  • Joey de Leon has a reminder to those who plan to participate in the much publicized ALS ice bucket challenge. “Don’t nominate if you don’t donate,” read a printed mes­sage he bears in an Instagram photo. On Twitter, the co­median further said, “Wag GALATE agad. Do not HATE. I said DONATE muna ka­hit anong DENOMINATE (tion)…”

    Actress-comedian Tuesday Vargas also shared her thoughts on the matter by sharing an Instagram photo message that read: “Donate. Do not nominate.”

    She wrote, “In a world brimming with problems, we should help one another con­serve our valuable resources and direct our efforts instead to tangible result oriented causes. Waste not, want not.”

    Note that the chal­lenge works in that one dares the nominated person to be filmed while having a bucket of ice-cold water poured onto him before challenging some­one else to followsuit. As per rule, the nomi­nee who refuses to take on the challenge or fails to complete it within 24 hours should do­nate $100 dollars to the ALS association. The ice bucket challenge aims to raise funds for people suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or also known as Lou Gehrig’s dis­ease.

    More and more
    The new social media trend has already reached the attention of country’s high-profile personalities includ­ing Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and Bureau of Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares who both accepted  the challenge from broad­caster Anthony Taberna.

    De Lima gamely took on the dare during a break at the Department of Justice headquarters in Manila on Tuesday.

    As seen in a video, de Lima, wearing her work clothes and slippers, made a sign of the cross before she was poured with two buckets of ice-cold water by her secu­rity men, that got the employees shrieking.

    “I love challenges, es­pecially for a worthy cause. Marami na ang nag-take ng challenge all over the globe.

    That’s why others, kunin din nila kasi it’s for a wor­thy cause; makakatulong po tayo,” she told reporters. She went on to nomi­nate Davao City Mayor Rodri­go Duterte, former Senator, now Yolanda Rehabilitation czar Panfilo Lacson and Iloilo Representative Niel Tupas. Taberna posted a video of Henares getting drenched. He said that the commissioner nominated Bureau of Internal Revenue Deputy Commissioner Estela Sales. (M. Duran)
