Kyle Richards was born in Hollywood, into an acting family. She landed her first role at age four in Disney’s Escape to Witch Mountain, where she played the younger version of her sister, child actress Kim Richards. Her other sister is Kathy Hilton, mother to Nicky and Paris Hilton. Kyle’s TV credits include “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” “Little House on The Prairie,” “Carter Country,” “Down To Earth,” and “E.R.” Her film credits include Halloween and The Watcher in the Woods. Kyle is an avid advocate for the fight against cancer, even completing a 68-mile bike marathon and a 3-day 62-mile walk that raises money to fight breast cancer. Each year she adopts a family at Christmas whose lives have been drastically impacted by childhood cancer. She also participates in the Children’s Hospital Toy Drives and is a huge supporter of The Lollipop Theater Network. She also supports GLAAD and NoH8. Kyle was recently seen in Lifetime’s “Deadly Sibling Rivalry” and will guest star this month on “CSI Las Vegas.” She is married to the love of her life, Mauricio Umansky, one of the nation’s top realtors. In addition to raising four kids and starring in “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Kyle has written a book entitled Life is Not a Reality Show and just opened a women’s clothing store in Beverly Hills called “Kyle By Alene Too.” Season 3 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” premieres November 5th.

The sCare Foundation was created to focus on issues affecting today’s youth – poverty and homelessness. There are more than 1.6 million homeless youth in America, and an additional 5-7% become homeless in any given year. Currently, youth in the United States are more likely to live in poverty than any other developed nation. The goal of the sCare Foundation is to help alleviate some of these issues.

Founded by Malek Akkad, producer of the successful Halloween franchise, sCare Foundation (Suspense Community Allocating Relief and Empowerment Foundation) is a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating the hardships of poverty and homelessness facing today’s youth throughout North America. sCare Foundation’s focus will be to provide financial support to existing youth programs throughout North America, as well as arranging special sCare Foundation activities for children, such as set visits, movie screenings, celebrity meet-and-greets, and more. In addition to working with children in need, the sCare Foundation aims to involve more young people in philanthropy and develop their passions and skills to give back to their own communities. Honorary board members include filmmakers John Carpenter and James Wan. sCare wholeheartedly believes that the suspense genre demographic is an untapped resource of unlimited potential in giving and changing our global community.  It can be a part of the solution.
