The exhibit includes the blue plastic bucket Jeanette Senerchia used to begin the "Ice Bucket Challenge" social media phenomenon, which ultimately raised more than $100 million to fight ALS. The bucket is displayed in the exhibit beside an alms box from the 1800s that people used to raise money for charities.
