    You didn't think Leonardo DiCaprio would pass on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, did you?

    The 39-year-old actor went to Facebook Monday where he proved to fans that he was more than willing to get soaked for a good cause.

    Donning his signature ponytail hairstyle and a growing beard, DiCaprio happily accepted the challenge that resulted in a giant bucket of water being poured down his face.

    He didn't stop there! A source tells E! News the actor personally donated $100,000 to ALS research. Well done, sir!

    He later challenged Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. You have 24 hours, Mr. Harper!

    DiCaprio is currently in Lake Athabasca, Canada, learning about the Canadian tar sands that could be affecting the world's climate.

    The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised close to $80 million for ALS research purposes.

    Just this weekend, Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Wilde, Reese Witherspoon and Rihanna accepted the challenge to raise awareness.

    As DiCaprio says at the end of his video, let's keep it going!
