The “Lemon Face Challenge” Is the Newest Dare Raising Money for Charity
The Ice Bucket Challenge raised $115 million for ALS four years ago. Now the “Lemon Face Challenge” is raising money to fight a type of brain cancer called DIPG. You just record your reaction while eating a lemon wedge . . . challenge someone else to do it . . . and donate to a group called Aubreigh’s Army.
You have to eat a lemon wedge and record yourself reacting to how sour it is. Then you challenge at least one other person to do it. It’s a little easier than dumping a bucket of ice water over your head. But if you don’t want to do it, you’re supposed to donate to a group called Aubreigh’s Army to help fight DIPG.DIPG is a type of brain cancer that attacks the brain stem. And it tends to affect little kids. (It stands for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.)
