Journalist Starts Different Kind of Bucket Challenge to Draw Attention to Gaza

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge has taken tvnewsers by storm–or freeze–this summer, and a journalist in Gaza was so inspired by it that he started a different challenge to to draw awareness to the plight of Gazans.

“I have to do something and to send a message all over the world about Gaza,” said journalist Ayman al Aloul, who started the “Rubble Bucket Challenge” on Saturday. Aloul said he first looked for water to use, but its scarcity made it too important to dump over people’s heads. The challenge has gained some social media buzz; the Facebook page has over 3,000 likes and hashtags #dustbucketchallenge and #remainsbucketchallenge are making the rounds.
