I’m Petite Amie and today, I’m going to forget about my couture gown, perfectly preened fur and… gulp, fear of water.
Yup. Like most bunnies, water gets me all the time. I literally hop away for dear life whenever I see running water. But I’m going to disregard my aquaphobia and focus on a bigger issue – raising awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Motor Neurone Disease.
ALS is the same disease that has plagued Professor Stephen Hawking for more than 50 years. The disease affects the brain and the spinal cord causing motor neurones to degenerate and die, leading to gradual paralysis and eventually death. As of today, there is no known cure.
The funds raised by the ALS Association (US), Motor Neurone Association (UK) and other charities will go towards vital research.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has contributed millions to the cause and today I’m going to do my part by dousing myself in some freezing cold water too. Click to watch now!
If you would like to contribute to the cause without getting yourself drenched, you can also donate to the association by clicking here.
I’ve donated a month supply of carrots and cabbages too. In human dollars, that’s like USD100?
Of course, there are many causes out there that you can also give to. Here are some that are extremely close to my heart.
We can all make a difference in this world, one cause at a time.
Come on! I’m tagging all of you belles reading this right now. Let’s get doused and donate!
Your best girlfriend, Petite Amie
