"Supernatural" fans raise over $7,000 for children's charity within 24 hours
Jared Padalecki announced he and his wife, Genevieve, would be expecting their first child in 2012 and asked that in lieu of gifts, the couple preferred fans donate to St. Jude Children's Hospital. The fanbase, within hours, raised thousands.
To assist fans in the donation process, WinchesterBros.com, the largest Supernatural news fansite, set up a donation page and within 12 hours Supernatural fans had raised nearly $4,000 for children's cancer research, prompting an ecstatic tweet from the actor regarding the amount raised within such a short time frame.
After 24 hours, the amount raised reached over $7,000 and continues to climb. The fundraiser will run until the Padalecki baby is born. Donations can be made via WinchesterBros.com through the FirstGiving page linked on their website.
The Padaleckis met while filming the 4th season of the CW hit show "Supernatural"
