ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Watch celebrity families get soaked

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is still going! In fact, we got challenged by our friends at Chatelaine—watch Editor-in-Chief Sasha Emmons and me get soaked by our kids on behalf of Today's Parent.  Though controversial for a host of reasons, the campaign’s viral videos have reportedly raked in $31.5 million for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) since July 29 (versus $1.9 million this time last year). And the celebrity families are loving it. Here are the latest, creative celebrity-family ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos!
