Victoria Beckham, wife of David Beckham, also completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that is a viral trend these days.

Victoria Beckham also joined the increasing and long list of celebrities that took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. But it was not that easy for her.

When the buckets of icy cold water was dumped upon her by her hubby David Beckham and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, she was forced to kneel down on the ground due to the sheer force of the water. 

Eva Longoria challenged David Beckham's fashion designer wife to take up the challenge. And she completed the challenge to help the good cause of the ALS Foundation.

Her husband David Beckham and one of her sons Brooklyn had already completed the challenge two days before Victoria. Victoria Beckham also shared footage of her taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on her Facebook account yesterday.

She nominated Tom Ford, Katie Holmes and her youngest son Cruz to take up the challenge after her. Among the list of celebrities that have participated in the ordeal of ice cold liquid may be included Justin Bieber, Iggy Azalea, Tim Cook, Dr. Dre, Ben Affleck and many more. Bieber even had the chutzpah to nominate President Obama to undergo the baptism by icy water. 

The ice bucket challenge is basically an awareness raising campaign that collects funds for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. By having a container of cold-as-hell water poured on top of your head you are in a way identifying with sufferers of the incurable illness. 

Such challenges and tests are a feature that increases the level of awareness about various issues. Like the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge too has its rightful place in the causes worth donating money to as well as undertaking.     

And the latest data reveals that more than $15 million have been raised for Project A.L.S. since July 29 via this viral Ice Bucket Challenge. 

Nicole Kidman and Jason Bateman also took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Project A.L.S. was founded in 1998 by Jenifer Estess, her sisters, and friends, and has become the new paradigm for brain disease research. Project A.L.S. identifies and funds the most promising, rational, and aggressive research strategies among collaborators at Harvard, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York University, and The Salk Institute, among others.
