I've been challenged to the ice bucket challenge, and instead of dumping a stupid bucket on my head, I want to raise actual awareness for other causes as well. The ALS Association's website has a lot of useful information I plan to use, but I also want to raise awareness for other important things like what is happening in Ferguson and the fact that the 200 Nigerian girls are still missing. Important news gets overshadowed by hashtag trends perpetuated by people who don't even pay attention to the cause.

I barely have enough money to take care of myself some days but if I could, I would probably throw all of my excess money at charity and just live within my means. I can probably donate $10 to ALS, but I want to raise actual awareness for ALS, for the people of Ferguson, and what else might be going on that people should be aware of! Please help!
