What could one small random act of kindness do to our society? Misha Collins, a man who plays one of the starring roles on The CW’s hit show Supernatural, pondered the same question. It wasn’t long until Collins decided to take action.
Five years ago, Misha Collins founded The Greatest Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. The foundation G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. was launched to help benefit the show Supernatural in winning a People’s Choice Award. Collins is still in charge of the foundation today and has brought home several World Records; eight to be exact. Records such as the longest chain of safety pins, largest gathering of people dressed like French maids, and the longest human chain to pass through a hula hoop. By benefiting society, Collins has donated thousands to charity and turns his social media into a positive atmosphere as he encourages others to donate to charity and volunteering in their local communities.
Not only has Misha Collins founded G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S., but Collins is also the Co-Founder and Board president of the Random Acts of Kindness organization. Random Acts believes that anyone should do their own random acts of kindness wherever and whenever. On February 12, 2016, Collins teamed up with Jensen Ackles (who also plays a starring role in Supernatural) and created the You Are Not Alone campaign. The campaign was created to help support the SPNFamily crisis network, a community that offers support for people suffering from disorders such as depression and anxiety. Fans helped support the campaign and network by buying shirts with the Y.A.N.A logo on it and standing behind the two actors proudly. Collins’ great achievements in society conclude that one small act of kindness can travel a long way and benefit anyone in need of a helping hand.
