The Ice Bucket Challenge

In recent days I have seen photos of celebrities taking what they call the "ice bucket challenge".  I didn't know what it was all about.  Last night, though, my nieces educated me.  It seems a person "nominates" another person to do the challenge.  Either they have a bucket of ice water dumped over their head or they donate $100 for the ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) fund.

Aubrey had been nominated by a friend from school.  It seems you have to do this within 24 hours of being nominated.  So, after dinner last night she took the challenge.  Her sister Molly volunteered to dump the ice water on her.  Here are the photos:

Aubrey looks like she's saying "I dare you!"

As part of the ritual, the dumpee nominates another person.  So Aubrey immediately nominated the oldest sister Sarah.  Here is Sarah's turn:

Sarah nominated some friends on her gymnastics team.  I'm not sure how Molly escaped after dumping the bucket on both of her sisters.

This is very popular in Australia too - world-wide it seems.
