50 Cent is the latest celebrity who took part in fundraising activities for charity. While many celebrities, athletes and public figures have joined the ALS ice bucket challenge by making donations or spreading awareness to the degenerative disorder by dumping icy water on their head, the rapper mentioned an unusual challenge to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to read a page of "Harry Potter" novel.

"This is a special ASL-ELS challenge for you, Floyd! If you can read one full page of a Harry Potter book, I'll give $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to," he says in a clip posted on Facebook on Thursday, August 21. "F**k the bucket of ice, man!" he added before tossing a bucket of icy water from the balcony.

In a caption for the clip, the rapper explained the challenge, writing, "Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f**king up. lmao."

Mayweather has also been nominated by magician Criss Angel to do the ice bucket challenge. So far, there is no response from the boxer yet.

As reported by New York Times, the A.L.S. Association said on Thursday morning that they had received $41.8 million in donations from July 29 until August 21. The money will be used to fund researches to find treatment and provide support for people with ALS.

"While the monetary contributions are so absolutely incredible, and we'll be able to really make a considerable difference in moving the mission of the A.L.S. Association forward, the real fortunate part of the Ice Bucket Challenge is the amount of awareness it has raised for the A.L.S. cause in general," said a spokesperson for the non-profit foundation, Carrie Munk. "It puts us in a whole different ballgame to find treatments and cures for this disease."
