LAURIE SMITH COULD USE OUR HELP!




Golden Age actress Laurie Smith has started a Gofundme page trying to raise money to replace a medical device she desperately needs to help control the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and keep her healthy.

We've seen her work in Olympic Fever, Sex Wars, Ultra Flesh, Blonde Heat and many more. She is only asking for $1500 but has only managed to gather less than a third of that in 2 months. Let's get busy, donate as we can and help spread the word so we can not only get her to her goal but surpass it so that she can get whatever else she may need to help keep her healthy and comfortable.

Donate here!

Eric Edwards thank you

To all of you who have contributed or commented on my behalf… thank you so much. You have not only warmed my heart, given me hope, but have helped me through a rather difficult time in my life.  At the age of 70 and having my son leave the nest with his girlfriend– Hey, it had to happen sometime, right?– I found myself in a bit of a pickle with bills and such until I can find a suitable roommate.

I also want to thank The Rialto Report and The Golden Age Appreciation Fund for putting up this fundraiser for me. At first, I was a little embarrassed to ask for help, but they convinced me that there would be people out there that would want to contribute to my cause. And, it seems that I got an overwhelming response.



I also want to give a special thanks to Annie Sprinkle for giving her final “Tit Print” to the lucky fan who received it.  I’ve never seen one, but I hear that they are VERY interesting (And so are her REAL boobies)!!!

Through my lengthy career, I have felt such love and admiration not only from my crews and cast, but also from my fans. It’s been a pretty wild and crazy ride to say the least! Now, after battling cancer twice, I just kick back and enjoy the memories in my mountain home, or feed the geese at our local pond, or climb up to a lookout rock and commune with Mother Nature. Also, with an occasional and enjoyable visit from a younger generation film crew that comes up to the fresh mountain air to interview me. In fact, if you would like to see what an old friend put together for my 65th birthday:





Somehow, five years later, these wonderful contributions from everyone makes me feel like I’m having a birthday all over again. Perhaps, if you look closely, you might even recognize some of the movies that the stills came from.

To those of you who have been waiting for an autobiography from me, I began one, got halfway through before my memory began to fail. Perhaps a co-writer can jump start the Golden Age for me again.


And, if anyone would like to contact me personally, I’d love to hear from you.  I answer all of my email– robeverett@sbcglobal.net
Sincerely,
Eric Edwards

ERIC EDWARDS FUNDRAISER IS NOW CLOSED!

Thank you to all of the generous donors and everyone who helped support the fundraiser for Eric Edwards. We will announce the grand total and the list of amazing donors shortly.

Once again, your generosity is astounding and mere "thank you's" can't fully express our appreciation for the support of TGAAF.

ERIC EDWARDS FUNDRAISER


Eric Edwards is a true trailblazer of the adult film industry.

He started his adult career in the 1960s and stayed in the business for four decades. He starred in silent loops and narrative features. He moved between acting and directing, softcore and hardcore, and the East and West coast industries.

Since retiring from the business, things haven't been easy for Eric. He lost his home and has struggled with cancer. But he's doing better now and living in a modest apartment an hour outside of Los Angeles. Until recently he has shared this home with one of his sons with whom he has split the living expenses.

We recently learned from Eric that his son has to move out and as a result Eric is grappling to make ends meet. He fears losing his apartment and having to live in his tent as he has done in the past when times have been tough.

Eric is arranging to bring in a roommate to help share costs but until that happens, he needs some help so he can keep his home.

This month through the Golden Age Appreciation Fund we are raising money for Eric, and are reprising our 2013 interview with him. We are also pleased to present below a selection of rare photos from Eric's personal collection.

Please consider donating whatever you can to Eric through the Golden Age Appreciation Fund.

The fundraiser will be active until Friday June 24th, 2016 and 100% of the money raised will go directly to Eric.

And for every $25 donated we will send you a golden age adult film DVD and a issue of Cinema Sewer magazine (while supplies last).

(Note: due to extreme shipping prices outside the US we can only ship these 'perks' within the United States)

This fundraiser is now closed. Thank you so much to all that donated!

For more information on Eric Edwards please listen his episode of The Rialto Report podcast

THE SHARON MITCHELL FUNDRAISER IS OVER

Thanks to your generous support we raised $3,300 to help Sharon get back on her feet.
 
Message from Sharon Mitchell

Happy New Year and thank you all so much for all of your contributions, both individually and collectively.  For those of you who know me, you know how difficult it is to ask for help.

This act of kindness truly warmed my heart and soul. I should have my motorcycle back this week, and be mobile once again.

My gratitude is without bounds, you have truly made this the Happiest New Year!

Much Love,
Dr. Mitch

SHARON MITCHELL FUNDRAISER

We recently heard that one of our all-time favorites, Golden Age actress Miss Sharon Mitchell, has recently been going through a very tough time.

Since the end of her AIM organization a few years ago, she moved into a rural area in the country outside of Los Angeles where she has struggled to find work.

After several years of looking, Mitch finally found work with a nearby AIDS advisory service this summer, but shortly after she started work there she crashed her motorbike. She was badly hurt in the accident – and the bike was almost a complete write-off. 

Making matters worse, she needed the bike to commute to her job, and Sharon has not been able to afford the cost of the repairs so the bike remains with the repair shop.

Without the bike, Mitch will not be able to stay in work – and she badly needs the income to survive.

We’d like to help get Mitch back on her feet, and appeal to everyone this holiday season to assist us achieve this goal.

Please give generously and together we can make a difference.


In the spirit of giving TGAAF would like to give back to
 those who donate as a token of our appreciation.

Donations of $30 or more will receive a vintage adult magazine and a copy of Cinema Sewer (while supplies last).

Donations of $50 or more will receive the vintage magazine and a classic adult movie DVD (while supplies last). 

Donations of $60 or more will receive the vintage magazine and 2 classic adult movie DVDs (while supplies last). 

Please note that these items are selected at random and are being paid for and provided by TGAAF and that all monies collected will go directly to Sharon Mitchell. Due to the high costs of international shipping these incentives are unfortunately only available to ship within North America.
  
This fundraiser runs from December 6, 2015 to January 1, 2016. Let's help start Sharon's new year off on a very positive note. We will announce the grand total and the names of the generous donors when the fundraiser is complete. If you wish to remain anonymous please let us know. 

To learn more about Sharon Mitchell from the woman herself listen to the excellent podcast at THE RIALTO REPORT.

THIS FUNDRAISER IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you so much to all who supported!
