Friday the 13th: The Film Franchise Joins 'Scares That Care'

It's all fun and entertainment for us here at the website when we write about the greatest slasher franchise in the world. Fans visit our website from all over the globe to get their Friday the 13th and Jason Voorhees fix for the love of the films and the horror genre. That being said, we want to discuss a very real and serious cause that benefits children diagnosed with various sicknesses.

Scares That Care is charitable organization that has tasked the horror community to help donate whatever they can to help these children in need. Below is a message from found Joe Ripple about the organization's mission:

"Scares That Care!" is a charity like no other. By uniting the genre fan base of horror films, Halloween, Haunted Houses, Paranormal and Spooky novels, we hope to be able to give back to the children of our communities who are going through serious medical issues. We do so without any thoughts of ourselves or personal gains, coming up with contests, dinners, events and other ideas in order to raise money for those who need it.

We have recently expanded our cause in two other areas; We have partnered with horror icon Kane Hodder ("Friday the 13th, Hatchet") to create a special fund for child victims suffering from burn injuries. Our affinity for all "Scream Queens" has afforded us the opportunity to create "Scares For Pairs," a special fund for ladies affected by breast cancer.

We are hoping that by uniting fans of this specific genre of entertainment, that we can show the world just how much we care.

We would like to invite everyone who loves all things spooky to join "Scares That Care!" in our battle. Whether it be by sharing the word about the charity, donating items that we can auction off or purchasing an item, rest assured the feeling that you get will be one of satisfaction. One Hundred percent of all donations go to those who need it most.

Please go to, and click on the link to join us on Facebook as well."

Our website will have a small banner representing the cause on the right side of our page. We don't want to pressure any of our site visitors to contribute, but check out the official website for yourself and see what Scares That Care is all about!
