You are probably aware of the ongoing #IceBucketChallenge trend that has gone viral all over the world. But in case you live under a rock and you're not familiar with it, let us fill you in. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was conceived as a fun way to raise money and awareness of the fatal neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as “Lou Gehrig's Disease”. Once you have been publicly challenged, you're supposed to either make a video of yourself getting a bucket of ice water dumped over your head and donate $10, or if you wuss out, you donate $100 to the ALS Association. Many celebrities and high-powered CEOs have jumped on the charitable bandwagon, and besides being a good sport and soaking themselves with icy cold water, they donate way more than the challenge requires you to. These are the top 12 best celebrity “ice bucket challenge” videos down below.
