The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised incredible awareness and SpokaneFAVS fully supports it!

In that spirit, we invite you to our own challenge. The #FAVSChallenge dares people to partake in at least one random act of kindness within one week from the day they were challenged. The challenge must be on video. Be creative! Those who fail must donate $25 to SpokaneFAVS. We hope this will inspire a wave of goodwill across Spokane, the Inland Northwest and beyond!

If you accept the challenge, you must then challenge three other people.

Be sure to use #FAVSChallenge on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media accounts you use.

Those in the video, Board Member Skyler Oberst, and Executive Director Tracy Simmons, both made a contribution to ALS research.
