Some of tech's biggest names have joined in on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which was was started in late July by Massachusetts resident and ALS patient Pete Frates.

The campaign has taken off since then, with participants nominating others to donate to the cause or dump ice water on their heads (or sometimes both). In that time, the ALS Association said Wednesday it's raised $5.7 million in donations, compared to $1.2 million during the same time period last year.
