I Challenge You!
Alanna Delfino (ViewFinder ’14) turned the camera on me for a change after I was challenged by Ulysses Muñoz (ViewFinder ’15) in an #ALSIceBucketChallenge video. I challenge everyone to participate in this social event that draws attention and raises funds for ALS. So I am offering an incentive. http://alsa.org/donate/
How it works
For every student produced #IceBucketChallenge inspired video that tags me (@bethanysstories) and #ALSforEd on twitter, I will donate $25 to ALS. Up to $400 total donation.
This is more than just an excuse to see students and friends get creative. My father-in-law, Ed Swain, passed away in 2004 from ALS. I was there when he died, after years of suffering. I want to see my students produce videos up to the production standards that this subject deserves. And even better if you also give a donation: http://alsa.org/donate/
Thanks Eric Seals for the No Vertical Video reminder.
More on ALS: Here is a video I did for CNN on life with this fatal disease.

Alanna’s video was the first response to my challenge
