Scares That Care is an approved 501(c)(3) who fights the REAL MONSTERS of childhood illness, burns and breast cancer by helping families that are experiencing these extraordinary hardships cope with the financial burden.
Our non-profit organization 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!

Scott provided the following about himself…
My fascination with horror started at a very early age… beginning with the 60’s Dark Shadows tv series. Was told that I’d drop whatever I was doing, when I heard the show’s theme song. Attended my first haunted house by the local Boy Scout’s troupe in Jr. high. They actually scared me to the point of almost being traumatized. ha! They felt so bad for me that they gave me a personal behind the scenes tour and was all good. In the 70’s local ABC affiliate KSTP hosted “Horror, Inc.”, (showing classic horror / scifi films) shown on Friday nights, Saturday afternoons & evenings, and Sunday morning.
Fast forward to 2005~ attended my first horror convention (Horrorfind Weekends) in Hunt Valley, Maryland. It took a leap of courage to travel from MN the 936+ miles alone by plane & shuttle. Doing so & finally meeting my online HFW forum friends (as well as horror celebs) helped me to overcome my shyness. Also being a volunteer for the con haunted house, as well as my own annual Halloween party with 3,000+ sq. ft. “Maze of Terror.”
It was there that I met Joe Ripple (then security for the convention) and Ceo of Scares That Care! charity. After making the trek for five years in a row from Minnesota… he offered me a position as State Representative for the charity in 2010. My first assignment that same year was to attend Crypticon Minneapolis as a vendor / spokesperson for the charity. Since then I’ve been helping Scares That Care! to raise awareness / donations. Helping “fight real monsters” though three host families a year and more.
Here are the latest vendors you will see at the STC Weekend 3 convention, July 22 – 24, 2016 in Williamsburg, VA!
