On Wednesday, Japanese-Taiwanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro took on the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness and funds for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig's disease.

In the video, the 40-year-old did not utter a single word and expressed his thoughts via subtitles. His manager later explained that Takeshi used water from a dehumidifier for the challenge, so that clean water would not be wasted. With hopes that everyone would take initiative to care for the less fortunate in society, the actor chose not to nominate any celebrity.

At the same time, many artistes around the globe have also taken part in the charitable cause. Dressed in an extravagant fur jacket, Hong Kong actress Carina Lau was complimented by netizens on her poise, even after getting drenched by a bucket of ice water.

Another celebrity who gained widespread attention for the Ice Bucket Challenge is Hong Kong singer-songwriter G.E.M Tang. As the 23-year-old wore a white t-shirt, the bikini under her top was 'exposed' after she got soaked with water. The video on YouTube earned over 650,000 views in less than 24 hours.

Of course they would get more views, but this is not a wet T-shirt contest, it's suppose to be a charity. Kudos to Takeshi Kaneshiro for not nominating anyone and being considerate for those who are aware that some people don't have water. Kudos :)
