❤️ I came to my 1st SPN CVN in NJ last Sept and I honestly never had so must fun and felt so much love and comradery in one place that I had there! It was SO uplifting. My life is not what I had expected. I am disabled, I have a disabled daughter and my Mom is on Hospice. I came there, in much pain, very worried, as I am everyday but I saw other people disabled also, smiling and chatting and having a great time! My husband and I are signed up (with our Gold Seats again)already to go again this year. The entire cast CANNOT BE ANY NICER! You all may not seem to know the impact you have on your fans but I can tell you for a woman who has been disabled for 14 years and physically cannot do much anymore and was feeling so depressed and lost, Supernatural let’s me have that interest and little escape I need to lose myself from what’s happening in my world. I THANK-YOU ALL for YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENT TO ENTERTAIN! Maybe, just maybe you understand what it ALL means to someone like me 😊. I realized how much you all did to “Give Back” in this World we all live in and even though I always donated monthly for years to 3 Animal Resue Organizations, I also became very interest in donating to Children’s Hospital’s after I came home from the Convention. AND, that is exactly what I did! My husband and I are very Blessed to be “comfortable” so I DO BELIEVE, We Must Help Each Other! Oh, last year I won only 1 VIP Seat and I wouldn’t use it without my husband (it wouldn’t have been fair), this year, I WILL WIN 2 , I promise, lol God Bless 😊

I love supporting all these great charities, but most recently there have been many struggles in my home with a chronically ill child , where at times I feel helpless and hopeless, but never waiver from my task at hand,
Then most recently a fellow teacher whom I worked with, her son's school had 3 suicides in one year and her own son is struggling greatly, as someone who has worked in the school system, knows there is way more need for help with this growing sadness and depression. And I would like nothing more than to be able to help. I would like to become a counselor, but I am unsure where to start. It is a true blessing the wonderful charities you are putting out there .

I was scared to Death of heights, still am. But when the 2016 GISHWHES asked me to be Badass AF, I just had to do this. Suddenly, people said I’d been lying about my fear. I learned that there will ALWAYS be someone ready and willing to judge. You just have to do what is right by YOU, not what others want you to do.

I just wanted to say that seeing how amazing Misha Collins is with charity and the amount of people he has helped, it has made me realize that no donation is too small. I have begun helping a group of very amazing families and elderly people with the Lakota tribe in South Dakota and it is so amazing to see that the smallest donation makes such a difference in their lives. I never really realized how little they have and while I cannot do a lot for them, I am trying my hardest to do what I can. Thank you Misha for helping me see how far a small gesture can go for someone.

I can't help as often as I would like, but I have benefited from helping others in a very big way. I have tried to include my family as often as possible and found out after this campaign that when I got my daughter (at the time 16 years old) involved in the #alwayskeepfighting campaign she was actually considering suicide and was cutting herself. We posted pics of the hashtag written on our arms and even talked about tattoos and talked to some of her friends, who were cutting, about it. I didn't know it but this as well as several other campaigns were not just helping people I didn't know personally make a better life, but people that were very close to me as well. As far as I'm concerned these campaigns have saved my family and people that no one even knew were hurting. I will continue to help every single time I can and thank Jared Padalecki for being so brave in the first place!

This tank says it all. I was on my way to Leavenworth, KS to see an old friend, and he offered to take me out to a bar in Lawrence (at the recommendation of a lovely lady sitting next to me on the plane). I do not like to fly, and I'm not comfortable in crowds or tight spaces. This trip was going to be a plane ride out and a train ride back, with a few stops along the way to visit friends, so it was a huge step outside my comfort zone. Having this shirt reminded me I was in good company, that I wasn't alone, and that I could do it. Thank you, Ladies, for this campaign.

This image is actually from the "I wish for this..." campaign, which does not appear as a selection. I hung my shirt and bracelet, along with a copy of Misha's statement, at work for two reasons: one, to teach others about Lydia's Place and Random Acts to hopefully raise awareness of both; and two, to remind myself how far I've come and how fortunate I am in where I work and those I work with. I wish for this... daily.
