The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has finally been Sherlocked! You're. Welcome.
On second thought, you may want to direct your thank-yous to Tom Hiddleston and two actresses, as they were the ones who issued the Ice Bucket Challenge to fellow British hottie Benedict Cumberbatch. The Sherlock, The Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness star (and recent addition to the cast of The Jungle Book: Origins), who does not have a public social media account, has finally come through...and in a big way.
Scores of celebrities have in recent days shared similar clips over the past week to raise awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is also referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease and motor neuron disease. Cumberbatch is a Motor Neurone Disease Association ambassador and his video was posted on the group's YouTube page on Friday. The ALS Association said that day it has received $53.3. million in donations from July 29 to Thursday, compared to $2.2 million during the same time period last year.
