Supernatural star Jared Padalecki isn’t just another pretty face. He’s using his power as a celebrity to bring much needed attention to a platform that affects millions of people in hopes of saving lives.
Last week, Padalecki launched a Represent T-shirt campaign to raise money for nonprofit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. The campaign, named “Always Keep Fighting,” has surpassed its initial goal of selling 1,000 shirts within the first two hours. At the time of publication, the site has already sold over 23,500 shirts.
On the campaign, Padalecki writes, “I hope that this campaign, while raising money for a wonderful charity, can also raise awareness about issues that affect more people than we know. I hope it inspires people battling depression, addiction, mental illness and suicidal thoughts to be vocal about their struggles. I hope it helps people realize that they shouldn’t be ashamed of what they are going through, and I hope it helps people meet and find new friends that they can relate to. I hope it helps people take pride in the fight that they have been fighting, and gives them a push to never give up or give in. I hope it helps inspire people to keep fighting. no matter how hard it is.”
