ALS - Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket challenge bugs me a little.
just a little...

What it's supposed to be is a way to both raise money for research and raise awareness to the cause.
It's done a good job of doing both.
That's not what bugs me.

What bugs me are the people who do the Ice Bucket Challenge wrong. 
Like not mentioning ALS or not mentioning where they can donate/find out more info. 

Pretty much just dumping cold water on their heads for the sake of following a trend. 
People doing it for the sake of attracting attention to themselves... that bugs me.

I've seen so many videos from people just dumping cold water on their heads and calling out three more people.
No mention of the cause, no call to action... nothing.

Also, while we're on the topic of doing The Ice Bucket Challenge wrong, can we make sure there's ice in your buckets.
I've seen people just pour water on their heads. Just plain (probably room temperature) water.
That's cheating. 

That being said, I haven't been called out yet.
People must realize that I'm so cool the low temperature of the water will have no affect on me.
