Paying it Forward

So like most of the SPN Family, I just followed along with Misha’s panel at VegasCon. I am reminded of why I adore this man so much.

He came from nothing. He was homeless at one time and he actually breaks down when he remembers acts of kindness towards him and his family when he was a child. It is no coincidence that his charity is called Random Acts and that his motto is ‘one act of kindness at a time’.

We can all learn so much from a man that has spent a good part of his life paying it forward. Now that he has the means, and the platform, he uses it to give kindness to others and to encourage the rest of us to do the same.

Misha Collins makes me want to be a better person. He inspires me to want to give back to the world and pay it forward more often. 'Get Kind’ shouldn’t just be a slogan, it should be a way of life. Something we strive for every day.

Thank you, Misha! I am proud to be your fan and one of your kindness minions. Don’t ever change

ANNOUNCEMENT!

We are extremely pleased and very excited to announce that we are partnering with Random Acts (randomactsorg) to raise funds for their Dreams 2 Acts Nicaragua campaign!

If you’re unfamiliar with the campaign, you can read all about it here. Basically, Random Acts is raising funds to create a free high school for students in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, where access to public education isn’t a given- particularly for women.

We thought that this was an amazing opportunity, given the nature of Wayward Daughters. What better way to show support for empowerment of women and girls than by raising money to build a school for young people for whom education and opportunities might otherwise be out of reach?

Because of this, we’ve decided to make Random Acts the recipients of our t-shirt campaign donations! 

They are only about $25,000 away from their goal! That means that if every person who has already signed our petition bought a t-shirt, tank top, or hoodie, we could raise the remaining funds! It’s that easy!

We will be starting the t-shirt campaign soon on Represent, which means that 100% of the profit will go directly to Random Acts. We’ve had a lot of interest in the t-shirts, so we’re hoping that you will feel good about purchasing one knowing that your donation is going to an excellent cause.

If you don’t have $19.95 for a t-shirt, don’t worry. Our goal here isn’t to sell shirts. Any donation at all will go a long way for Dreams 2 Acts. Only have a dollar to spare? Awesome! That’s one more dollar than they’d already raised. Donate however much you want to the campaign here.

If you can’t spare any money, we totally understand. Just do something kind for someone today in the name of Random Acts. A little goes a long way!

We will keep everyone posted about the start of the t-shirt campaign, which should begin this next week. In the mean time, spread the word! We could very easily raise enough money to reach their goal, and how cool would that be?

Carry on, wayward children!

If you are trying to vote for Random Acts for Upgrade Your World and your voting by commenting on the Facebook post instead of voting on Twitter make sure you are tagging Random Acts and not just writing RandomActsOrg with the @ sign. If it doesn’t turn blue - YOU HAVEN’T ACTUALLY TAGGED THEM AND YOUR VOTE WON’T COUNT. I keep seeing posts without the charity tagged and you’re not actually voting that way. If you write @ and then Random Acts it will pop up on a drop down menu and you can click on it.
IF YOU CAN’T TAG AND DON’T SEE THE DROP DOWN MENU - it’s probably because you’re on mobile. You have to switch to laptop or desktop. Lots of people are having trouble with their mobile devices. I couldn’t get it to tag from any of my mobile devices, but when I got on my laptop it worked.
Voting ending Sunday! Random Acts is an amazing charity! And Misha sure could use a win right now!

It warms my heart and makes me extremely joyful that Misha is getting so much love from his colleagues and friends. I’m sure that with so much love heading his way, Misha will be fine in no time. Meanwhile, let’s keep voting on Twitter and Instagram also Facebook for Random Acts to win the contest!

(To vote in Twitter, this is a suggestion)

I #vote @randomactsorg as my favorite nonprofit to #UpgradeYourWorld #CashewKingdomRA @mishacollins 💗

Pretty much just hoping that Misha goes home to rest. Every source so far seems to agree that he’s alright and will probably be staying for the fans which is as sickly sweet nice as any person can get! But I think his family would benefit more from him being home right now than the fans would benefit from him being at the con.

But Misha is gonna do Misha even when he’s down on his luck he’s still going to push through for the fans.
So hopefully we can push through for him and win the 500k for Random Acts.
