Postcard Campaign for Jared and Jensen  
Hey my SPN flisties -

The Always Keep Fighting campaign has been amazing, but hearing all those stories can really take a toll as mentioned in this tumblr post from VanCon.

"So we were waiting in line for Jared’s auto when someone went up to him and told him a story that had him hugging her for a long time and when she’d gone he got mega-teary eyed and had to actually leave the auto table to compose himself. At this point Jensen had just finished and walked over to where Jared was behind the semi-opaque curtain (right next to us) and after some murmurings gave him a huge hug and a reassuring ‘you can do it brother, there’s not that many people left out there’ HONESTLY I nearly died on the spot."


So Winchesterwoman over on twitter and I came up with this campaign.

Feel free to tweet, tumblr, repost, reblog - anything to get the word out. Let's show our boys some love.

What a fantastic idea! I'll definitely be signal-boosting and participating -- thank you both. ♥

Oh boooys!!! *hugs them hard*

God, Jensen will be the death of me sooner or later. He's like that awesome big brother he happens to play on that one TV show. For reals. *smishes them both*

I can only imagine how difficult it sometimes is for Jared to get through this - even when he's feeling good mentally, listening to these stories constantly must take a toll. As Jensen once said, he's a big guy with an even bigger heart, and I'm sure he's affected by these stories.

I absolutely love your idea and will see if I can't find a ridiculously silly postcard or some such to send to these guys.

What's the deal with the girl on twitter not crediting you for the idea?!? ♥

Wow It’s made it here already. LOL Basically – I contacted her on Twitter and said DM me so we can get together and come up with something. We discussed a postcard/letter campaign; she made the graphic and used my idea for the title (#TakeCareOfOurBoys) I signed off on it and she sent it out. Immediately after that she unfriended me on Twitter. She got lots of compliments and never once acknowledged that I was part of it in any way.

I had Lotrspnfangirl post it on tumblr crediting the both of us. At which time, this individual refriended me on twitter to ask if was theatregirl. I said yes, why? She replied that she wanted to make sure it was me and promptly unfriended me again.

Then today on her twitter she posted a picture with a saying about how much more could be accomplished if people weren’t worried about taking credit for things. It may or may not have been a subtle jab at me.

While it is human nature to want to be recognized for our ideas (Lord knows, I love my fic comments lol), if she feels the need to behave this way, then that’s on her and not me. As long as the boys are taken care of that’s what matters.

Wow, yeah, okay then *hugs* long as you know what you did and that the guys have our support, that's all that matters hun! You're a good person ♥

So two quick questions:
(1) When are we sending these? Like, is there a range in time or anything?
(2) Are we including the #OperationTakeCareOfOurBoys on the postcards?
