THE TOM BYRON FUNDRAISER RESULTS!

 Tom Byron Fundraiser: <br />A Thank You
Thanks to you we raised a total of $5,800 for Tom. (This brings the total raised by our fundraisers for golden age adult stars to over $18,000).

Tom sent us this message to thank you:

I want to express my gratitude to everyone who contributed to the greatest cause in human history – ME!

Seriously, thanks to all who donated, however big or small the gift. It’s nice to realize that there are people who appreciate us old fucks! To know my work over the past 30+ years has made an impact on many people’s sexual upbringing makes me very happy.

It’s been a great ride, thanks again for making the road that much smoother!

Yours in smut,
Tom Byron.

TOM BYRON FUNDRAISER!

Tom Byron: A Fundraiser

Tom Byron: A Fundraiser

The Golden Age Appreciation Fund is once again teaming up with The Rialto Report. This time in efforts to help veteran performer and director Tom Byron! 


Info from The Rialto Report page: 

Last week we released our podcast interview with Tom Byron, and since then have received feedback from so many of you.

We knew there was a lot of affection for Tom, but we’ve been overwhelmed by the response the interview elicited. Many of you sent us emails describing how you felt you’ve grown up with Tom since the early 1980s. You’ve followed his career over the years – seeing him change from an awkward teenager to a mullet-haired rocker and ultimately a veteran of the industry. It’s been like watching a favorite soap star evolve over time.

A number of you also asked if there was anything that could be done to help Tom today. For those who haven’t heard the podcast, (spoiler alert…) Tom is now driving for Uber but has had to rent a vehicle as he hasn’t been able to afford a down payment to buy a car. He’s working long hours on the road to save up, but it’s a very slow process.

As a result of your messages, we’re taking a pause on new Rialto Report content this week to instead launch a fundraiser to raise money for Tom’s car down payment.

Long time fans of The Rialto Report will know that we are joint founders of the The Golden Age Appreciation Fund that has raised over $12,000 to date for industry figures like Sharon Mitchell, Kay Parker, Eric Edwards, and George Payne.

We have a policy at The Rialto Report of not accepting any advertising or free merchandise because we want you to enjoy our site free of any commercial interference. If you’ve enjoyed any of our recent articles, photos, or podcasts and are able – and we absolutely understand that not everyone might be – we hope you’ll consider making a donation to Tom using the link below. No amount is too small. 

100% of the money raised will go directly to Tom.

Needless to say, Tom is very grateful for this initiative and wishes to convey his appreciation to everyone who has written to us and him since the podcast.

The fundraiser will be active until Easter weekend – Friday 14th April, 2017.

Thank you for your support. Seriously. We don’t take it for granted.

THIS FUNDRAISER IS NOW CLOSED! Thank you to everyone who supported!

Help needed for Bill Margold's memorial services

We are saddened by the loss of porn pioneer, historian and tireless fighter for free speech, William Margold. A fundraiser is underway to help the family with memorial services and those interested in donating can do so here.

There is also a documentary on Margold coming soon.
