奥普拉接受冰桶挑战

2014-08-18    来源:MSN.com    【      美国外教 在线口语培训
在2014年炎热的夏天,一桶冰水当头倒下,微软的比尔盖茨、Facebook的扎克伯格跟桑德博格、亚马逊的贝索斯、苹果的库克全都不惜湿身入镜,这些硅谷的科技人,飞蛾扑火似地牺牲演出,其实全为了慈善。全称为“ALS冰桶挑战赛”(ALS Ice Bucket Challenge),要求参与者在网络上发布自己被冰水浇遍全身的视频内容,然后该参与者便可以要求其他人来参与这一活动。活动规定,被邀请者要么在24小时内接受挑战,要么就选择为对抗“肌肉萎缩性侧索硬化症”捐出100美元。该活动旨在是让更多人知道被称为渐冻人的罕见疾病,同时也达到募款帮助治疗的目的。目前“ALS冰桶挑战赛”在全美科技界大佬、职业运动员中风靡。

OPRAH WINFREY AND GAYLE KING ACCEPT THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE FROM NANCY O'DELL

After accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday, Nancy O'Dell challenged her friends to do the same. Both Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King accepted and thanked Nancy for the challenge.
 
Gayle accepted and posted an Instagram video of her daughter Kirby pouring the ice bucket over her head.
 
She says in the caption, "Looks like my favorite daughter Kirby enjoyed this a little too much."
 
Oprah went on Facebook to share her ice bucket pour from none other than best friend Gayle herself.
 


The ALS Ice Bucket challenge has gone viral. It encourages people to pour buckets of ice on their heads and donate money for ALS research, and it is working. According to the ALS web site, "Between July 29 and today, August 12, The ALS Association and its 38 chapters have received an astonishing $4 million in donations compared to $1.12 million during the same time period last year."
 
President and CEO of The ALS Association, Barbara Newhouse says, "We have never seen anything like this in the history of the disease. We couldn't be more thrilled with the level of compassion, generosity and sense of humor that people are exhibiting as they take part in this impactful viral initiative."
 
Many celebrities have participated in the challenge including Adam Levine, Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kerry Washington and Taylor Swift. Celebrity or not, the challenge continues to grow with every person who participates.
 
ALS Awareness is especially close to Nancy as her mother passed away from the disease. When she took the challenge, her "ET" family joined her. You can watch this video to see Nancy and the "ET" team get iced.(MSN.com)
