Obama pours cold water on Ice Bucket Challenge
Aug 22 2014 , Edgartown (US)
The challenge asks people to post videos of themselves being doused with cold water and publicly call on others to do the same within 24 hours, or donate $100 to the ALS Association. It has raised more than $40 million.
Ethel Kennedy, the 86-year-old Kennedy family matriarch, tagged Obama to participate after recently soaking herself at her family's Massachusetts compound, knowing the president was vacationing nearby.
Obama participated financially by donating an undisclosed sum.
