Emotions are running high after Supernatural aired its series finale, and fans are showing their love for fan favorite Castiel in a profound way.
A group of fans who wanted to show their appreciation for Castiel’s journey and all it represented over the course of 12 seasons have started The Castiel Project, a fundraising effort aimed at raising money for The Trevor Project in memory of Cas. It is a true indicator of what makes the Supernatural family special — coming together to bring some light and kindness to the world. It’s also a fitting send-off for Misha Collins, the actor behind Castiel who has long been a vocal ally of the LGBTQIA+ community. The effort has raised over $11,000 and counting as of this writing.
The Trevor Project is an organization dedicated to providing support to LGBTQIA+ youth through their crisis hotline and many other projects. The fundraising effort is also notable in that it began on November 20, the Transgender Day of Remembrance.
