Save water and still do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, started by Pete Frates, is something of a viral sensation on the internet right now, but one group of friends has turned the tables completely around and wants to get the word out on another issue at hand.

In Trevor Neuhoff's video, he and two friends show other ways in order to bring awareness to the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) disease, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. They show how easy it is to bring awareness to an already troubling issue in the world, access to fresh, drinkable water sources.

Access to fresh drinking water is something that has been an issue worldwide for quite sometime. The Water.org campaign offers solutions to this worldwide epidemic that's been getting better, but still needs to be addressed. Along with water issues in some places, California is currently in the middle of a drought too. Matt Damon showed how to save water and still do the Ice Bucket Challenge in the process, along with others that recognize the water crisis too.

Using ice water on the Ice Bucket Challenge is a great way to get the word out about ALS research, but donating to the cause is just as effective. When you do donate to the research of the ALS, you can also donate to the water crisis through Water.org. Check out the links below in order to donate to both causes and help get the word out about ALS and fresh drinking water issues throughout the world. While you're at it, donate to the Pete Frates Fund, as well.
