According to Liberty Voice, President Obama is not the only highly public figure to turn down the ice bucket challenge. Charlie Sheen spectacularly chose not to take part by throwing $10,000 over his head. While some believe he ruined the fun, he did point out that the whole point was to raise money and that $10,000 would go to the ALS charity.

The U.S. president has stated that he is donating to the cause. The same appears for all other officials who have been nominated. There is nothing wrong with them giving to charity and it is certainly a good cause.
