SPECIAL REPORT: I Challenge YOU! (Episode #59)

August 21, 2014 ::: Events, Feature, Promotions

In just 3 weeks, nearly $42 million has been raised to fight this horrible disease.

To learn more about ALS, and to donate, visit alsa.org.

To learn more about what started the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, check out this video.

And, finally, to see the type of people you’re helping with your donation, check out this video.

I’m challenging: Hubby Gnome (my husband), Wendy Buske & ALL of you!

GnomeAcres Inc. is in no way affiliated with the ALS organization…we just think that this is an incredibly great cause and an AMAZING example of social media done right.

P.S. So sorry for the loudness of the locusts in the background!
