Late last night Danneel Ackles (Supernatural, One Tree Hill) announced a fund-raiser she and her husband, Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, Smallville) will be participating in to help raise money for Out Youth and Random Acts.
If you missed it earlier this week, Jensen is one of the people who has signed up to run a 26.2 mile marathon in Seattle (dubbed “The Bad Idea Tour”) alongside co-workers Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Rob Benedict, Rachel Miner, and Jason Manns. According to the Crowdrise post, Jensen needs some help to train for the marathon, and they decided to raise some money for two good causes while they’re at it.
Jensen and Danneel will be hosting two SoulCycle classes on September 15, 2018, in Austin, Texas, and according to the event website, this is how you can get in on the fun:
Come jump on a bike with us for a 45-minute ride, then hang out afterwards for 30 minutes of refreshments, sweaty photos, and conversation! The first 114 participants that donate $100 or more AND fill out this form will get to join us for a ride; the top 12 donors in each class will be moved to the front row of the class for up-close motivation from Jensen and our amazing instructor Chris Chandler.
Jensen also got online to help spread the word with a video.
If you aren’t already familiar with the causes they’re raising money for, Random Acts is a non-profit organization started by Misha Collins (Supernatural). The home page on their website explains what they do as simply as possible. “At Random Acts, it’s our mission to conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time. We are here to inspire acts of kindness around the world both big and small. We provide a vast network of caring people with the encouragement and support they need to change lives for the better.”
Danneel explained all about Out Youth in her own words on the Crowdrise page, saying, “Out Youth is an incredible Austin organization which offers youth of all sexual orientations and gender identities a place where they are loved, acknowledged, and accepted for exactly who they are.”
100% of the proceeds Danneel and Jensen raise will be split evenly between both causes, so there’s no going wrong if you choose to donate! If you’re not able to get one of the 114 bikes to participate at SoulCyle in Austin, you can still donate directly to Jensen and Danneel’s Crowdrise page right here!
This is a unique opportunity to get up-close and personal with Jensen and Danneel while also helping to raise money for two worthy causes, so don’t miss out!
