Keli Richards Fundraiser – A Thank You

Keli Richards Fundraiser – A Thank You

Two weeks ago, following our interview with 1980s adult film star Keli Richards, we launched a fundraiser for her.

Thanks to your generous donations, we have since raised over $2,000 for her.

When we contacted her this week to give her the result of the fundraiser, she was overwhelmed by your kindness. She has asked us to share the following to thank all of you who donated:

I would like to extend all my gratitude to all those who donated money to help me begin rebuilding my life.  I am humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity. Not only did you help me, you also supported and loved me more than I could ever have imagined.

I have just read all your comments and I can’t stop crying. I feel so thankful to those people who have generously helped me. I know I have made my mistakes: I take full responsibility for them, and hope that I can be an example to someone else who feels they will never be good enough. Acceptance is the answer to ALL of my problems today.

I appreciate your words as you have been encouraging and empowering. You spoke from the heart and with pure honesty. You helped me to accept myself and my circumstances just the way they are, and to start to work on some overdue changes that needed to be made. I recently was offered a full-time position back in the medical field. I get to put my scrubs back on. I have also been very fortunate through word of mouth, thanks to all of you, to be getting work in the industry and I’m having fun. I can give a little enjoyment to some while using my caring for others. I came back because I’m not ashamed of who I am anymore and just maybe I can help some of the other ladies from making the mistakes I made. The past made me who I am today and I think I might have  found part of my purpose.

If God would grant one wish come true it would make me very glad to be able to express in words a special tribute to my dad. “While his life on earth has ended and he’s now with God above I will always remember him in the memory of his love.” 

Thank you

With all my love, hugs and kisses,

Keli Richards.

    Keli ; great to hear things are going in the right direction for you, clearly you deserve it because you are a fighter. I am glad I was able to contribute and help you get a new start. Good luck in your medical career , wish you were my nurse. Please keep making movies for us to watch, you look great!! Adult movies are adult entertainment and you should be proud of your film career. You have provided great fantasies for people like myself and that is what entertainment is all about. Hope you continue to entertain us!! Be Well!!!

    Hello Kelly :

    This is the first time I ve heard this interview. I am a fellow Dedhamite and we had shared some time together. Since all these years ( when u left to be a model) I ve have always remembered your beautiful smile , hair and your funny personality!

    I ve have always wondered what had happened to you and I had heard the stories but now that I ve heard from your own words ; I can only say God Bless you and I wish only the best for your future !

    We all must make what we can out of life. Some have advantages some don’t but no one has the right to judge ! That is only for the one who gave us life !

    I hope you are doing well since I ve heard this interview. I still live in Dedham and thank you for sharing your time with me both in our past and with this present time !

    God Bless
