Tori's RAINN

Fans and non-fans alike can, for the most part, agree that Tori Amos is a fairly odd individual. Just watch some of her interviews and it's unarguable. Hey, I'm not doggin' it -- I am typically drawn to odd people! That's one of the reasons I think Tori's such an amazing artist. Despite her oddity even Tori's critics can't deny her positive contribution to the world. Specifically, her benefit foundation RAINN. If you aren't familiar with this extraordinary organization, it is The Rape, Abuse & Incest Nation. It facilitates programs that attempt to prevent sexual assault. It also aids victims of sexual assault and makes sure that attackers--those who have raped helpless victims--are not overlooked and are punished to the full extent of the law. Inside, you'll find statistics, counseling resources, prevention tips, news and more.

If you or someone you know have been a victim of rape don't let it go unnoticed. Please visit the RAINN website to find out more.

You can also contribute to the life of the foundation by visiting the RAINN online store. Here you can purchase gifts and merchandise, the proceeds of which are 100% given to the foundation.
