Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway has joined Instagram for one reason and one reason only: to do the ALS Ice Bucket challenge.
TheCelebrityCafe.com recently reported on all of the celebrities participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, so it is no surprise Anne Hathaway decided to join in on raising awareness of the awful disease.
Hathaway posted her challenge on her new Instagram account in two videos, nominating Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Kristen Stewart, and Joan Rivers to do the challenge next.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is a simple idea that has been flooding all our social media feeds. If challenged, participants must either pay $100 to the ALS Association or dump a bucket of ice water on their head. Many have chosen to complete the challenge as well as donate to the ALSA.
ALS is a degenerative disease that attacks a person’s nerves in the brain and spine, according to the ALS Association. Another name for the disease is Lou Gehrig’s disease, after the famous Major League Baseball player who had it.
So far, the challenge has raised $53 million, according to ALSA.org.
