Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams has become the latest celebrity to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Abrams was challenged by none other than director Steven Spielberg.
Before taking the challenge, Abrams revealed that his grandfather suffered from ALS and that he was going to be making a donation on behalf of him to the fight against ALS. Abrams took an unusual twist with his nominations. Abrams nominated the entire 501st legion, who are a group of Star Wars fans that often do charitable work.
In addition, Abrams also nominated actor Greg Grunberg and author Stephen King. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge helps to raise awareness and donations for ALS charities.
