HELP SAVE SPOOKY!!!!!
My name is Matt Allen co-owner of Freakshow Designs and Sideshow Apparel in Orlando and one of the many vendors for this show. We've teamed up with Coffee Shop of Horrors and this is the OFFICIAL SAVE SPOOKY donation page. As you all know Hurricane Matthew caused the show to be cancelled. As you may or may not know, Spooky Empire is a Mom and Pop owned show, just like many of it's vendors. They are not a huge corperation and they they put literally EVERYTHING they have into putting these events on.
Spooky is one BIG family, and family help each other in need!
If you care...Share!!! Donate, please! We all know there are many people in need from the Hurricane and a silly Horror Con is low on the list. But Pete and Gina Mongelli lost their livelihood and much more due to the storm and this is not a corporate show, this is a small business trying to take care of themselves and in turn many others. Spooky gave venue to many who honestly began their businesses there. The pricing for tables and booths was fair and many vendors have eschewed their requests for re payment to keep this show going. It's called being charitable and unlike insurance and lawyers, who have done so much for us at time of disaster like quitting our state, We the people have decided to fight on. Plus we all know it takes months or longer to collect on any claim. So, we are essentially putting training wheels on this bike till it can roll down the road and say," Look, Ma! No hands!" LOL! But seriously...This is up to you and what you feel in your heart. If you do not want to donate, then like voting, make it known by yea or nay and that is by not or contributing. This campaign was started as a love note to Spooky. This goes on with even popular TV shows thqat get cancelled. Firefly anyone. So, just like fans of Game of Thrones or Walking Dead, you either like it or not. To say negative things is not going to stop the positive energy that even newspapers and vetted journalists have seen. It's an out pouring of love and what one loves another may not. But the power of positivity will prevail. so, decide for yourselves and since the firstammendmnet allows freedom of speech, good! Let both sides be heard. But fact checking must be done and because you are in the legal field or insurance, what is your true interest? Who do these types work for and what have they done to improve lives besides charging? so, to simplify, we wnat our family to have ahome and we want to only ask for a dollar or so. If everyone just gave 1 to 5 dollars, then months from now when you need that break from who the hell knows what is coming next in this country and life...You made a deposit on keeping your sanity. Besides many people are way out of pocket and this could help get it all back. A dollar from 100,000 people is not really all that hard to do with the interwebs. So spend a buck and you can always get a free cup of coffee from Coffee Shop of Horrors. Try THAT at Starbucks! A buck will get you the cup and nothing more. Lol! Thanks and hope everyone you know or love is safe from this beast of a storm.
100% of everything donated here will go directly to Spooky Empire Inc. (minus GoFundMe's cut). Thanks to everyone who has, a will be donating! LONG LIVE SPOOKY!!!
