I hate people respond to the criticism of by saying "but it's raising awareness" awareness does absolutely jack **** to help cure diseases just about everyone has been aware of cancer for years but it's still around awareness doesn't do jack **** so stop pretending you give a **** about ALS because you want to get facebook likes unless you actually donate you're not doing jack ****

Raising awareness means more people actually know about the disease and the research going into stopping it, meaning more money will donate money to the research and better research can be done.

yes me being aware of breast cancer does jack **** for an example, But that does not mean it is not helping the research, by me you and every other cunt under the sun knowing about the research a hell of a lot more money is going towards finding a way to help people with breast cancer.

Do you get my point?

basically you are not the only person on the planet champ, there are 7 billion of us here.

Probably what bothers me most about the bucket challenge is that, if there was bucket challenge for ALS, people would not have donated or spread awareness. Why do people need a trendy social activity to do what's good? I know I know, people like to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves, and by participating, they are "social" and part of a "social movement", but fundamentally I still think it's dumb that people won't spread awareness and donate just from the goodness of their heart.

That said, I'm not dismissing the amount of money that has been raised so far, nor am I saying that the ends do not justify the means. I just find it saddening that people need trendy social activities and social movements to do good things instead of just doing them for goodness sake

Did you know that most other treatments and research into other cancers are actually being hurt by "breast cancer awareness"... Guess what? People are very aware of breast cancer, time to start helping all of the other cancers that just get sidelined
