Video: Microsoft’s Bill Gates takes the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’

Published: Updated:

Microsoft’s Bill Gates has accepted a challenge from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to be doused by a bucket of ice-cold water in support of sufferers of neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).



Many celebrities, including Zuckerberg, have taken part in what come to be known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge.” The rules of the challenge are simple: a person must either donate a sum of $100 to an ALS charity or dump a bucket of ice water on his/her head – or both.



According to the ALS Foundation, the scheme has raised $5.7 million since its launch on July 29.
