Watch below and hear me chat about attending August’s Scares That Care Weekend!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I enjoy making video content. So, here’s a warm up for the Halloween season! Let’s talk about the Scares That Care convention.
So, what’s STC exactly?
Scares That Care was founded by Joe Ripple, a retired Baltimore County, Maryland, Police Detective, in 2007 as a tribute to the daughter of a fellow officer who succumbed to a terminal illness.
The charity originally started with the goal of raising $10,000 per year for organizations such as Make-A-Wish and the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
After several successful campaigns, the charity became more formalized in 2011 as an IRS approved 501(c)(3) and a newly established Board of Directors, we refocused to fight the REAL MONSTERS of childhood illness, burns and breast cancer by helping families that are experiencing these extraordinary hardships cope with the financial burden by raising and providing $10,000 per sponsored family.
Scares That Care just finished its fifth weekend fundraising event in Williamsburg, Virginia – and they’ll be back for more!
In the video below, check out a recap of our own adventure at STC. Heads up: the con is awesome and SUPER kid-friendly. Ahem, you may see a couple surprise cameos from a pair of budding horror fans…
