Back Bone: Win Monstrous Prizes + Support Scares That Care

4

I am so happy to announce that I have teamed up with one of the most amazing foundations……… Scares That Care!

scaresthatcare

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!

I have donated a $25 Gift Certificate for my Etsy Shop as a raffle prize for their March $5 donation day!  Besides my gift certificate there are lots of other monstrous themed prizes being added! For every $5.00 donated, a number will be assigned. $5.00 would equal one number, $15.00 would equal three numbers, $25.00 would equal five numbers, and so on. At the end of the donation drive, they will select random numbers and contact those people to pick their prize!


As someone who has had to start a GoFundMe for help during my own medical crisis and someone who has grown up watching their mother lose their battle to breast cancer, I personally feel a strong connection with this foundation and everything they stand for. Not to mention the theme of their foundation is a perfect match for someone like me to team up with. I mean come on… look at that logo!

It could not come at a better time either. I have actually been in talks with the foundation since earlier this month. I just turned 35 last Friday. The same age my Mom was when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has made this birthday a difficult one that I actually was not looking forward to. Most people are not anticipating their birthdays because it makes them feel older. This birthday is a harsh reminder of just how young my Mom was and how short of a life she was given. It may not come off that way with all my fun “I met Henry Rollins Birthday posts“, however mentally it is something I have been thinking about constantly over the past year. A countdown of sorts to things becoming more real. Thankfully my husband was able to give my brother and myself a memorable moment we are able to look back on together. I also still think the way it all fell into place for us was my Mom’s doing somehow. Up there pulling strings.

With us no longer struggling with medical expenses, it feels only right to help give back to others that still are. It’s funny how things work out too. My donation worked out to be a better fit for their March donation day instead of February. It just so happens to fall 2 days after the anniversary of my Mom’s passing. So as I do this to help others, I do it in her memory as well.

So I ask of you.. please spread the word about this special event taking place on March 18th. Anyone can participate too! Just go HERE and read all about the donation day and how you can donate via their store, via Pay Pal or even snail mail! If you can not participate PLEASE spread the word! That helps more then you know!

Stay Spooky!

Make Our Nightmare Come True

Who wants to give my husband and I the ultimate gift for our birthdays this year!? Rob Zombie is offering 200 fans the opportunity to be in the brand new Rob Zombie movie. It costs $500 per person (airfare not included) and of course we don’t have that right now. Perfect timing!

RZ is shooting a new film and is inviting just 200 of the most hard core fans to get involved. You could be playing anything from a horrible monster to a sick robot or maybe just playing your crazy self…. that is if you’ve got what it takes. Time to show us your star potential… who knows? Perhaps this is you chance to be “discovered.” The movie shoots in LA, in Feb. Grab a spot, sign up and we’ll contact you directly to get your headshot and some other crucial info to get you cast in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

A nightmare come true  for the ultimate Rob Zombie fans…. who have money. I mean we are literally living in Rob Zombie memorabilia. My artist name was given to me because of my “healthy” Rob Zombie obsession.We have supported his work for years including Sheri’s clothing line. It’s a shame he can’t give a few of these away to some of the real hardcore fans that can’t afford it but have truly been supportive over the years.

Well if you are feeling generous you can donate to our tickets via PayPal by sending funds to nicole@artworkbylivingdeadgirlnicole.com. Hell it’s worth a shot! Spread the word! Help get us there!

Stay Spooky!

Received our annual Christmas Card from Linda Blair and her Worldheart Foundation. As you may already know, (from my past posts or from reading the Back Bone section of my website) I donate a portion of the proceeds of select items in my Etsy Shop to this foundation. I still have a few items left if you want to get a little something while helping this wonderful cause.

Stay Spooky + Supportive!
