3 UNEXPECTED LESSONS THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE HAS TAUGHT US

The ALS ice bucket challenge has quickly become this summer’s viral movement version of the “Harlem Shake,” Tebow-ing, and “Call Me Maybe” video parodies. Like any viral movement, there is a lot we can learn about culture and the ALS ice bucket challenge is no different.
