Taylor Swift write a song about a boy who died from cancer, gave his mother the title of co-writer, performed it live once and only once (which she never does), made it available on iTunes, and donated all the proceeds to cancer foundations. And yet all people can talk about is how many guys she’s dated.
Celebrities doing the ALS ice bucket challenge
wow im really happy that all of these wealthy people would prefer doing this than donating money to a charity that will save lives
Okay, I’m a stop you right there. Yes, the basis of the challenge is dump water on your head or donate. But what this challenge is meant to do is RAISE AWARENESS. People who see this end up wondering and then learning what ALS is. And who better to spread the message than celebrities?
People who do the challenge are also still asked to make a donation, and to pass on the challenge. This is good. These celebrities are raising awareness, spreading the message, and probably still donating. But hey, they’re horrible people because they participated in this right? It would ‘ve been better if they wrote a check and never told anyone about it at all.
fun reminder that lady gaga also did this and then donated $10,000 to the foundation and i doubt she’s the only one to do that so pls chill
I’m really happy that this is a thing ☺️
My mom’s best friend passed away from ALS a couple years ago, and I have to say I can agree with both of the commenters above. I think it’s awesome that celebrities are doing it and raising awareness and also donating a lot of money. But seeing people around me do it has been making me really angry because a lot of them don’t even acknowledge that it’s for the disease or know what it is. And they’re just doing this because it’s funny and they don’t want to actually donate to charity. So I can understand the person above’s frustrations.
Get on the plane, get the train,
Walk 300 miles.
Get to her front door and tell her
“I know this is crazy
But I need you now.”
Our lives are too short to always be sensible,
Get the girl.
Distance makes no difference if your eyes light up when she laughs.”
God’s timing only.
