HONOLULU (KHON2) — A Hawaii man is hoping that his spooky decorated house can help kids have a good time on Halloween night, as well as help those who are in need.

People who own the 12-foot skeletons that can be purchased at Home Depots nationwide have come together to raise money for St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital. Kelson Warford will be representing Hawaii in a fundraiser for a program called ‘Skeletons for St. Jude.’

“I have a lot of respect for everything that St. Jude’s does. I’m sure my daughter might have been with St. Jude for quite a while, but we ended up losing my daughter,” Warford said.

“So, that’s one of the reasons why this is. I decorate for the kids. I love getting the little kids that come around the neighborhood and they’re like, ‘I love your Halloween’ or ‘you got the best house ever,’ and I was like it’s all for you guys. It’s all for the kids.”
