Promo Marketing Nominees Welcome ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Before accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge last month from Samantha Gotlib, vice president of sales at Charles River Apparel, Sharon, Mass., Nikki Stella, Promo Marketing's group president/publishing director and the rest of the Promo Marketing and Print+Promo teams nominated coworkers as well as industry folks and organizations to reciprocate. Many of them have done their own ice bucket challenge and/or donated to ALS.
As of last week, donations have reached more than $100 million and ranged from $1 to $200,000, according to The ALS Association.
“People have responded with such generosity it is truly remarkable and we couldn’t be more appreciative, said Barbara Newhouse, president and CEO of The ALS Association. “These donations will truly help fuel our fight against ALS in ways that were never before possible.”
