Pennsylvania Landscapers take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and become the webs latest viral sensation.

Dover, PA (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

The social media frenzy surrounding the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has just enjoyed another uptick thanks to central Pennsylvanias Hively Landscapes for accepting the challenge, and spreading the word! Upwards of 100,000 likes and over 170,000 shares, and counting, qualify central PAs leaders in landscape design as the proud owners of the latest viral phenomenon surrounding the challenge aimed at ALS awareness. Watch the video here. The ALS Association has reported nearly $80M in donations thus far as a result of the ice bucket challenge taken by Hively Landscapes and countless others.

Aside from getting soaked for a good cause, its really important to us to spread the word and drive donations for ALS research, said Owner and General Manager, Ted Ventre, so getting wet and raising awareness is a win-win. He added, Its always good to rally the community around something critical like ALS research, and its definitely a bonus when it gains traction even outside of our team and community.

Hivelys viral Facebook post was complemented by a separate challenge from its General Manager, Ted Ventre. Each employee that dared stand below the tractor bucket filled to the brim with ice water would warrant an extra $15 donated per employee from the company. On top of that, each Facebook like or share would move the Landscaping specialists to pledge an additional $1 a piece (with a contribution limit of $1,110). The limit was certainly met and hundreds of thousands have now seen the video thats making headlines as a result.
