Keep the negative comments about the Ice Bucket Challenge to yourself.
A positive thing is happening. We’re paying attention to an illness that most of us have never even heard of. Why so much negativity? If you personally feel like the effort is a waste of time and energy, that’s perfectly fine, but there’s no reason to keep harping on it all over the Internet. Social media affects mood subconsciously, and once that tone takes over, the mood shifts and more of us begin to feel it’s a waste of time whether that was your original intention or not.
I see the same criticisms about the Ice Bucket Challenge over and over and these are some of the most used.
