There's the Melbourne Shuffle, and the Harlem Shake. I assume the Harlem Shuffle is doing the Melbourne Shuffle during a Harlem Shake.

Newsreader beautifully shuts down ALS challenge:


Quote:
While it's undoubtedly in a good cause, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has reached the point of near-ubiquity on the internet. When someone challenged Queensland newsreader and seemingly pretty bloody ripper bloke Lincoln Humphries to tip water over his head in the name of charity, he gently but firmly shut the idea down.

After starting out his video by nominating "everyone everywhere", Humphries acknowledged the good that the ice bucket challenge has done, then suggested some other things we could be doing to make a difference, including spreading the love around to other deserving causes like cancer and fresh water charities, and not wasting so much damn ice.

Never before has the regional broadcaster WIN been more worthy of its name.

I don't know much about ALS or what it does, so these videos did increase my awareness of it. If you guys wanna actually donate some money....

I got issued the challenge. Is this link the proper one for donations?

Edit. .. never mind. ..I found out off als.ca

So how does that idiot expect the ALS organization to work? Or any non-profit organization? Someone has to run the damn things, and those people need to get paid for their work. It's not like they're just taking the money and running away with it

Some organizations run much more efficiently then others. 7% is a shockingly low number.

I don't know if the numbers he found are tabulated differently then how some sites like charity watch, or charity rating sites add up values.

For what its worth I havnt researched this at all, but ChildFund, or Christian Childrens fund as it was previously known, was once publicly humiliated for their high fees and high administrative costs. Today Childfund manages to only take about 20% of each dollar. That means that 80% of each dollar donated actually goes towards helping those who need it.

That's a pretty bleak comparison to the 7% of ALS.

certainly makes me curious why the gap is so large...

EDIT: That guy is a nutjob, ALSA spent almost 72% of their budget on services directly related to their cause. While that number is still low compared to most well run organizations, ALSA is also pretty small in comparison to salvation army, and childfund. So it is difficult for them to stack up the same.

Should have known, this is what you get when you try and defend the point of some dumbass who posted a video on worldstar for christ sake.

The guy mentions 7% because that is all that went directly to research. What this clown ass guy neglected to mention how another 63% went towards actually helping communities affected by ALS, and those who have the disease.

She'll probably kill me for putting it up on here, but I think my friend has all you beat.


And, yes, she also donated to the cause.
