    #IceBucketChallenge: ACTIVISM or SLACKTIVISM?


Open up your Facebook newsfeed this week, and you are sure to see a few people (ok, more than a few!) dumping ice water on their heads in the name of support for the debilitating disease, ALS, known to many as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
There can be no doubt that the challenge has officially gone viral, and with it, an emerging group of naysayers that have been populating the internet, denouncing the participants with a relatively new catchphrase “slacktivism” – defined as good intentions without any real effort, any real ACTION.
We don’t deny that slacktivism – as defined this way - exists.  After all, we’ve seen it here at ShopFunder as well.  Amazing, heart-tugging causes and campaigns that generate tons of “likes” and “shares” but not so many volunteers, and even less donations.  But we don’t let those “slacktivists” derail us.  What we know to be true here at ShopFunder is true everywhere. 
For every so-called slacktivist, there is a real live genuine activist.  A ShopFunder raising money and awareness – for real – for life-threatening diseases, poverty, rescue animals, schools in need, endangered animals, grassroots organizations and more.  
Someone like those Ice Bucket Challengers, if you must know.
Does dumping ice water really MEAN anything, you ask?
In a word, yes.
Because, according to the ALSA.org, 
“As of Tuesday, August 19, The ALS Association has received $22.9 million in donations compared to $1.9 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 19). These donations have come from existing donors and 453,210 new donors to The Association.”
Twenty-one million MORE dollars for ALS cure research? 
Four hundred and fifty-three thousand, two hundred and ten MORE people that give a damn about ALS?
Hey. If that’s slacktivism - sign us up.

P.S. - What causes might inspire you to do something silly?  For real. We have a few suggestions.
