    My longer interview with David is on YouTube now, if anyone is interested.




    Just noticed an anonymous donor gave $1000, a few hours ago - great!

    That is just brilliant.He needs all the help he can get.it has given me great satisfaction to contribute to this campaign.i will put in another contribution before weekend,I feel it is like getting a punch at pace. IT only deserves small letters,It has been so damaging and I will be praying for David Tuller also,even a prayer a day from those who pray will hopefully pull down the architects of this travesty to their rightful place. I'm so glad to see that the money total is still rising.

    I posted this on the thread Updated Appeal from David Tuller. I hope it's alright to post it here too, just in case it's missed by anyone who can help who may only be reading this thread.

    Thank you, everyone! It's so exciting to see the community come together and make this happen for David, and that David is fighting for us. I'm forever grateful for everyone who is doing what they can to change this, and to make it better, for us and my heart is with everyone who can't.

    Amazing! I could only donate 25$, but with so many people doing just that ( plus the bigger donors), look what has just happened! - we have all come together to fight the cause which seriously we should not have had to do. I thank god that David is willing and able to do this for us for another year! We'll all be dancing on Weasels grave when he and his cronies are showed up for what they are - perverse ego centred maniacs that should not be in the helping profession. Ive lost my life to this illness because of these people and I want my pound of flesh!!

    It may well be July, but I'm sure there will be further ways to contribute practically and/or financially to David's work over the next year as personal funds allow. Maybe more tax-efficiently for UK workers via events hosted/linked with charities... @Jo Best , @charles shepherd, @Keela Too, @BurnA.
    Just let the community know David.

    If David decides to do this again next year, I'm sure the community will be there for him.

    Yep. Only suggestion I have for that is to get the fund drive started earlier, so it isn't a rush job.

    I think it being a rush job might have contributed to people contributing so quickly and there being several larger transfers.

    For some reason that made me laugh probably too much.

    @Wolfiness - Thank you for your graphs, they've been a thing of beauty
