KSDK - The ice bucket challenge has become a viral social media craze over the summer, as tens of thousands of people post embarrassing videos of themselves getting doused with freezing water, all in the name of charity.

The challenge is simple enough: participants have 24 hours after being challenged to accept. Folks take a bucket of ice water, dump it on their head, and can then issue the challenge to three other people.

The ultimate goal is to raise money and awareness in the fight against Lou Gehrig's Disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). By accepting the ice bucket challenge, participants can donate $10 to the cause at ALSA.org, or they can opt to give a $100 donation and not take the challenge.
