"Scares That Care!" is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides money, toys and other items to help sick children. We have two other programs consisting of "Scares For Pairs," where we help women fighting breast cancer and partnered with horror icon Kane Hodder for the "I Helped Kane" program, where we provide assistance to those children who have suffered serious burn injuries.
We are a 100% VOLUNTEER organization in order to maximize our supporters donations to those who need it!

Tripp's Check Presentation
Folks - as many of you know, we selected three families in 2012, with a goal of helping all three during that time period. Due to the fact that we didn't grow as fast as I would have liked, we were only able to help two of the three families. Draven received his check, to aid with his heart transplant, and Maddie received her check to help her fight breast cancer. I'm proud to say that we are going to be giving Tripp - our third designee for 2012 - his check this month for $10,000. Tripp was the young child we selected as our burn victim to assist, in our partnership with Kane Hodder.
Sometimes, the donations don't come in as fast as we would like. We don't get a paycheck or salary from the charity like most organizations...so we need to balance our personal and work lives with the needs of the charity. BUT we never forget anyone that we select. I'm proud to say that Tripp was always in our minds and hearts, and he deserved our continued hard work.
We look forward to sharing with you - the donors - this check presentation very soon, and we thank you for your continued assistance as we fight REAL monsters!
