Chicago, Il.-The Make a Threat Foundation celebrated 90 Years of fulfilling threats by ransoming Michael Jackson's corpse. That particular threat, the product of the fevered imagination of a young Simon Howard, who suffers from clinical lycanthropy, was the winning entry in the foundation's "Make a Threat Come True" Contest. The Make a Threat Foundation held the contest to draw attention to it's pending anniversary celebration and fund-raiser to be held on August 5th in Skokie, Illinois.
The Make a Threat Foundation was founded by Ralph "The Fish" Sapone after a friend's cousin's nephew died before his threat against a "G" man could be fulfilled. Mr. Sapone heard about the child's desires and took it upon himself to see that the threat was carried out. He decided then and there that, "No child's threat should be ignored.". That sentiment was to become the foundation's motto.
Since then, The Make a Threat Foundation has fulfilled the threats of more than 20,000 children. The threats have included everything from making sure a child was able to hold his breath until he got what he wanted, to putting a dead horse's head in the bed of a opponent in a student council election while the boy slept.
Contributions to The Make a Threat Foundation are currently being accepted for it's 2009 Christmas campaign which kicks off in early October.
