The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral and drawn the attention of more celebrities and their fans than the ALS Association had ever dreamed possible. And with that attention has come a steady stream of donations. As of August 19, 2014, the ALS Association had received $22.9 million in donations from 295,505 new donors, compared to $1.9 million during the same period last year, the ALS Association announced.
ALS Association President and CEO Barbara Newhouse said she has never seen anything like it.
Today 10 Off Lease Only employees in Miami joined in the frigid fun and got drenched outside the car dealership. Off Lease Only Operations Manager Ryan Little and 9 workers from the dealership’s sales, detail and lot staff hoisted buckets of ice water over their heads and dumped away.
“I’m effing soaked, even with a fresh shirt,” joked Little. So was it cold? “Just a little!” Little said.
Ryan nominated Customer Service Manager Tracey Horton, Off Lease Only General Manager John Giasullo and Ms. Kimmy from 99jamz to do the same! They have 24 hours to complete the dare.
