Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg has tipped a bucket of ice over his head... all in the name of charity.

The billionaire - who uploaded the video to Facebook (of course) - not only completed the chilling task but nominated fellow billionaire Bill Gates.

"Yesterday, Governor Chris Christie challenged me to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I accepted his challenge and now I’m challenging Bill Gates, Sheryl Sandberg and Reed Hastings next," Zuckerberg says in the video.

Unlike similar internet crazes like Neknominate this challenge is all in the name of charity.

So far the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $US2.3 million for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis research.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has become somewhat of an internet sensation with likes of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake getting involved.
