    50 cent donated $750,000 in his video :)

    It's all for a good cause but when only 5-15% is actually going into research it is pointless. Just another way for the rich to get richer.
    Better off finding a facility that is researching this disease and fund them directly as needed.

    Actually he just said that he would donate said amount if Floyd Mayweather was able to read a page out of a Harry Potter book without stuttering or stopping.

    I don't think he's gonna have to cough that money up..

    While saving water is a nice thought its not like their going to put the clean water in ziplock bags
    and mail it to people with hardly no water.

    Donating to any disease cure is a waste of money in my opinion. I know I'm going to get slammed for this, but it just goes to a bunch of greedy fat cats that get $300 000 year salaries to pretend like they are looking for a cure. The medical industry is a business an it is much more profitable for them to treat disease than cure it. Biotech companies don't give a shit about people and why should they? The onus is on us to protect our health. But unfortunately whenever we want to try something that may help a cancer sufferer, we need to fight the red tape. It's a lose, lose system for the people and donating your money to them is just helping them not cure the disease.

    Wasn't the main point of my post. Regardless of him donating the money or not, barely anything goes towards the research of this illness.

    I totally agree with this
    There's no money in cure, plus there's the population control aspect. Ppl live longer nowadays if we didn't have "illness/diseases" that kill people we would be over populated. Donate food/clothes to shelters/less fortunate families, there are food/toy drives you can do specially in the xmas time, ect....

    There was a video in the lounge where someone mentioned only 7% is going to research. And as we all know, there are good charities and there are bad charities. According to the BBB, a "good charity" is when 65%+ of the donations go to the intended cause: http://www.bbb.org/blog/2012/09/charitable-donations-defining-the-good-from-the-bad/

    Apparently, based on the BBB's criteria, they would consider ALS an awful "charity".

    I'm surprised that the media keeps pushing their shitty cause and is yet to give them any negative press. Maybe we just gotta wait a few more months till things dwindle down.

    Charities are hilarious, people donating to *most* of them even more.

    You are right but most people don't get it. All they effectively reached with this challenge was wasting water.

    You make a very good point. Long ago before I got into IM I worked at a cancer research and treatment facility. I kid you not, the CEO made $350k a year plus bonuses for him and his upper management staff.

    All of that money they were being paid should have gone to cancer research which is the main reason people were donating in the first place.

    It makes perfect sense from a business perspective. Why would you butcher your treatment income stream with a cure?
