justin timberlake takes and wins ice bucket challenge

Justin Timberlake got all wet for charity recently and it was just so fantastic.

For the past few weeks, an incredible charitable phenomenon has been sweeping the nation: The Ice Bucket Challenge.

It's all about raising money to help fight Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS - Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)!

What participants do is simple, you either pour a large bucket of ice water all down yourself and donate $10 to the ALS Association or you wimp out, stay warm and dry, then donate $100!

After you post a video of yourself undergoing the challenge to social media, you tag friends and challenge them to get wet too!

Justin Timberlake totally accepted the challenge (along with his touring band The Tennessee Kids) and the video is incredible!

They also didn't just donate the $10 after doing the challenge, they donated well over $100!!

Check out the video (below) to see JT get all sorts of wet!

YUP.

Health officials in Florida say a strain of Vibrio vulnificus is to blame for sending dozens of beach-goers to the hospital this summer, with 10 people dying from their infections so far.

This bacteria is very similar to cholera and thrives in the warm salt waters off the Florida coast.

man losing foot goes through bucket list first

Joseph Pleban, 23, absolutely loves sports.

You name it, he's probably played it. Extreme sports and regular ones, it doesn't matter, he loves to be active.

So you can imagine how awful it must've been when doctors told him he had a rare bone and joint disease (pigmented villonodular synovitis), and that he'd have non-cancerous tumors causing pain and arthritis in his ankle for the rest of his life.

He had two options: fuse the ankle and endure a lifetime of surgeries or amputate it.
