Countless Americans, including many high-profile celebrities, have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. A new report finds it's paying off.
The ALS Association reports it has received $94.3 million in donations over the past month. Compare that to $2.7 million during the same time period last year.
The donations have come from existing donors, as well as over 2,000,000 new contributors.
The association has pledged to use these donations wisely to assist patients suffering from ALS, as well as fund research to find treatments and a cure for the disease.
