Erica and Liz do the #icebucketchallenge for ALS awareness

Yesterday I was nominated by Laura to participate in the #icebucketchallenge sweeping the online and social media platforms as a form of ALS awareness and fundraiser.

I gladly accepted the #icebucketchallenge only after I made my donation and nominated my friend, Liz, who did the challenge with me, as well as friends Jason and Renée.

Here’s the fun part!

If you are accepting an #icebucketchallenge of your own, please donate. I’ve created a personal fundraising page for ALS Canada at www.als.ca or you can also donate at www.alsa.org.

Wet, grassy hill meets Birkenstocks. The result? A really loud, audible crunch. Official diagnosis: one broken elbow. Funny, right? Let’s face it, with a … Continue reading
