(PIX11) -- The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $22 million despite negative feedback.

It's only been a couple of weeks and some say the Ice Bucket Challenge is annoying, celebrity-driven and not actually helping victims of ALS.

But supporters say the viral challenge is working because it's silly and fun. ALS patients and people who have lost loved ones to the disease have shown their appreciation for the challenge through videos online.
