Drake Does The Ice Bucket Challenge For ALS, Nominates Beyonce [VIDEO]
Drake is the latest celebrity to partake in the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS, as Lil Wayne did the honors.
Drizzy got doused with the frigid ice bath while fans in the crowd cheered on at the Pittsburgh stop of the 'Drake vs. Lil Wayne' tour. The audience was in a frenzy as they helped Wayne with the countdown before he poured the bucket over Drake's head.
Their screams reached a fever pitch when the Toronto rapper ripped off shirt after being drenched.
As you can see in the video at the top of the post, Weezy already did his own Ice Bucket Challenge as part of his 'Weezy Wednesday' video series. Many high profile celebrities like Iggy Azalea, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, and many others have also completed the challenge.
Charlie Sheen took things to a new level by dumping a bucket of $10,000 in cash over his head and pledging the money to ALS—a terminal illness with no cure, commonly known as Lou Gherig's disease. As of Sunday, the ALS Association says they have raised $13.3 million since July.
Compare that to the $1.7 million raised in the same time frame last year and its clear to see that this campaign has definitely been effective.
Drake has nominated Beyonce, who has 24 hours to complete the challenge or donate money to the ALS Association. Many people—both celeb and non-celeb—are completing the challenge AND still donating the money, which to me is the best move.
The clocks ticking, Bey.
