If you are on social media, you may have noticed your news feed is overrun with people participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Thus far, the challenge has raised more than $15 million dollars for the ALS Association and piqued the interest of celebrities, athletes, politicians, and more around the globe.
The challenge has people choose to dump a bucket of ice water over their head or donate $100 to the ALS Association. That individual, in turn, nominates three of other people to do the same. Those people are supposed to have 24 hours to complete the task.
After receiving challenges from his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, pro-golfer Rory McIlory, and New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, former president George W. Bush accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge… kind of.

Bush has since nominated former President Bill Clinton to dump a bucket of ice water over his head and/or make a donation to the ALS Association. It remains to be seen how Clinton responds.
“We are now at the point where former presidents of the United States are challenging each other,” Stu said on radio this morning. “I mean it is the most successful one of these things I have ever seen.”
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has also made its way around TheBlaze offices in both New York and Dallas. On Tuesday, TheBlaze’s senior director of ecommerce, LJ Herman, accepted the challenge from a few of his coworkers and donned his En Fuego mascot costume.
