GIVE TO A GOOD CAUSE
Scares That Care! is doing a Friday the 13th Online Donation Day today. Donations will go to three families that are in need.
Here’s how it works. For every $5.00 donated, a number will be assigned. The numbers will be assigned in numerical order. People can donate as often as they like during that 24 hour time frame. A donation of $5.00 equals one entry, while a donation of $50.00 would equal ten entries. Once the donation day ends, numbers will be drawn at random for the prizes.
Here’s a list of the prizes your donation could nab you:

WATCH THE MOVIE NAMED FOR THE DAY
I really need to buy the Friday The 13th movie. (The original from 1980, not the crappy lame 2009 remake.) I’m always disappointed when it’s not on TV on a Friday the 13th night.
Although, nowadays thanks to things like Amazon Instant Video, I guess I can always watch it with just the click of a button on my computer.
JAUNT DEEPER INSIDE CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE
Friday the 13th movie and Jason fans would appreciate adding this book to their collection: Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday The 13th.
When “Friday the 13th” premiered in 1980, the film introduced moviegoers to a new kind of cinematic terror – shocking, visceral, graphic and relentless. Spawning ten popular sequels to date, the series has become the most successful horror franchise of all time, and the character of ‘Jason’ an icon known around the world as the first name in evil. Now, uncensored and in their own words, over 200 alumni of the series recall a quarter-century’s worth of behind-the-scenes stories – the struggles, feuds, foibles, controversies and calamities. Fully illustrated with nearly 600 never-before-seen photos, rare archival documents and production materials, this huge hardback volume is the ultimate oral and visual memoir of the series – a must-have for fans and cinema historians alike.

THINK OF THINGS MISSING FROM FRIDAY THE 13TH
As I was putting together this post, I started thinking of silly things. Things missing from Friday the 13th memorabilia.
Such as, I don’t think they have near enough movies. They need more. Like Jason vs. Michael or Jason vs. Mothman. Even better, Bride of Jason.
And what about the jewelry market. It’s severely neglected. They have shirts but no hockey mask necklaces, rings, or earrings? What gives?
What about you? What kind of things do you think are missing from Friday the 13th? And how do you spend it? Do you do anything special?
