After being around here for some few months now, I figured that instead of sitting on my bum waiting for the much fabled "habituation" to happen, I might as well do something constructive to the benefit of all Tinnitus sufferers. I'm considering donating some money to a deserving party in the field of solving this horrible affliction. Considering it's even harder now to acquire money than before Tinnitus popped up it's ugly head, I have some requirements. I would like to donate to a party that: Focuses on CURATIVE research rather than developing managing techniques. I think, while the managing techniques might help for some, it is a waste of money better spend on actually making progress. The good news coming from this has a much higher therapeutic value to me than e.g. TRT could ever provide. Doesn't just reel in money to feed their board members, but does actual research and not just maintaining the status quo (this one might be tough to determine). Has the best chance to deliver results/breakthrough on the shorter term rather than the longer term (might also be tough to determine). As far as I know, there are five "big" parties active in the field, of which the first three sound promising. Action on Hearing Loss. Hearing Health Foundation. Tinnitus Research Initiative. ATA. BTA. Did I miss any? Thoughts or ideas? Also, please state what your thoughts are about contributing to this cause.
