According to the ALS Association they raised $4 million in donations between July 29th and August 12th.  That's compared to $1.12 million during the same time period last year.

ALS Association members say they are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support from those people who have been doused, made a donation, or both. Contributions further The Association's mission to find a cure for ALS while funding the highest quality of care for people living with the disease.
