Dear ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Haters,

You’re wrong.

My dad died two years ago from complications related to ALS, and I’m here to tell you that the Ice Bucket challenge is not “stupid.” It is not “worthless” or “annoying” or “retarded.” You are just ignorant.

(A reminder that ignorance is not the same as stupidity, and that ignorance can be cured. Here is your cure.)

Many people complain that dumping a bucket of ice over your head won’t solve anything. It’s simply a fad, it’s clogging up news feeds, it’s not doing anything for the actual cause. The term “slacktivism” has been thrown around, implying that these people are akin to those who “Like” causes on Facebook from the comfort of their own home without so much as getting off the couch.

Things to do Thursday!

For all those going back to school Monday, here is a German tradition that I am passing down to my daughter.  It’s called a schultuete, or kinder cone.  It’s given to the child after the first day off school and is really simple to make!!  It’s to celebrate the first day of school and is filled with candy, toys, and or school supplies.

I’ll post a picture of Ava with hers on Monday! 🙂
