Video game Destiny has officially done the Ice Bucket Challenge by sending an ice filled bucket from the moon.
Developer Bungie has created an Ice Bucket Challenge video on their YouTube channel using current assets from the upcoming title, Destiny. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been spreading around the internet, reaching celebrities, fictitious characters and everyone else in-between.
The Wizard from Destiny has challenged Jonathan Iron of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (voiced by Kevin Spacey), Joel from The Last of Us (voiced by Troy Baker), and Star Wars creator, George Lucas. Until September 9th Bungie, will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the Bungie Store (www.bungiestore.com) to the ALS Association.
The ALS.org website describes ALS as:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed
Please donate to the cause, its your Destiny
