Samsung Galaxy S5 ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Yay or Nay?
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is going in full swing with tech celebrities getting on the challenge. This ice bucket challenge is designed to bring awareness and raise funds to fight ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting nerve cells in brain and spinal cord. Following the lead of the "human" leaders, we are now looking at the Samsung Galaxy S5 taking on the challenge and nominating other smartphones leading the smartphone technology world. In this video, Samsung Galaxy S5 has nominated HTC One M8, iPhone 5s, and Lumia 930.

While many are complaining about Sammy having turned a charity cause into a marketing gimmick, we don't seem to hate it. Everything in this commercial world is definitely tweaked to benefit the products or the companies at the end of the day. It is no different then for the case of Galaxy S5 ALS ice bucket challenge. ALS definitely affects humans and NOT smartphones, but it's pretty smart for Samsung Galaxy S5 to have taken that challenge (without a human) and nominating others.
Samsung has also donated to the MND Association, which is what actually matters. As Charlie Sheen so popularly used this challenge changing ice with money, we love Sammy doing the similarish effort by donating. Charlie is donating $10,000 to the ALS foundation and has nominated Jon Cryer, Chuck Lorre, and Ashton Kutcher - of course!
Back from Charlie Sheen to our lovely Galaxy S5 - let's not focus on the marketing parts and enjoy our favorite smartphones doing something for a good cause. Do comment and share your thoughts about this Galaxy S5 ALS ice bucket challenge.
