'ALS Ice Bucket
The "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" has taken over social media!
In case you haven't heard, the challenge involves dumping a bucket of ice cold water over your head after being nominated. Once you accept the challenge, you have to nominate three others who then have 24 hours to accept.
The purpose of the nationwide phenomenon is to raise awareness and money for the ALS Association, which fights amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
If someone does not accept the challenge, they must donate $100 to the cause. To date, the ALS Association reports that it has received $4 million in donations in just two weeks.
We've rounded up some of the best videos we've seen so far of celebrities taking the challenge! Watch the videos below.
