Hundreds of celebrities and sports stars across the US are getting soaked in the name of a good cause.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is aimed at helping strike out ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
People who participate are getting doused with ice water and then challenge other to do the same to raise awareness for the disease.

Alan Robertson also took credit for a spike in Duck Dynasty traffic when he led his parents’ vow renewal ceremony at the start of Season 4.
His wife Lisa said that the couple’s decision to leave pastoral ministry and join their extended family had been a tiring but rewarding decision.
Alan Robertson’s new look also has him eating his words, considering he was previously committed to a clean-shaven alternative.
“We all used to cut them off. But now, since they are such big stars and their beards are in their contracts, they have to keep them a certain length,” he said of Willie, Phil, Si and the other Duck Dynasty men.
“Their beards are about to get their own agent.”
Duck Dynasty’s Lisa Robertson revealed she was abused by a family member from ages 7 to 14.
In a recent interview with Closer Weekly, Alan Robertson’s wife said six other family members have come forward to say they were abused as well.

“I’ve had six of those cousins send me notes telling me it happened to them too. I don’t know if it was the same person [who abused them],” Lisa Robertson told the publication.
“But he had the same access to them.”
Lisa Robertson, 48, told the magazine she wrote of the abuse in the book The Women of Duck Commander so that others can be helped by her experience.
“My husband was the very first person I told,” she said.
“God took my mess and made a message out of it, and He wants me to get out there and show the healing part.”
Lisa Robertson said her biggest regret is that she didn’t speak out sooner.
Lisa and Alan Robertson, the “beardless brother”, were introduced on Duck Dynasty this year.
Duck Dynasty has a lot of Americans riveted to their TV sets and a lot of pundits scratching their heads about how this reality-based sitcom about an eccentric, tight-knit Louisiana clan of bearded, bandanna-ed men, along with their wives, children and family-business employees, came to captivate a nation.
The A&E’s reality show drew 11.8 million viewers on its Season 4 premiere night on August 14.
For a lot of the show’s Christian fans, it’s become a rare place on a mainstream cable or broadcast network where they can see characters openly expressing – and living – their faith in a positive context.
While most of the TV time follows the Robertsons navigating their daily lives of manufacturing duck calls at Duck Commander and managing marriages, parenthood and the quirks of each other’s personalities, each episode ends with the family gathering at dinner and saying a prayer.
In real life, faith is central to the Robertson family, since beardless eldest son Alan Robertson – who was off-camera for Duck Dynasty‘s first three seasons.

Alan Robertson has been pastor of White’s Ferry Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, for 20 years, and the rest of the clan is active in the congregation.
He also leads weekly voluntary devotional hours at the company headquarters.
With the on-screen arrival of Alan Robertson in Duck Dynasty Season 4, faith may come even more to the forefront.
In an interview with CBN’s 700 Club, Alan Robertson talked about making the decision to join the TV side of the family empire.
“My high-school years were just terrible, and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up. So, I was at the worst possible place – I was hiding in plain sight. I was in the church, but I wasn’t a Christian. I wasn’t living for Christ.”
He also spoke about traveling the nation with his father Phil Robertson to preach: “I call us the feather and the sledgehammer. I come in, and I get people laughing. I get their tickle-bone, because I’m kind of the humor guy.
“And then dad comes in with a sledgehammer – boom!– you know. <<This is what God has done for you. This is what our nation needs>>. Boom, boom, boom!”
Alan Robertson explained: “I really feel like God had prepared us for such a moment as this. And when America needs some family to say, <<Hey, we can make mistakes, you know, we can come from nothing – we can have all these things now, but ultimately none of it matters except that we’re saved, and we’re going to be in heaven with Christ forever>>.”
His wife, Lisa Robertson, was also interviewed in the segment, and here’s her thoughts on taking their message beyond the physical congregation: “To have a great church is good. But there is people out there that’s not ever going to darken the doors that we have here. And they may not ever darken the doors of any church building.
“And so, if we can give them a little taste of Christianity, a little taste of God, but in a fun way, to tell them that just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean that you can’t have loads of fun and laugh all the time and just enjoy what God’s given you.”
Duck Dynasty’s men are well known for their growing long, bushy beards, except one of them – new cast member and eldest son Alan Robertson.
Alan Robertson, 47, is a former minister who left his church to join Duck Dynasty in Season 4.
However, don’t expect him to follow that last tradition.
“I don’t want to get stuck with that look, I mean, are you kidding me?” the clean-shaven Alan Robertson said in an interview on The 700 Club.
Alan Robertson’s wife, Lisa, concurs with his feelings: “You know, when there’s things crawling out of your beard or whenever you’ve got food left from lunch or dinner, I don’t know, that just kind of grosses me out.”
He also opened up about his past, before he was a deeply faithful pastor. In fact, he was quite the wild child in his teen days.

“My high school years were just terrible and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up,” Alan Robertson admitted.
After graduating from high school, things spiraled even more out of control when Alan Robertson moved to New Orleans. But after a year, he realized he needed to shape up – and returned home to the loving embrace of parents Phil and Kay Robertson. He recommitted to his faith and Phil Robertson baptized him in the river behind their house.

Duck Dynasty airs Wednesdays at 10 PM on A&E.
Alan Robertson is the Duck Dynasty’s beardless one and the newest member of the cast.
Alan Robertson, who made his debut on Duck Dynasty‘s Season 4 premiere last week, is explaining in an interview on CBN News’ Friday edition of The 700 Club why he left his job as senior pastor of a large church to join the show.
The oldest son of Phil and Miss Kay Robertson ministered at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ for more than 20 years. He explains that some early teen craziness led him to the church early on.
“My high school years were just terrible and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up,” Alan Robertson tells CBN News White House Correspondent Jennifer Wishon, who traveled to West Monroe, Louisiana, to interview him and his wife, Lisa.
“So I was at the worst possible place – I was hiding in plain sight. I was in the church but I wasn’t a Christian. I wasn’t living for Christ.”
After he graduated, Phil Robertson told him he either had to shape up or move out. Alan Robertson moved out and went to New Orleans, where he found more trouble. After about a year, he realized he needed to move back home.

Alan Robertson made a commitment to follow Jesus Christ and Phil baptized him in the river behind their house.
And now Alan and Lisa Robertson, who do a lot of the family’s scheduling, have made a decision to be on-camera.
“I really feel like God had prepared us for such a moment as this and when America needs some family to say, <<Hey, we can make mistakes, you know. We can come from nothing – we can have all these things now but ultimately none of it matters except that we’re saved and we’re gonna be in heaven forever with Christ>>. “
Lisa Robertson notes: “To have a great church is good. But there is people out there that’s not ever going to darken the doors that we have here. And they may not ever darken the doors of any church building. And so if we can give them a little taste of Christianity, a little taste of God, but in a fun way to tell them that just because you are a Christian doesn’t mean that you can’t have loads of fun and laugh all the time and just enjoy what God’s given you.”
Alan Robertson adds: “We’re fairly young. If God gives us a lot more years on the Earth who knows where we’re gonna go from there in terms of what we’re gonna do?”
Just don’t expect Alan Robertson to grow a beard. Ever.
“I don’t want to get stuck with that look, I mean, are you kidding me?”
Plus, Lisa Robertson likes her husband clean-shaven.
“You know, when there’s things crawling out of your beard or whenever you’ve got food left from lunch or dinner, I don’t know, that just kind of grosses me out,” Lisa Robertson said.
Fans of the hit reality series Duck Dynasty are going to see the only clean-shaved Robertson brother featured on the show’s next season.
Alan and his wife Lisa Robertson will be joining the cast for the upcoming 4th season.
Alan Robertson, Duck Commander’s oldest son, likes to joke about his beardlessness as he’s chosen to stay behind the scenes and off the cameras.
He likes to think of himself as the original, after Phil Robertson of course. Alan has spent the past 22 years as a pastor but recently rejoined the team, with his primary responsibility being the one who schedules the cast’s seemingly endless public appearances.
Alan Robertson said: “It’s hard ’cause my thing has kinda been the different one, to not have to do that. The feeling is that once you go the long hair and the beard there’s no going back from that.”
Via the family’s official business they describe Alan Robertson this way: “Alan is the oldest son of the Duck Commander. He grew up hunting and fishing and helping build the foundation of the family business in the 1970’s & ’80’s. Back in the day, he and Phil would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of the truck! The sales pitch back then was the same as today: <<These calls are the best ‘cause they sound just like a duck!>>.

“He left the duck call business when he received the call for full time ministry in 1988 and now serves as a senior pastor in West Monroe, LA. Alan is still a part of the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors. He calls himself a Jacob in a family of Esaus.”
Alan Robertson also stated: “It’s like a sasquatch in reverse, cause you know, instead of the hairy sighting, I’m like the clean sighting.”
In a recent piece on 20/20, Willie Robertson stated that before the show Duck Commander sold around 60,000 of their patented duck calls a year. Now he says that number is way over 300,000. Taking that kind of growth into consideration, it’s obvious the Robertsons can use all the family help they can get – beard or not.
Via the Duck Commander Twitter page, a great photo of the ladies of the Duck empire was posted which includes Lisa Robertson.
A&E has reportedly been leery about including Alan Robertson because of how identifiable the beards are with the brand. But like the family says, it’s “Faith, Family, Ducks”.
