I think it is sad if the only way you can get people to donate money for a valuable cause is to make them do some kind of stupid challenge. Most people feel the need to take a picture of their breakfast and sharing it on the internet, I suppose quietly donating regularly doesn't get you attention and retweets. It has to become interactive and a pretext for creating and sharing media. In itself it's a very good buzz-marketing campaign. But it works. So it's okay I guess.
Alright guys let's steer it back on topic. I will add one further point in that those who only do it for the attention are ruining it for people who are actually donating. Because then people complain about slacktivism and how stupid the whole thing is. And while the entire process has led to millions of dollars being raised for a good cause, it doesn't necessarily reflect well on humanity that we have to see an opportunity to go viral just to donate.
wait,wait is this shit real? cause if it is its not reassuring that a leader of worlds superpower that have nuclear weapons on its disposal is arriving on Nuclear Security Summit casually riding skateboard...what if he decide he is not rad enough...might press some red buttons ...just saying...

I'm not sure if it's the same everywhere but in new zealand you had to scull a beer at the same time as having the ice water splilled on your head, one dude tried to scull a bottle of jim beam (i think it was) while doing it and died.
...and that is how natural selection works ...
personally Charlie Sheen did it best i mean he actually used money instead of ice ,donated said money and said :
"Because, let's face it, ice is going to melt but this money is actually going to help people." which is in contrast to all those idiots who did that shit for fun and likes and what not.
I like Charlie Sheen, but nobody's got shit on Captain Picard.
