Tealights For the SPN Family
Organized by: Kai Winchester
May 10, 2016
In 2015, Jared Padalecki stepped forward to tell the world that he suffers from depression. In the wake of that, he created the Always Keep Fighting campaign, which seeks to gather together and support those who are struggling and in need. Sometimes a message is not enough. Sometimes you need something tactile, physical, that you can hold in your hand to connect you with thousands of other people out there. This is what these tealights are for.
These tealights are white LED tealights with replaceable batteries (included), tucked inside a round black tin container. Around the outside will be the words "Always Keep Fighting" and "You Are Not Alone." The graphic seen above (the pentagram with heart and wings and the SPN Family Est. 2005 text) will be on the outer lid. Inside the lid will be a round sticker with a personal message to you from another member of the SPN Family. (People at the conventions can choose to write a message to be included in the next container handed out.)
** I'm working on getting a completed tealight set up so I can show you what it looks like. **
The plan is to take 250 of them to VanCon in August of 2016, and then another 250 to SeaCon in April 2017. (If funding only permits one, I will take the tealights to SeaCon only.) These will be handed out for people to keep as that physical reminder and as an opportunity to be part of something truly great -- the SPN Family!
(If you want a tealight for yourself, please contact me ahead of time so I can figure out how much to ask you to donate - to cover the tealight, shipping, plus contribution to another tealight for someone else! I'm willing to ship worldwide.)
The first goal is $425 for the first batch, and $950 to get both batches. If you want a detailed breakdown of costs, I'm happy to provide it to you!
