Remy Conner: Getting OUT of an Ice Bucket

Name: Remy Connor

What is your job? Magician, Actor, Public Speaker

What social causes are most important to you? General Equality

What charities do you support – and how? ALSA, Relay for Life, World Wildlife Fund
I donate time, money and raise awareness. For ALS - Remy Connor does an escape for the ice bucket challenge. With legs and feet bound, he steps into a garbage bag filled with ice water and escapes.

Why do you have a passion for this one in particular, is there a personal tie? My grandmother passed away from cancer.

Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved? I believe that people should research and find a cause to stand behind. Studies have shown that people with something to believe in lead better lives, and this is an easy way to make not only your life, but the lives of others better. What is better than people helping other people?

How would you define social responsibility? By starting with the bare minimum, we can inspire others to donate time and money. Especially with social media, we have a common duty to unite and make people aware of the issues that are important in our lives.
