Help Support Mental Fitness, Inc. Charity Auction In Its FINAL TEN DAYS, Awesome Horror Items Up To Bid On!!

As a horror fan, what led me to the genre was how much of an escape from reality it was to me as a child. Like so many fans, it was that frightening yet fun escapism that helped take my mind off of any real horror that was going on back in my home life. So many people who were /are victims of abuse, self-esteem/self-image issues and various other mental health issues, are unable to get the mental help needed at times to overcome these horrible afflictions. So, with all of that being said, we at Icons of Fright could not possibly be more absolutely ecstatic about being able to help spread the word about one hell of a charity auction to help benefit Mental Fitness, Inc. a wonderful non-profit organization who has rounded an impressive array of items that they’re going to auction off to raise money for the cause. Me, personally, I tend to not take on things unless I fully believe in them, and what Mental Fitness, Inc. is doing for not only genre fans, but for the mental wellness of youth everywhere, I am genuinely and passionately on board with this one. Jacob Burman, from the organization, was nice enough to write this up for us, to fully let you awesome horror fans know how to help and as an added bonus, what AWESOME horror-related items are up for auction. Read on!
