After the incredible success of his Always Keep Fighting fundraiser, Jared Padelecki is at it again, this time with help! Jesen Ackles is teaming up with him!


Here is their announcement

.be

In an interview with The Public Slate Jared and Jensen said that they are teaming up with co-star Misha Collins.
Ackles and Padalecki are not only working on the Always Keep Fighting campaign, but they are also teaming up with their fellow Supernatural actor, Misha Collins, and his organization Random Acts. Collins organization got started in 2009 as a Tweet asking his fans, known as minions, to come up with a plan for a “minion stimulus project.” This original Tweet has morphed into a non-profit organization that is looking to make a difference in the world, with one random act of kindness at a time. Padalecki and Ackles are hoping that by teaming up with Collins’ organization, they will be able to increase their overall reach.

On this new Represent page, Jared and Jensen talk about their other fund raising efforts
With y'all's help, we’ve been able to raise (literally!) hundreds of thousands of dollars to support great organizations. Organizations like To Write Love On Her Arms, Wounded Warriors, St. Jude’s, Attitudes In Reverse, The Down Syndrome Connection, and more.
And go on to say
We have the "bug". We want to seek out and find MORE worthy causes (while still supporting the aforementioned charities, of course) so that there can be an overwhelming abundance of places people can go to seek help. Whether it's for mental illness, depression, addiction, or for causes that we are not even aware of yet!
For those who already bought a tee shirt from Jared's first project, the guys have added new merchandise, including tote bags and phone cases.

An article from Liberty Voice at GuardianTV about the launch also talked about the impact of Jared's previous campaign and how it inspired them to launch this new fund raiser.
Not only was Padalecki’s original campaign a success financially for charity, but it also started discussions. People sat down and addressed some of the every day issues that everyone faces. Now, both Padalecki and Ackles want to offer support to more charities, whether they are small and need a helping hand in order to grow, or even if they have not gotten off the ground yet. Starting now, the two are hoping to support a variety of charities. This means not only is this second campaign important, but it also appears to be a starting point for future fundraising.
You can follow the progress of this new endeavor at the Facebook page established by Jared and Jensen or at the Represent website.

I am very proud that these fine men are working to make the world a better place.

I think it is really great they are doing this together. I got Jared's shirt but I missed out Jensen's when it was out. We will actually buy two this time as my husband wants one too.

I wish them good luck for this and working with Misha? Has nothing good ever come from that? ;)

The answer is of course yes!

Since it seems the fandom needs some cheering-up today, I was wondering does anyone have any feel-good stories about being out and about in their Always Keep Fighting Jared shirt? Or Jensen's SPN Family shirt or Misha's Monkey or Mark's 'Hello Boys'? Or ones I don't know about?

Got any positive feedback or suddenly discovered there are more SPN fans out there than you expected?

Some of the stories I have seen sound really sweet.

Here's Jared's first encounter to start with (I hope):

So the t-shirts are back on sale for one more day.

But you know I would totally ALSO buy a t-shirt with the slogan: 'No more dodo-birds'

ETA: I am pretty sure they sold 500 shirts in the past hour ....

Jared has me worrying. :'( He changed his bio on Twitter to:

We're very sorry to inform all fans that Jared isn't feeling well and can't join us in Rome @jarpad get well soon #JIB6 #JIBCon6 #JusInBello

Link ("http://twitter.com/JusInBelloCon/status/599231707859005440")

I can't help but think that he might be having some emotional difficulties rather than be suffering from a cold or something like that. He recently tweeted:

@jarpad

Who's awake right now?
Will someone tell me something positive that has happened because of #Supernatural? #ThankYoiu

Link ("http://twitter.com/jarpad/status/596640285452476416")

I hope everything is okay. It's easy to jump into conclusions because of how open he has been of having struggled with depression.

Be well Jared! We adore you you know?
(I don't know, SanSummer, maybe we shouldn't discuss this?) I had a comment too but I am taking it down..

Okay! :/ I'm just worried because Clif does not elaborate either and I think they would if Jared had just a physical ailment.

I hope his family is okay too!

I saw the most recent pics on his twitter, and I have to say he doesn't seem to be smiling his usual big, happy smile. I hope all is well. I've had a little worry in the back of my mind since his tweet about "tell me something positive..."

Apparently the thing in his Twitter bio is a quote from his sister's book

# SanSummer1 2015-05-15 14:58
Yes, but why that quote and why change his bio today? :/

It really does seem that something bad has happened:

@TheJimMichaels can you please tweet something about the health issue. We would love to know if Jared is ok. Thanks~

I consider these things a very private matter and I will wait to hear from @jarpad and or @bodyguard4JandJ directly

Jared has attended conventions before despite being sick.

Well, clinical depression might be a lifetime issue for him. I agree that the tweets are cryptic and definitely don't alleviate concerns. Hopefully, he has supportive family and friends around him if he is indeed depressed.

The bio is especially upsetting. By changing his bio, I think Jared wanted to show fans that he is not doing well emotionally.

Also the way he wrote it without spelling properly or capitalizing letters is weird although he does sometimes write like that on his Facebook page at least.

The rest of the cast etc. have been in Rome together but Jared has been in Switzerland.

I feel very sad at the thought that he's feeling depressed. I hope it's something else. Is his family with him in Europe? I very much hope so.

There are two new and very troubling tweets he's just sent out. Indeed he sounds very depressed. He's not staying for the con and is heading home. :(

# SanSummer1 2015-05-15 22:16
I just had an awful feeling about the whole thing, went to sleep and dreamt about it so when I woke up, I had to check if Jared had said anything. I saw these tweets and it sounds very serious :(

He will miss the conventions in Australia, too. I hope that there has not been a death in the family or something else that's final. He can get trough this!
