’re doing something without actually doing anything of consequence thanks to social media.
