I’ve been thinking about this for a week or two and I think this would be a great aproach on achieving a little bit of exposure in addition to some money for the foundation.
One big problem that we face in dealing with this condition as individuals and as a collective is the little exposure to the outside world, the academic and the mundane, this condition has. I’ve seen a lot ofpages on that site which have gathered absurds amounts of money for something as common as a hip surgery; let’s just imagine how many eyes looking and cash running for the foundation we could get by exposing the damage that this Triad of Pharmaceuticals (5ar Inhibitors, SSRIs and Isotretinoin) has done to our lives.
We could even go one step further and aside of the gofundme page we could raise a youtube channel exposing how much damage this condition can bring to a persons life - from not being able to function on bed to loosing a job or a marital bond.
By doing the latter, we could raise enough awareness to get on a well known podcast (In my defense, we could do this right now. Some mods from here could contact centers like Free Domain Radio, Stefan’s Molyneux podcast, and hop right in.) or media outlet.
An Idea of a video could b by starting to explain this condition, not in a medical way but how each of us got into this mess first so we can do the former later, so we can later show testimonies of the people affected - Men, Women and, legally speaking, Children.
It’s a shame the foundation and this forum is doing the best to solve this issue without reaching towards the rest of the world.
