Supernatural stars raise more than 200K for Hurricane Harvey relief
UPDATE: As of Wednesday, the Supernatural actors’ campaign had surpassed $225,000 with a new goal of raising $350,000 by Friday.
The Supernatural family has done it again.
While Hurricane Harvey continues to hit Texas, Supernatural stars have rallied the show’s fandom to make a difference. Led by Jensen Ackles’ Texas-based company, Family Business Beer Company, and Misha Collins’ charity, Random Acts, they launched a fundraising campaign to help with hurricane relief.
Although the campaign’s original goal was $50,000, it has reached far past that. As of early Tuesday, the campaign had raised more than $130,000. Ackles and Collins — along with Jared Padalecki, Richard Speight Jr., and other members of the Supernatural family — have continued to promote the campaign, which will remain open through Friday.
