A Bucket Of Remains

The Ice bucket challenge is everywhere. Celebrities from Victoria secret models to politicians to novelists. But one group is missing and for a very good reason.

The conflict in Gaza continues every day and, though I don't want to get into a political debate with anyone about who's right or wrong, it is time people really thought about what the people of Gaza have to suffer each day. 

Palestine is suffering from a serious water shortage and the rubble that was once the Gaza strip is only adding to the problem. The little water they had is now too dirty to drink safely. So it's no wonder that the ice bucket challenge isn't too popular there. 

Team Palestina, a page, have posted this video with a very simple message. They don't ask for money. They don't ask for people to copy the challenge in their name. They just ask for people to acknowledge the day to day suffering of the people who live there.
