ALS ice bucket challenge and Robin Williams

How wonderful is this ALS ice bucket challenge? I know there are a few grinches who aren’t happy to just scroll a little further (maybe because they haven’t been nominated…?) and are generally poops, but the fact is that this meme has been so wonderful for the als charities! I’m so moved by this.

It’s been a lovely distraction from my sadness over Robin Williams. I have a novel in my drafts right now that I began but haven’t had the heart to finish. Summary: My hero. Devastating end. I want to hug his whole family.

But then I had an idea I hope you tumblr (and my 12 followers) could perhaps give a piece of their brains on? I’m using so many question marks here. Anyway. What if we began a similar challenge to make people SMILE? And gave donations to an organization whose object is to research more about how to handle mental health and/or depression.

I was thinking the challenge would be to essentially find a stranger and make them smile/laugh. Tell a cheesy joke, compliment them, etc. For those a bit weary of strangers, maybe a sad family member or friend.

a quick google search brings up imhro, bbr foundation.

Let me know what you think, please. I love the idea and success of the ALS and I think it would be wonderful to do something similar for another foundation as well.

IT HAS NOT BEEN 5 YEARS. NO.
YOU REALIZE THIS MEANS LUKE’S LITTLE SISTERS WHO WERE LIKE MAYBE 13 CAN NOW LEGALLY VOTE?!

RIP

Absolutely devastating news. This isn’t about celebrity, Finn, element of surprise, media, whatever. This is about a poor, tortured soul who left too soon. Utterly heartwrenching. Of course our thoughts with his cherished ones.

Let’s please, please have the utmost respect. 

A person is a person, no matter how well known their name may or may not be. They have family, friends, pet peeves, a history, a first bike they rode, a first word they said, a story to tell… The only thing that I hope can come out of this is a more awakened approach of how to support and love those with addictions. No matter how difficult it may be. These people are no longer themselves and have a lack of clarity. Instead of judging them for becoming addicted direct that anger towards those who distribute and make these drugs. (no matter what they are.)

Finally, let’s hope the media gives his family and friends and girlfriend some peace. Let them not be the heartless creatures they have established themselves to be and not take pictures. Not push them for a response. Not email their reps for answers or try and not try to get a shot of tears for green.

Remember love. In the end, that’s the best that we can do.
