Am I the only one?

So there’s this whole huge thing about donating to ASL or dumping ice water on your head and people are going nuts doing it.   

Am I the only one who sees this as a very subtle way of bullying people into giving up money?  I don’t have $100 to donate.  I don’t really want to dump ice on myself.    I choose my causes.   I’m not saying this isn’t a good cause, it is.   I just don’t like being “challenged” to do something I don’t want to do, and being made to feel like a bad person because I don’t want to do it. 

I’m thrilled that people are donating money.  I hope they find a cure for this disease.  I just don’t think this is the way to go about raising money.  Yeah, it works.  That doesn’t make it a good idea.
