    Hi! I’m a blogger from a spanish blog on psychology. I want to share your infographic as a part of a post that I’m making about the psychological aspects of ice bucket challenge. Can I use it?
    I can host a copy of the infographic in order to avoid the hotliking.
    Obviously you will be cited and linked.

    Thanks in advance, Guido Corradi from @GuidoBCor in Twitter : )
