The Haunted Storyteller's Shattered Spooktacular is proud to be benefitting BAT WORLD SANCTUARY this year. Anything you donate will go directly to the charity.
Information about Bat World Sanctuary, via their website:
Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the mistreatment of bats. Each year we rescue hundreds of bats who might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, and retired from the exotic pet trade, zoos and research facilities. Bat World was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, accredited organization with the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries. Donations allow us to continue our rescue efforts for bats.
See photos above for participating artists!

🎃 O R I G I N S 🎃
The origin of the Spooktacular is one set in idle chatter: one day in 2019, the two co-hosts were chatting about Hallow's End and each admitted they'd wanted to run a Halloween event, but not alone. Thus, the first Shattered Spooktacular was born! We're happy to share our enthusiasm of the season with you all- and glad to have you with us!

This event surrounds the legend of a spectral storyteller that had a phantasmal reach across all worlds, so long as there was a library to be found-- if only to haunt the stories therein. This was the soul of an orator, tragically muted by their passing! The Storyteller was tormented by untold stories far and wide, and it nearly fractured the ghost in twain. In order to help soothe their shattered soul, the very first Spooktacular was held- an effort not only to appease a frustrated librarian's spirit- but for many souls! The Shattered Spooktacular, though seemingly silly, is a festival of honoring the lonely dead, those that may long to hear mythical tales of olde spoken by those with devoted interest, be entertained by grand performances filled with flair and wonder, and even delight in the costumed presentations that mortals portray. For one night, we appeased a ghostly audience- to enormous success. And now, we do it again!

What's a festival of compassion for stories untold, without support for those who do not have voices? Every year, we intend to hold a charity raffle that benefits an organization with the goal of rescuing or supporting those in need. In 2019, we raised an incredible amount of support for American Humane with For the Familiars!, and this year? We intend to do it again. For the Familiars! will return, and this time- we're supporting Bat World Sanctuary! We will be posting more information about For the Familiars! closer to the event date.
