MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A 24-hour international event aimed at raising money for the 12-year-old Waukesha stabbing victim. The event is being held by the CreepyPasta community. Members are taking donations for the girl, while sharing stories they say are never meant to inspire violence.
It's the theme of a 24-hour stream on YouTube. Fans of CreepyPasta horror stories are raising money for the 12-year-old girl who was stabbed 19-time by her schoolmates, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier.
The preteen suspects told police the near fatal attack was a tribute to Slenderman, one of the most popular characters in the CreepyPasta network.
"When the incident happened, I woke up to the sound of sirens and when I found out it was linked to CreepyPasta, I told the administrator Creepypasta.com, the administrator of creepypastawiki.com that they were gonna have a lot of attention coming their way," said Joe Jozwowski, Creppypastanetwork.com administrator.
The 24-hour stream is meant to draw international attention to a week-long fundraiser. CreepyPasta writers will take turns reading horror stories -- with a catch.
"We`ve been scritinzing these CreepyPasta stories we`re gonna be reading in this 24-hour marathon very closely," said Jozwowski. "There`s no mention of Slenderman, no mention of Jeff the Killer, no mention of any harm or injury to children."
Jozwowski says the stream is also meant to explain what CreepyPasta is about, a collection of scary stories. If kids are reading them their parents should know.
"There`s a lot of stories that are not suitable for all ages, like with all media; video games, movies, books...you need to know what your child`s comprehension level is," said Jozwowski.
A crucial part, of knowing whether someone can separate fantasy from reality.
"Do what you can to help them see the line that needs to be seen," said Jozwowski.
While the live-stream event is going on for 24-hours, the CreepyPasta fundraiser is going on for another week. A spokeswoman for the victim's family says they are aware of the fundraiser.
As for the girl's condition, the spokeswoman says there are good days and bad days, but she is enjoying the care packages, letters, and hearts that well-wishers are sending.
