Welcome to Ricky’s Revolution Non-Profit Organization Dedicated to Saving Lives
We are a 501(c)3 approved national outreach program developed to help runaway and homeless youth, victims of domestic violence, and victims of sexual abuse reach a place of safety as quickly as possible. "Ricky" is a small stuffed monkey embroidered with hotline contact numbers and given out free to shelters and to anyone alone on the streets. By providing information for safety and shelter options from national hotline numbers including rape crisis, runaway hotline, safe houses, and domestic violence hotline, we encourage, educate, and empower those who need direction and movement towards healing.
Our first Campaign to raise money for the birth of Ricky was a huge success!
OUR NEW CAMPAIGN IS AFOOT
We are building Shelter Teams in every state in the United States
and our Street Team is on the MOVE.
Our Ricky is taking over the streets! Any streets where he can be tucked into the pocket or arm of any lost individual in the USA. The arms of Ricky give victims help and hope.
- We give a tangible reminder that help is available.
- Ricky is a source of safety information and a source of comfort that establishes trust between victims and professionals.
- We bring awareness to the general population the issues of abuse, rape, runaway youth, the homeless and incest need attention now.
Our heartfelt thanks to all donors! We would especially like to thank the Putnam Foundation and Kate’s Women’s Fund with Santa Fe Community Foundation who gave generous donations matching our individual donors.
Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
We are hitting the streets and going into shelters, giving hope and healing to the homeless, lost and abused.

Jeannie reads an excerpt from LAYLA in support of Ricky's Revolution. In the reading, Jeannie tells the story of an abduction and rape where she lost her own Ricky, the little stuffed monkey that brought her a sense of security and peace in a messed up world of incest, rape, death, and all the chaos that comes with homelessness. Jeannie speaks for those who cannot speak for themselves, as do the Ricky monkeys being circulated throughout the United States, and as does her incredible book, LAYLA.
