As many of you may know, the ALS Ice bucket challenge has gone viral and has even entered our small Serbian community. Many Serbs around the world are getting involved in fighting this disease. It is better known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” which affects your nervous system and eventually paralyzes the body. As Serbs are sometimes known to be negative, you might hear many say that the ice bucket challenge does nothing to help. $5.5 million have been raised since July 29th compared to last years $32,000 according to Time Magazine http://time.com/3101166/als-ice-bucket-challenge-fundraising/ because of of the awareness being raised with the ice bucket video. Our very own Serbian celebrities have participated in the challenge. Check out the video of Ana Ivanovic and Novak Djokovic. Along with the celebrities many Serbs in Chicago, New York and elsewhere are participating. Still waiting on the ice bucket challenge wave to hit Australia.
