Mick Foley talks about charity work he’s done for Jimmy Rave and in honor of the late Daffney

WWE Hall Of Famer was interviewed on Rick Bassman’s “Talking Tough” podcast. During the interview, Foley talked about some of the work he has done to help Jimmy Rave and the late Daffney’s charity of choice.

Here is what Foley said:

“The young lady I was friends with was Daffney. Her real name was Shannon. She struggled for a long time. She went on Instagram Live. She was talking about ending her life, and then the next morning she did. I saw that her mom was asking people to contribute to Nomi, the Georgia chapter. That was the inspiration. I was thinking, ok, by the time I started doing them, I guess it was on the 7th or 8th of September, so I have 21 or 22 shows. If I can raise $200 a night, that will be 4 grand, and instead, we raised 15.

So, I’m going to try to do that everywhere I go with the exception of December 5th. I’ll pick out a different organization. Last night I was able to raise $520 for Jimmy Rave who lost both of his legs to MRSA, two amputations. We’re looking at a 100 grand medical bill. Obviously, $520 is a drop in the bucket, but at least Jimmy knows that the wrestling world is thinking of him. That’s what I’ll try to do. Everytime I go on stage, I’ll find a good charity. I will probably come into the holidays with me and my Santa background, I will probably just look for local organizations that help children in need this time of the year.”
