A REAL challenge… and you don’t need an ice bucket

Image credit: WikipediaHere’s a REAL challenge: Have someone blow a whistle into your ear for 24 hours straight, or donate $100 to the American Tinnitus Association.

I’m only kidding about the whistle… but for many people, that’s what tinnitus is like. All the time. So after you’ve done the ice bucket challenge and donated money to fight ALS, consider donating a little to fight tinnitus and help find and fund a cure.

Tinnitus affects 50 million Americans with a ringing in the ears that never, ever stops. In many cases, it gets progressively worse as you get older. It robs you of peace and sleep, and in many cases it increases anxiety and depression.

I’ve had it since 2003, and haven’t experienced a moment of silence since then.

There are new treatments on the horizon, but as of yet there’s no cure and no treatment that helps everyone.
