The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is taking the nation by storm.. And say what you will about it, it has raised many many millions of dollars for ALS research. So I am guessing this is just the beginning. Many other causes are about to come out with creative challenges to raise awareness for their foundations. So I decided to help them out and give them ideas to start the next craze.
1. The Raw Onion Challenge -- Prostate Cancer
You have 5 minutes to eat a white onion like you would an apple.. Or donate $20 to Prostate Cancer research.
2. The No Selfie Challenge -- Cystic Fibrosis
You must go one month without taking ANY picture of yourself, taken either by yourself or by someone else. If you fail then you must donate $20 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
3. The Slap In The Face Challenge -- Kidney Disease
A friend or family member must film you getting slapped in the face or else you must donate $20 to the National Kidney Foundation. Don't worry.. To ensure no one gets injured, if you suffer an injury as a result, the slapper has to pay your medical bills PLUS donate $200 to the NKF!
4. The Tic Tac Challenge -- Chronic Halitosis
This is a simple challenge.. How many Tic Tac's can you fit in your mouth at one time? (Not responsible for choking mishaps) If you decline the challenge, you must donate $20 to the ADA.
5. The Bucket Of Spiders Challenge -- The Arachnaphobia Support Group
Dump a bucket of NON-poisonous spiders on a friend to raise awareness and support for The Facebook Arachnophobia support page. If you decline the challenge then you must join their support page and also man up just a little bit.
You're Welcome America!
