If you’re a part of the SPNFamily and a fan of Supernatural or just want to support an amazing campaign, don’t forget to check out Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins’ “You Are Not Alone” campaign.
You have about four days left as of today so hurry and grab yourself a t-shirt or a sweatshirt or a cinch bag. The prices run from $22.99 to $39.99, much like the other campaigns Jared Padalecki and Jensen have done recently.
The campaign supports the new SPNFamily Crisis Support Network. This fan-based community is the result of Random Acts partnering with IMAlive and To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) to create a place where fans can go to get the help they need.
The SPNFamily Crisis Support Network is described as “a fan-led community support system where trained fans can help other fans deal with depression, self-injury, and addiction.”
“This campaign is raising the funds needed to develop the community platform, train eligible fan volunteers to be crisis responders, and help get fans in crisis the help they need in their own communities.”
And if you have any questions or if you’d like to learn more about becoming a crisis support volunteer, you can contact this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as I heard about the campaign, my admiration for the Supernatural cast continued to grow even more. Ever since Jared started “Always Keep Fighting” and shared his battle with anxiety and depression, I truly learned how much these guys do care for their fans.
Anxiety, depression, addiction, self-injury…none of these are easy to live with or talk about so having the SPNFamily and developing this community is incredible and could be exactly what some fans need to help themselves. Even the littlest bit of help or encouragement can go a long way.
So if you can, support “You Are Not Alone,” grab some awesome merchandise and continue to make the SPNFamily a supportive place for us fans!
Until next time, don’t forget (as if we could) that there’s a brand new episode of Supernatural tonight at 9pm!
