Bonnie Rotten Prepared to Take Ice Bucket Challenge — Naked

LOS ANGELES — In the spirit of ALS awareness, Bonnie Rotten is ready to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge — naked.

ALS, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease causes the degeneration of a person’s motor neurons, affecting voluntary muscle action and eventually leading to death. There is currently no cure and only one approved medicine used in treatment.

Celebrities throughout the U.S. are taking the Ice Bucket Challenge — literally taking a bucket of ice water over their head. They then challenge others to do the same or to make a donation to fight ALS. Always happy to help the medical community, over the weekend Rotten challenged her Twitter followers to tweet her proof of their donations and once 50 fans have made donations she will take a bucket of ice water over her head — while naked — for all to see.

“I think it’s really important to help find a cure for ALS and I think this is the best way for me to help out,” Rotten said. “I hate water and I hate being cold, but it’s a small price to pay. The reaction has been fantastic and I’m really proud of how my fans have stepped up for this important cause.”

By noon Sunday she was already halfway to her goal of 50. After reaching 50 she will videotape her ice bucket moment and post the video for everyone to see. Fans should make their donations alsa.org/donate/. Tweet a screenshot of your donation to @thebonnierotten and then stay tuned to her Twitter feed for what looks like an inevitable and sexy Ice Bucket Challenge.
