Change in the short term
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by alliewallie

Advantages: Raises the charity profile, extra donations for the time the fundraiser is viral
Disadvantages: None except that I don't think these kinds of challenge are a long term fix

...Bucket Challenge but because it has mainly happened on the social media sites I haven't caught as much of the hysteria as a lot of people as I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account and I think that's where most of the act ... Read review

'Numbination'
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Personally raised 40K for charitable organisations since 2008
Disadvantages: Charity fads die, but their lasting effect is everlasting to the charity's detriment

Odd that the questioner is purely targeting healthcare; surely the ‘IBC’ is a conscience effort to set a fundraising milieu for Lou Gehrig’s Disease funding? This is evidently, ‘crowd-funding.’ Changing the future is befuddling at the best of times – for ... Read review

If it helps raise money for a pretty un romantic charity then all good I feel by catsholiday
Thank you. I do now have at least the vaguest idea of what the IBC is all about. Seriously. I kept seeing it mentioned and had absolutely no idea what people were going on about... just one of the the joys of an FB-free life! by hiker

The Latest Viral Fundraising Gimmick.
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by jojodixon

Advantages: An added gimmick raises money quicker.
Disadvantages: How many actually donate?

Will It Change Anything? I don't think that the recent Ice Bucket Challenge will change future fundraising methods, as I don't think the method of adding a gimmick to help raise awareness for a charity is anything new. Before the Ice Bucket Challeng ... Read review

Charity.. or vanity?
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by misspurple7

Advantages: Cheap for charities, quick to catch on and raises cash
Disadvantages: Short lived, lack of research by participants could lead to this being abused, peer pressure.

I remember having having quite heated argument with someone on Facebook some time ago over the reason for everyone changing their profile picture to their favourite childhood character. It was quite a vague answer, supposedly it was to ''raise awareness' ... Read review

not my idea of fun
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by mikeyc123

Advantages: raised money for charity
Disadvantages: not my idea of fun

Standing or sitting somewhere whilst a bucket of ice water is dumped over you then you nominate three others to do the same in order to raise money (or just to get your 15 minutes of fame). Well I can think of better ways of raising money which don’t invo ... Read review

Absolutely yes but with some exceptions
Review of Should all firearms be banned for private use? by sully_5

Advantages: private life should be safer and more secure...
Disadvantages: ...while research and development should go further to experimentation

Creating and developing firearms is essentially a natural human purpose since mankind has always needed a way to stay safe and to survive through better and efficient weapons. Weapons are simply an extension of human's capacity of defense and attack. This ... Read review

Smoking must be avoided but we can find also a compromise
Review of Should Smoking Be Banned In Pubs? by sully_5

Advantages: a lot of business have applied smoke restriction or have prepared a fair service
Disadvantages: smoke creates health and money problems so should be avoided

Smoking is a social and cultural act merged in the society since the spread of tobacco in the last centuries. It's interesting to notice that each country has its particular way to produce and consume tobacco due to the influence of past colonizations or ... Read review

Did you partake of the Ice Bucket Challenge?
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by CoffeeQueen68

Advantages: Is great fun and was highly publicised.
Disadvantages: The health risks and people who did not donate.

The Ice Bucket Challenge seems to have blown by now, but I have seen a lot of people, including celebrities, taking part in this challenge. Yes, it is amusing to watch, especially watching the celebs doing it and yes, it does highlight the charities conc ... Read review

Things might start to brighten up!
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by Lily_AnnM

Advantages: Getting wet is fun. With ice cold water it's funny, it's a laugh. Raises awareness.
Disadvantages: NONE.

So... WHAT is the Ice Bucket Challenge? What rock have you been living under to not know such a thing? Well... The Ice Bucket Challenge is just as it's called. A challenge made to raise awareness for ALS which consists in you pouring water over you ... Read review

The symbolism of wasting water is far more powerful than the act itself. You'll comprehend that when you get the gist of brand identity/awareness. Don't relate to the use of capitals. by 1st2thebar
The 'wasting water' excuse bugs me too. Technically we can't waste water. It's called the water cycle! I think this was a great cause which was easy to get involved in, more people should just embrace the madness! Great review! x by jojodixon

I think the ice bucket challenges raised awareness which is obviously a good thing, but the cynic in me has to ask did everyone who took part actually make a donation? by brittle1906

Review of School Violence. How To Stop It? by sully_5

Advantages: social and moral aspects must be improved by institutions and teachers
Disadvantages: media, society and others often give bad teaching to young guys

School violence is something that is always existed but actually society is more confident and the freedom to do everything can lead towards unexpected situations inside schools and between students. This review will talk how society is becoming too much ... Read review

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by rolandrat123

Advantages: Good for any money raised, people had fun
Disadvantages: Silly fad, Publically nominating people to give to charity

...I do not think this has changed the way people give to charity in the long run - the ones who mainly do give do it quietly because they believe in a cause and do not feel the need to broadcast that they have given on Facebook. Ice Bucket Challeng ... Read review

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by bettyboo47

Advantages: good for raising extra money and awareness
Disadvantages: wont change anyhting in the long run

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Things may change.
