WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Two more WUSA9 staff members took the "Ice Bucket Challenge."

Sports anchor Kristen Berset challenged anchor Bruce Johnson and First Alert Meteorologist Erica Grow after being doused with the ice-cold water.

The idea is simple: Take a bucket of ice water, dump it over your head, record it and post the video on social media.

This ice bucket challenge is raising awareness and money for causes such as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The fundraising phenomenon asks those willing to douse themselves to challenge others to do the same within 24 hours. If they don't, they must make a donation to a certain charity. Each person who participates nominates more friends, who nominate more friends, who nominate still more friends, which explains why the trend has exploded.
