COLD FOR A CAUSE: Incoming freshmen (from left) Natalya Stefanovich, Victoria Good, Caitlyn Spetzer, Crystal Cosgrove and Nicole Dunn at Mount Aloysius College in Pennsylvania take the ALS ice bucket challenge. Even politicians and celebrities are getting in on the act with everyone from former President George W. Bush, actress Lindsay Lohan and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney all willingly getting doused with freezing water for the cause. In this image from video posted on Facebook, courtesy of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, former President George W. Bush participates in the ice bucket challenge with the help of his wife, Laura Bush, in Kennebunkport, Maine. The challenge has caught on with notable figures participating in the campaign to raise money for the fight against ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. The phenomenal success of the fundraising craze is making charitable organizations rethink how they connect with a younger generation of potential donors, specifically through social media.
