thank you <3
After last weeks’ events where we celebrated our love for Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins, it’s time to spoil another landmark on our favorite show, king of eye rolling and winner of the best-hellatus beard award, Jensen Ackles.
On June 12, y’all are invited to tag your posts, your graphics, drawings, gifs, poetry and more under #welovejensen so it’ll be easier to track down for either bloggers and fans. As you may know, Jensen doesn’t run a personal Twitter account on his own (he’s not very fond of any social network actually :p), but you can obviously tag more support there and I’m sure he’ll know through Danneel and the others. Also, if you please, tweet @cw_network about how amazing his work is as both actor and director on Supernatural.
Next Tuesday it’ll be an opportunity to cheer for your star showing respect and caring for other people’ opinions, two of the best qualities Jensen genuinely showed us through the years.
Unlike the two appreciation days that preceded it, the Jensen Ackles’ Day isn’t meant to cope with a bunch of haters who apparently have nothing else to do but offend people’ work and try to spread hate and discontent in fandom — acts to despise whomever they’re addressed to — but only represents an arc of time when anyone who wants to spontaneously strengthen, renew and extend its support is very welcome. For a man who’s never saved showing the passion he puts into his work and the love he feels for his fans, never claiming anything back.
We wish it’ll first be a celebration for the human being he is, before his acting roles, before being a model and an internationally famous tv-star.
thank you everyone who posted/tweeted yesterday and i hope everyone had fun!
even if we couldn’t get it trending, at least we tried and let’s hope Jared felt the love
maybe next year will be more successful, remember to mark your calendars!
Why I love a chap named Jared Padalecki:
It all started with this little show called Gilmore Girls. I was kind of in love with Rory and her then (and first ever) boyfriend, Dean - mostly Dean and the kid who played him. After they fizzled out and Jared left the show I saw an ad for Supernatural on my TV and yelled, ‘OMG. DEAN FORESTER HAS ANOTHER SHOW! WE HAVE TO WATCH IT FOR HIM!!!!!111’ to my then-roomie. We watched it and I fell in love with Sam and the show and more in love with Jared. I kept watching and it kept growing.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started digging into who this Jared Padawhatever was and what he was all about. He’s a fellow super tall Texan and, from what I read/saw, was a pretty awesome and kind person. Hello, new love of mine.
Then I got up the nerve to attend a Supernatural convention last year and my love for this guy grew even more. He was the second cast member I ‘had a conversation’ with at the con on Friday. It wasn’t a conversation per say. I just stared at him and smiled as he pointed me out and said he had the same sock monkey hat that I was wearing. He didn’t have to do that but I think it’s amazing how he loves connecting with the fans and kind of goes out of his way to do that. I met him again on Sunday and exchanged words about Texas and he called me ‘his Texas girl’ and ‘babe’…granted he probably does that to just about everyone. I don’t care. He made me feel special for 5 seconds. And that’s why I love him so incredibly much.
He seems like a really kind, grounded individual who knows what’s important. He doesn’t flaunt his success and helps others out when it’s needed. He and Gen didn’t have to match the donation to St. Jude that the fandom made in honor of Thomas but he gladly matched it.
I love you, your dumb face, your ability to always make us smile, your heart of gold, your everything.
We Love Jared Padalecki…

Happy Jared Padalecki appreciation day!
