The Last Ice Bucket Challenge You Need To See — And You Really Should See It

Sometimes we forget why we are doing things. Take dumping cold buckets of water on our heads, for example. You've probably seen a lot of videos of your friends doing it this week. Well, here's a really important reminder of the reason we're doing it. Next week the Internet will get back to its regularly scheduled cat videos, I promise. So sit back, grab a tissue, and let's remember the reason behind the fun.

I started this video after the actual challenge, so if you'd like to see the guy get covered with freezing water, go ahead and restart it at the beginning. When I saw this video, I felt it needed to be shared. If you feel the same, feel free to pass it along. And if you want to donate to ALS in his name, I would totally click here.

UPDATE: Thanks to your support, Anthony is going to be on the season premiere of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this Monday, Sept. 8, 2014, to spread even more awareness about the terrifying disease (and its underfunded research). We want everyone to tune in and support Anthony.


For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
