Haunted House Benefits R.A.P.H.A House

Updated:

It takes some prep work to create a spooky atmosphere on simple plot of land. Organizer Brandon Freed says although the Twisted Forest doesn't look too frightening during the day, at night its a different story.

"It's all business men that own this its not something we are doing for a living and its just fun so we thought we can help with this money and what better way to help someone in bondage" says Freed.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit R.A.P.H.A. House, a Joplin non-profit organization committed to ending trafficking and sexual exploitation of children in southeast Asia.

"We were able to buy and secure land for a girl who graduated from our rapha house program who had been a former slave and that really made us feel great that we were able to help someone and change their life with something that's fun that we enjoy doing" says Freed.

Blair Freed was recently in Cambodia with the organization. She says putting on the spook house for the community is more enjoyable knowing it will help an on-going problem.

"There is a massive need, not only in Cambodia but around the world and we need to be doing anything and everything we can so if we can donate a portion of the proceeds we get from this spook house to help end child slavery we are going to do that" says Freed.

As their transformation from human to zombies evolves, the group hopes to reach out to another 250 girls, one scream at a time.
