When he finally got the opportunity to meet Amos in 2008, she turned him onto an organization with which he would become very involved: RAINN.

2. Foley is a member of the National Leadership Council for the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), an organization for which Amos was the original spokesperson.

Thanks to my friends @RAINN01 for the cake!

4. He's also an online volunteer counselor, having spoken to hundreds of survivors in his first year alone. The number is still growing.

Thank you for being dedicated supporters of survivors and RAINN @AdamRichman and @realmickfoley!

15. But he's kinder than Santa. Foley gave his furniture to a Long Beach family who lost all of theirs in Hurricane Sandy. He then invited himself over for dinner so he could “eat at his old table one last time.”

Here's a photo of Foley and Alexandra Gialanzé, a member of that Long Beach family.

17. And not only does he watch Boy Meets World...

Wow @daniellefishel - watching #BoyMeetsWorld with my kids, and some of these episodes are so touching! Got a little misty a couple times :)
