The Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket ChallengeThe Ice Bucket Challenge is upon us… well actually its upon Steve Schulz and Vanessa Hunter! Steve and Vanessa were recently called out by SOC Distributor Steve Baily to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge and donate $100 to ALS.

You may have seen a few of these videos going on around on social media. Perfectly dry individuals dump buckets of ice-cold water all over themselves. Why you ask? To draw attention to one of the largest under funded causes that is searching for a cure for ALS.

THE ALS ASSOCIATIONWhat is ALS? Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disorder also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, attacks nerve cells and leads to paralysis. The New York Times reports roughly 30,000 Americans now have ALS, which leaves victims with a life expectancy of two to five years after diagnosis. There is no treatment or cure currently available.

The Ice Bucket Challenge caught on like wild-fire through the power of social media andIceBucketChallenge has made the most unique and emotionally charged story about a fundraiser. Donations for ALS are up 766 percent due to this viral campaign. That’s how a largely underfunded cause has turned into the fastest growing charitable campaigns in the world right now. That’s how a $100 donation has morphed into more than $22 million in just over a month.

Celebrities who have joined the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge include Justin Timberlake, Carmelo Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Bill Gates, Jimmy Fallon, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Ben Affleck and Chris Pratt. And now our very own SOC celebrities are going head to head!

Steve and Vanessa have been challenged and pinned against one another. Who ever receives the most cards by Monday August 25th will be spared from the icy waters, but the one with the least amount will most certainly be drenched!

We are honored as a SOC Family to be doing our part in donating to ALS and prompting others to do so as well, get out there and do your part, make a difference in someone’s life today and help impact the future for us all. It is another way we can act upon our promptings and focus on others. We are capable of changing lives with one card, one gift and one icy bucket at a time.

Stay tuned to find out who will get soaked!

Watch Kody Bateman successfully complete the

    Good Day everyone, just want to share my experience here so you all should be more careful when contacting any herbalist for solution cos majority of the testimonies here are fake and were the ones that fooled me.
    they all uses the same local code number (+234) cos i have been screwed by some of them.
    My Husband was DX with ALS for years and i went everywhere to get useful information that will help cure or suppress the disease.
    then i came across testimonies of those that took my hard earn money without any useful information or cure but they keep telling stories.
    about two months ago, a new staff was applied in my place of work and when He heard about my Husband Disease He was so remorseful and told me about Dr Alex.
    but i felt it was still one of those internet guys so i didnt call or text Dr Alex. later that week, He asked me if ive heard from Dr Alex and he gave me proof and reasons to try.
    well, lots of thanks to Dr Alex cos as im writing this message, my Husband is CURED through the herbs that Dr Alex sent to us.
    so after my experience, i decided to save some people from falling to the hands of SCAMS.
    thnks for your time and if you require the service of Dr Alex, you have to reach him via email  (dralexherbalmedication@outlook.com)
    you can also do reach me on priscajin@gmail.com or (248) 886-4920
