A good crush is tall, dark and handsome. A great crush is three and is also heroic with a fabulous mane and seems to be made of sunshine, sparkles and puppy-esque exuberance. When actor Jared Padalecki is not saving people as the soulful demon-hunter and apocalypse-thrwarter Sam Winchester on The CW’s “Supernatural,” he’s also working to de-stigmatize mental illness and raise money for worthy charities with his Always Keep Fighting campaign—a movement he started after revealing his own battle with depression.
"It's stuff that I have dealt with and I'm still dealing with so it means so much to me. I hope the fans feel support from me the way I feel support from them. I love them all very much…Fight for each other. Love each other. Always keep fighting," Padalecki has said.
Bravery is the new sexy, am I right?
You can buy Always Keep Fighting merch through November 17, ensuring that they will arrive in time for the holidays. All proceeds go to a PACK Fund benefiting various charities. In the past, Padalecki has championed To Write Love On Her Arms, which helps people fighting depression. Shirts are available here.
For more Padalecki perfection, tune into “Supernatural” on Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
P.S. Did I also mention he can do this with a 500-pound tire?
