I don’t know why the ALS Challenge debate pisses me off so much but it really does. First of all, I think I can speak for most people who don’t support the challenge when I say that I don’t think it’s a stupid idea, I just think it’s terrible timing and honestly should’ve been done in a less wasteful way. It’s creative and effective, yes. But pretty counter-productive on California’s end. Besides, no one even cared about the ALS Association until it gave them a reason to argue with people. And if the challenge was solely to donate money to the organization, how popular would it be?
