Instead of dumping water on myself, I’ll be making a donation to ALSA.org and donating a portion of sales from Paper Crane Books from August 24, 2014 — September 30, 2014.
As my fellow author at Paper Crane Books Michelle Franklin (who so happened to be nominated by the same person) states at her blog:
Why is everyone pouring ice water over their heads? ALS is a debilitating and agonizing disease, and by pouring ice water over our bodies, we are trying to simulate what it would be like to feel the anguish and the immobility of someone stricken with ALS
You can help make a difference by donating to ALSA.org yourself or even by donating to any charity of your choice. Every little bit helps.
