It’s hard to believe that the Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised funds for the ALS Association and research for Lou Gehrig's disease, was two years ago.
Now the latest viral charity cause sweeping the internet has been in aid of war veterans. It hopes ‘to honour those who serve and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment.’ The 22 push-ups are for the twenty two war veterans who commit suicide every day.
Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, John Krasinski, The Rock and Chris Evans have all done the #22PushupChallenge and spoken out for the cause.

#22PushUpChallenge Raising awareness for our 22 US vets who commit suicide daily. If you're a vet and you're going thru it, just know we're thinking about you and you're not alone. Be strong, have faith, keep fighting that good fight and there's always a better day. I challenge my boys @kevinhart4real and @justinjames99 as well as our history making first black OLYMPIC Gold medalist in swimming @swimone13. Thanks to my bud @prattprattpratt for passin' the torch and Hobbs the beast for the bad breath kisses. I'll take em all day ðŸ˜‚ðŸ'ªðŸÂÂÂ?¾ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¸
