Children's Special Effects Workshop

$2,025 of $2,000 goal

Michael Knost  CHAPMANVILLE, WV
Syfy’s Face Off  finalist (and special effects wizard)
R.J. Haddy  and Bram Stoker Award-winner Michael Knost  will conduct a monster makeup workshop on June 6th in Charleston, WV for low income children.

Children between the ages of 5 and 7 are eligible to attend.

We want to provide a workshop for children interested in special effects makup, and we want to ensure that cost is not a prohibitive factor for the parents. So, in order to pay for the materials, etc., we wanted to create a fundraising effort so you can be a part of this special day!

We need to raise $2,000 to cover all supplies and gear for 10 children. Anything raised above our goal will go toward adding more children to the workshop, as well as paying for snacks and refreshments.

This is an incredible opportunity for children from low-income families to do something they will remember for the rest of their lives.

We will take photos and create a video of the event that we will post on the Internet. All donors (who do not wish to remain anonymous) will be recognized in the video.

Will you help?

We are just $655 away from making this workshop a reality! I can't wait to see the children getting their hands in the makeup and stuff. Many of these kids don't get to do much because their parents can't afford much except to survive. That's why this project is so important. Every child deserves a chance to allow creativity to flow no matter what background they come from. I want to thank you again for being so generous with your love. You people mean so much to me. Thank you again for being so awesome! I will be posting photos and videos of the event, so keep tuned in! - Michael

We know you have reached your goal of $2,000 but we would like to help in providing refreshments or even help in sponsoring another child. I (Theresa) am a native of Chapmanville and think it is a good thing you are doing in getting the youth engaged.
