      Because of you Danny Boy's memory will live on and make a difference! You started his fundraiser all on your own.

      And now? Just look what happened.

      A first time tinnitus forum fundraiser in Danny's name is now a reality for the BTA towards a student grant!

      If Ed had not done this...

      Thank you. I am not going to forget.:thankyousign:

      Oh this is my first started thread!!

      After everything you have done I pale into insignificance. You’re a genuine kind-hearted soul Starthrower.

      Ed, I owe you a big thank you. If it wasn't for you starting Danny's fund, I'd still be lurking around TT looking for something I could do. It's people like you that make Tinnitus Talk stand heads above the other support groups.

      He is dead. RIP. Goddamn. We need to start getting very serious and proactive. There are existing technologies going though trials, as well as existing clinics claiming to be the answer for this.

      NOT ONE MORE. ATA, BTA. Get serious. I'm serious. Follow suite. The time is now. Jesus Christ!

      Do we even have an official on Daniel? Unrelated but I named my son Daniel.

      It's ridiculous that it takes someone's actual death to get people to take more action.

      But nonetheless, huge thanks to @Ed209 and everybody who donated!

      @Ed209 You already know I think you are awesome - but thanks again for everything you've done and are doing. The tinnitus community is very lucky to have you.

      Maybe we can all get together to plan something for next year? We learned a lot from Ed's success with Danny's fund.

      @Starthrower Great idea! We should definitely plan something for next year.
      Some promising research going from several angles at the moment, definitely reason to keep pushing!

      Thanks @Samantha R.

      I see a problem with so many different donations going to several different areas. If we could have one bulk fundraiser that would hopefully produce a greater amount to donate towards either one cause or two, but I would like to have a portion also donated for Tinnitus Talk.

      I do not like the sites where they ask for too much personal information to donate. If we keep it here on Tinnitus Talk it is much easier for those to donate - simply.

      Just ideas in my mind.
