Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
Earlier this week, pro wrestler and RAINN advocate Mick Foley was featured on ABC World News Tonight. The piece mentions Tori as being his inspiration to start volunteering for RAINN but the meat of the feature is all about Mick, the work he is doing for RAINN and the smashing success of his #10forRAINN campaign which has raised over $120,000 for the non-profit!
Congratulations to Mick and RAINN and thanks to everyone who donated and supported them over the past two months!
Tori has twittered her support for Mick Foley’s #10forRAINN campaign to raise funds for RAINN. To encourage people to give, Mick’s lined up a number of incentives, included autographed photographs, a phone call or even a visit from Mick himself. The campaign has a goal of raising $10,000 for RAINN by the end of April.
Check out this clip of Mick talking about the campaign below and, if you can help out, please do!
Thanks to Gary for the tip!
Wrestler and Toriphile Mick Foley appeared on the Daily Show this week and talks about his life and work with the ever-awesome Jon Stewart. This interview is full of Tori tidbits — including the fact that Mick is donating half the proceeds from his new book, Countdown to Lockdown, to RAINN. He also shares that he used to listen to one special Tori song before wrestling matches, and talks about his other philanthropic interests. Thanks to the many of you who sent this in:
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
Update: We’ve received clarification from Tori’s management that she will not be in attendance at this event. Tori is sponsoring it but will not be there. Still, it’s a worthy cause to support so attend if you can and donate if you can’t!
RAINN is celebrating the progress they’ve made fighting sexual assault and supporting victims of sexual assault with a fund-raising event in Washington DC on November 18th. Actress KaDee Strickland and pro wrestler Mick Foley will be the special guests in attendance. If you would like to join them, purchase tickets, or just make a donation to support the organization, at RAINN’s website.
Thanks to Alex F. and @ToriFan247 for pointing this in our direction!
Well, this sounds like an amazingly fun event: Toriphiles, including longtime fan Linda, are organizing a benefit party for RAINN on November 6 at Room in Manchester, England. The event will include fan performances, a Tori drag act, canapes, champagne, Tori-themed cocktails, and, of course, a chance to meet fellow Ears With Feet. Everyone who attends will be asked to give a donation, and all the money will go toward RAINN. The event is from 7 to 11 p.m. Those of you on Facebook can see all the details here. Many thanks to H for the tip!
As you may know if you read our Twitter, RAINN, the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization, is one of many organization vying for funding from the Pepsi Refresh Project.
RAINN is in the running to win $250,000 in grant funding to help expand their online hotline to serve Spanish-speaking victims of sexual abuse and you can help them reach that goal by voting for their idea at Pepsi Represh.
Voting ends at Midnight on September 30th so this is the last chance to help get them to the top. You can vote up to three times a day, once via each of these three means:
They’re currently in 17th place — let’s help get them up to the top!
Check out the article about Tori and RAINN by wrestling legend Mick Foley today on Slate.com. The article contains material from the “Meeting Tori Amos” chapter of Mick’s latest memoir Countdown To Lockdown, set for release this Friday, October 1st. The book will make you laugh (you want to read about Pom-Pom, you really do) and cry, plus there’s a cute piccie of Mick meeting Tori for the very first time. So be sure to grab a copy going into the weekend.
Pro wrestler Mick Foley has teamed up with RAINN to combat sexual violence. While visiting RAINN’s offices last December, he and his wife Colette announced that they would be donating half of the advance royalties from his upcoming memoir, “Countdown to Lockdown,” to RAINN. The other half, as he revealed on his blog will be going to help victims of sexual violence in Sierra Leone. Additionally, Mick has joined RAINN’s National Leadership Council and is training to be Online Hotline volunteer.
Lest you think this has nothing to do with Tori, Mick addresses the origins of his friendship with her in the memoir (that’s Mick and Colette in the photograph with Tori lifted from RAINN’s site), slated to be published in the Fall of 2010.

Temple Symonds is producing a performance of The Vagina Monologues in February 2010 in Glastonbury, CT, to benefit RAINN. Auditions are being held Sunday, December 6th, 2009.
Until the Violence Stops
When Temple Symonds was 21, she didn’t know that being forced to the ground and screamed at was abuse. “I knew it wasn’t normal behavior, but I didn’t call it abuse. I just knew I had to get out of there.”
Inspired by her twelve-year journey to understand the impact of abuse on her life, the yoga instructor is producing The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler at Sacred Rivers Yoga in Glastonbury, CT on February 13, 2010. The play is renowned for it’s inspirational impact in the fight against violence against women.
Symonds sees producing the play as an opportunity to help take the shame out of being abused. “By owning our experiences,” she said, “we can move past them and transform them into strong foundations for growth.”
Open auditions for sixteen female readers will be on Sunday December 6th, 2009 from 6-8 pm at Sacred Rivers Yoga. Auditions will consist of reading from the script and group exercises. Additionally, there are opportunities for men and women to volunteer behind-the-scenes for this fundraiser for RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network). For further information, contact Temple Symonds.
RAINN Over Houston is a concert benefiting RAINN that will be held in Houston in June 2009. The ambitious event, with a goal of raising $100,000 for RAINN, is being organized by local singer/songwriter Jennifer Grassman and her efforts so far have earned her a commendation from Tori. Congratulations to her!
Undented wishes Jennifer the best of luck in making this event a success and encourages anyone who can to help her out! Make a donation, join their E-Team, or just offer support by staying informed on their website or on Myspace.
And if you’re organizing a RAINN benefit and need help spreading the word, we’re more than happy to give you a plug here — just let us know.
Thanks to Agatha and Xavier for bringing this to our attention!
