I am just a goat.
An old goat at that.
My friend Waffles from Glogirly challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS.
This has been going around the internet for a while now.
ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease because the famous baseball player had it.
It is a very insidious disease that attacks human's nerve cells and leads to their death.
As far as know it is not something we goats get.
But that does not mean that we cannot help support the cause.
I urge you humans who don't know about it to learn more at the ALS Association website.
I have made a donation from my apple money because even though it does not impact goats I think it is an important cause.
Now, as to this ICE BUCKET challenge.
Goats DO NOT like water.
The publicist has told you stories of how we MAAAAA loudly to go into the barn any time it rains.
So given this there was no way I was going to have water dumped over my head.
Not to mention the fact that I think it might just give me a goat heart attack!
So I did the challenge in my own special way.....
I hope Waffles approves.
If you cannot see the movie you can watch it on YouTube HERE
Now I hope that you all take the time to goatumacate yourselves about ALS and if you have a few extra green papers make a donation.
There is also Sparkle's Memorial Service tomorrow on her blog. There will be a commentathon for Tabby's Place in her honor. The publicist made a donation in Sparkle's honor from all of us here on the Farm. Please be sure to stop by and leave a comment and make a donation if you can.
I know I am asking for a lot of your monies today but these are both good causes.
