Amazing Ice Bucket Challenges of The Business Rich
You’d have to ignore the Internet completely to miss the Ice Bucket Challenge craze. The viral campaign is a brilliant way of spreading awareness and raising money for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
It’s estimated that the viral challenge has raised an estimated $15 million in just a couple weeks.
The Ice Bucket Challenge Rules
Once you’re challenged, you have to either donate $100 or dump a bucket of ice water on your head. Then you get to nominate three people to do the same. They have 24 hours to do the challenge or must donate the money. Of course, the A-listers and other business rich have been doing both the challenge and donating! Here are some great ones to watch. They’re as entertaining as they are charitable in spirit.
The one and only Oprah Winfrey is always good for a charitable occasion. Although her net worth is around $2.9 billion, the wonderful O dumped an ice bucket on herself without flinching. Of course, she did scream (a lot). Her reaction is absolutely priceless.
So very wealthy and now so very wet and cold! Bill Gates is the quintessential, definitive business rich man. The tech leader has been the richest man in the world off and on for years. Currently, he has a net worth of about $80.5 billion. Check out his challenge below.
Dave Grohl/Foo Fighters
Technically, music is a business. We don’t normally feature musicians on the business rich, or millionaires, but this Carrie parody is a well-produced short film and skyrocketed Dave Grohl to the top of BR’s favorite ice bucket challenges. It’s by far one of the most elaborate so far. It’s so entertaining, The Business Rich forgot we were watching an ice bucket challenge. We thought Dave Grohl was just taking a stab at the campy horror genre.
