As everyone with a Facebook account knows, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has become incredibly viral. Some of the biggest producers/DJs in the world have taken part in the challenge. The challenge was brought to deadmau5's attention, but he decided not to partake in the viral stunt. Rather than dump ice on his head, the star producer chose to directly donate $10,000 to ALS research. 

Deadmau5 is one of the most controversial producers in the dance music industry, but this great deed is something that everyone can agree on. At EDM.com, we're always happy when people in the industry give back to the community. In this case, deadmau5 has shown a heart of gold. He has the money to make a difference, and he chose to donate some of his hard-earned cash to a worthy cause.
