T-shirt Campaigns

A love of supporting charitable causes and Supernatural t-shirts are long-standing in the Supernatural fandom. So bringing them together was an obvious match. Starting in late 2014, Misha Collins sold two fan-designed shirts to raise money for Random Acts. Osric Chau, Mark Sheppard, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and other cast members followed suit over the next couple of months and continue to do so throughout the show's run.

In November 2015, Creation Entertainment set up Creation Stands, which partnered fan-designed shirts and art with actors to raise money for charities. In July 2017, the owner of Creation Stands announced on twitter that they would be ending their business relationship with Creation Entertainment, and the company was re-branded as simply "Stands" while continuing to partner actors and charities with campaign merchandise.

There are other official t-shirts sold under the brand "Join the Hunt" that are associated with actors from show, however this entry only documents those associated with charitable fundraising, most often done through Stands or Represent. This entry also does not document campaigns of non t-shirt items that have been sold through a partnership between SPN actors and their charities, such as posters or dog tags, unless a t-shirt was also being sold within the same campaign.

Rachel Miner's "Be the Clarence"

Charity: Earth Justice
On Sale: August 2017 Tanks, t-shirts, bracelets, cinch bags
Number sold: 4,553

From the site: "This Campaign will support Earthjustice, the nation's original and largest nonprofit environmental law organization, leveraging their expertise and commitment to fight for justice and advance the promise of a healthy world for all. For more info on Earthjustice click: HERE. Join us in standing with Rachel Miner to support this effort!

After a few days of hype beforehand, Rachel Miner launched this campaign with the tweet, "I'm excited -launch day is finally here! Help me support EarthJustice & #BeTheClarence you want to see in the world." During past campaigns, fans of the show (while frequently referring to actors, crew and fans as "SPN family") have bought and then mailed campaign shirts to other fans who were not able to purchase ones for themselves, or purchased extras and then run raffles on twitter or tumblr to give them away for free. With this campaign, Rachel took this underground tradition and made it mainstream by including a gift option directly in the campaign, allowing "donors" to be matched with recipients, similar to the way GISHWHES allowed giving of registrations. Rachel was quoted by Stands twitter as saying, "I want you to set this up so people can pay it forward."

The campaign was met with a wave of enthusiasm from fans, who created fanart of Rachel in the campaign shirt, which Rachel often retweeted and responded positively to throughout the campaign, as well as edited collages of images from the actors's twitters made by fans. Stands also used a collage-style ad of the photos of the SPN actors in their shirts for an e-mail advertisement during the campaign. The campaign's goal of 1,000 shirts was met within three days, and the website hosting the campaign crashed on the fourth day, according to Stands's twitter, from the number of people accessing it.

Campaign shirts were modeled in pictures posted to twitter by other Supernatural actors showing their support, including Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Rob Benedict, Ruth Connell, Matt Cohen, Alaina Huffman (and family), Osric Chau, Samantha Smith, Jared Padalecki (and Baby), and twice by Misha Collins.

Charity: Camp Conrad-Chinnock
On Sale: August 2017 Hoodies, t-shirts, raglans, and mugs
Number Sold: ?

After the end of his previous campaign, Mark announced on twitter that his "I Win" shirt would be available for two more weeks. The link he provided directs fans to his represent store, where the "I Win" shirt was available, along with relaunches of his "Make Hell Great Again" and "Hello Boys" designs, as well as offering all three designs as a new mug option.

Charity: The Alzheimer's Foundation of America
On Sale: July-August 2017 T-shirts, hoodies, 3/4 raglans, tank-tops in black or gray
Number sold: 569

From the site: "'I've designed this tee to show that I Less Than Three All of you! A portion of proceeds will be donated to The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America!' - Davey HJ"

The campaign also contained a link to a post on David Haydn-Jones's instagram that explains the origin of the slogan and the phrase "less than three you." He ends the instagram post with the dedication, "For my Nana. And my wonderful Grandfather, Aunts, Mother and part-time caregiver who nurtured her and gave comfort. #LTTU"


Mark Pellegrino's Official "Yes" T-Shirt

Markpyesshirt.jpg
Pellegrinoyesshirt.jpg

Charity: Attitudes In Reverse
On Sale: July 2017 Unisex t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, 3/4 raglans
Number sold: 303

From the site: "Attitudes in Reverse has a mission to provide unlimited mental health awareness and suicide prevention programs to youth and young adults regardless of ability to pay. Inspire hope for those suffering from mental pain so they seek assistance while instilling empathy and understanding of mental health disorders throughout society. Find out more here."

Mark Pellegrino announced this campaign on his twitter by stating, "Say hello to my YES t-shirt. Let's de stigmatize mental illness together." The play on the word "yes" is a reference to Lucifer and other angels requiring consent to inhabit a human vessel. Mark P continued to promote the campaign through his twitter for the duration, including a tweet as to why he was supporting Attitudes in Reverse, and an affirmation that, "For someone (like me) with depression, PTSD and generalized anxiety disorder, a reminder of what's good always helps. 😈".

While many fans supported Mark P both through shirt sales and in comments on twitter, there was some controversy during this campaign. Some fans criticized the slogan on the shirt, saying it was more of a slogan for Mark P's political ideals than for the battle against mental illness. Others referenced instances of past twitter conversations in which they would not support Mark P's behavior as a reason for not purchasing a shirt. Mark P has a history of twitter hate from Creation Entertainment convention-goers and fans of the show, with both sides referring to comments made as cyberbullying.

At the end of the campaign, after a low number of sales, Mark P tweeted that 100% of the money would be donated to Attitudes In Reverse.

Multiple contests were run through this campaign, including a chance to win a skype session with Kim and Briana and a chance to be a member of Kim and Briana's 2017 GISHWHES team.

Kim Rhodes & Briana Buckmaster's "Wayward Daughters"

Waywarddaughterstee.jpg

Charity: Random Acts
On Sale: December 2015 T-shirts and hoodies
Number sold: 2,347

Relaunched in August 2016 to benefit Random Acts' Dreams 2 Acts Nicaragua project once again.
On Sale: August 8th thru August 22nd, 2016 T-shirts, tanks, hoodies, and cinch bags
Number Sold: 1,259

Wayward Daughters is a collaboration and we elected to support Random Acts. I have personal reasons for this as well.

I have been wayward much of my life. Often it was by choice, opting to belligerently pursue the road less traveled because it led someplace I shouldn't go. Other times it was by failure and I'd wind up sitting alone among

the metaphorical thorn bushes, weeping and hoping for guidance. Or at least an end to the self-inflicted pain. I was judged, I was scolded, I was silenced, I was mocked, I was ignored... but there was only one thing that ever brought me home. An act of kindness. It costs me nothing to be kind. It gives me everything. And practicing kindness now includes how I treat myself. I still identify as wayward. But we all do, don't we? A little? So supporting Random Acts seems a pretty logical thing for Wayward Daughters to do.

– Kim Rhodes, From the Creation Stands campaign site


Kim and Briana wear the shirt.

Wayward Daughters supporting Random Acts seems like a pretty obvious pairing to me. The movement behind Wayward daughters is inspired by the idea that we are all capable of finding our greater selves. Every set-back, every time we fall, it gives us new opportunity to rise up. But doing it alone can be tricky. That’s why we need to band together to support each other. To be there to lend a hand when one of us is feeling too weak. My dream for Wayward daughters is that it becomes a symbol to silently say “Go. Be you. I've got your back”. Random Acts is the perfect embodiment of such words. They are there to not only help you, but to also teach and encourage you to help others. They are an incredible charity and I am truly grateful and humbled to have an opportunity to help them.

– Briana Buckmaster, From the Creation Stands campaign site

Charity: Random Acts
On Sale: November, 2014
Number Sold: 8,508

From Misha: I got sentimental watching SPN last night. It's been many years working on this show. Even longer for some others. Kids have been born, people have passed away. Lives have been touched. In 2010 i banded together with some SPN fans to start Random Acts. Since then we have funded and inspired thousands of charitable acts including the construction of an orphanage and the funding of a school. We have big ambitions for this coming year. We're going to try to build another school and launch a charity crowdsourcing platform that we hope will move mountains. If you want to support these projects, you can buy a T-shirt. 100% of proceeds will go to Random Acts and you will have a nice, warm shirt in time for the holidays. Buy a shirt and i promise we'll try to galvanize some good with the money we raise. (It's also a clever way for me to realize my life-long dream of resting my head on your chest. (Source)
