“Ice Bucket Challenge” is Hot. - Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Genko Penev, CEO of NextPointHost, who took the challenge to raise awareness of motor neuron disease a couple of days ago, nominated all existing and future customers of the company to accept the Ice Bucket Challenge. In return, everyone, who supports the campaign before 1st of October, 2014, will also receive the first month FREE for any shared hosting plan that the company offers.

We at NextPointHost wanted to be part of this great cause and challenge others to do the same. All of our customers, who will accept the challenge, can post their videos on our Facebook page or can write to us at and they will get the first month free.

Last month, people started participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Last week, the challenge went viral — spurring thousands of people to get involved in the campaign that raises money for funding research to find a cure for the disease. Literally thousands of people have been dousing themselves with buckets of ice water to support the campaign. In just one month, the ALS Association has received $80m in donations.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is simple: donate $100 or dump a bucket of ice water over your head and donate $10.

All donations are made to the ALS Association and of course, you can always donate more than the specified amount. Once you make your choice, you must nominate a few friends to complete the challenge and post a video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
