ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE: 5 things moms should know about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

gates ice bucket challenge

( – In a must see video, Microsoft founder Bill Gates accepts Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. But in doing so, Gates up the ante. He actually used his engineering skills to build the device to dump the ice bucket. Each dumpee write a check to fund research on ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

As a parent, this is thrilling because it brings science, math and other elements into the “cool factor” so I’m asking parents to join me in the MOMS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE to help raise money assist our members in buying school clothes for kids or pay book rental fees or repair their car so that the single mom can continue to provide for her family.


I think it’s both a great way for us to show our kids that we’re still “cool,” help promote the awesomeness of science and help create a fund to help each other. Let’s face it. All single moms need a little help sometimes. Each mom that does the challenge must donate at least $10 to help us establish the Single Mom Monthly Support Fund.
