With the #ALSIceBucketChallenge social media campaign still growing, ALS research has seen a significant increase in donations.

Donations to former Saint Steve Gleason’s foundation “Team Gleason” have doubled their normal average this week, the foundation's executive director Clare Durrett said.

The ALS Association told the Washington Post it’s raised $1.35 million in the past two weeks, versus $22,000 in the same period last year.

A number of Saints players and coaches have joined the campaign.

Below is a collection of #ALSIceBucketChallenges by the Black and Gold.
