(MyFoxBoston.com) -- The ALS Association tells FOX 25 they've raised $1.35 million nationally from July 29 to August 11.

A spokesperson for the association said they raised $22,000 during the same period in 2013.

The surge in donations comes after the "Ice Bucket Challenge" took social media by storm. The challenge calls for users to accept the challenge from their friends within 24 hours or donate $100 to the fight against ALS.
