The stars of Supernatural may have battled endless phantoms, demons and other unmentionable creatures, but now they’re taking on the most dangerous monster of all: Hurricane Harvey.
Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins just spawned an epic fundraiser for hurricane relief along with Supernatural allies including Jared Padalecki and Richard Speight Jr. Ackles’ Family Business Beer Company and Collins’ Random Acts charity lead the effort, and it’s paid off by more than doubling their $50,000 goal. The stars have rallied their fandom to raise $130,000 as of earlier today, and the campaign still has until Friday to make an impact. The response to the campaign has been nothing less than viral — or you could say, supernatural.
As Ackles and Collins tweeted:
With all the devastation from this catastrophic event, there is no shortage of causes that the money could support. Shelters are overflowing after mass evacuations. As the flooding continues to drown Texas with 49 inches of rain and counting, it has become increasingly difficult to transport those with no way out. Rescue teams continue to need resources to keep as may of those affected above water as they can.
The tragedy hit too close to home for Austin resident Ackles, who will soon be opening his brewery in the area. He's been keeping fans updated on how their dollars are making a difference, via his personal Twitter account and the company’s; Ackles' Family Business Beer company will match every dollar donated. Collins started his nonprofit Random Acts to celebrate the power of kindness and purge the world of real-life demonic forces. Now that’s really the act of an angel.
You still have three more days to donate.
