What Has Replaced the Ice Bucket Challenge?

Four years ago, the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral and helped to raise $115 million to fight ALS.    Now the "Lemon Face Challenge" is trying to do the same.

The effort is to raise money to find a cure for DIPG, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, is a type of brain cancer that attacks the brain stem and mainly effects children.    It was all started by an 11 year old in Alabama named named Aubreigh Nicholas was diagnosed last September, and started the challenge by daring Alabama football coach Nick Saban to do it.

To take the challenge, make a video of yourself eating a lemon wedge and reacting to how sour it is.  Then, challenge at least one other person to do it.    But if you don't want to do it, then you donate to  Aubreigh's Army to help.   

Or, just make a donation here.
