theaugustangels:

We’re already over halfway to our goal because of you. You are all incredibly generous and amazing — we’re struck completely speechless. Thank you so, so much for making this project a reality. We hope Misha is as touched by this as we are. Amazing. Thank you all SO MUCH for everything you’ve done. From the bottom of our hearts. Thank you.

We also want to take this post to make two updates on the home front:

  1. Follow our Twitter and tumblr pages — some exciting contests are coming soon! Prizes will be involved!
  2. Keep sending in your fan videos! They should be like the amazingly touching stories we keep receiving at We Love Misha, just in video form. (In case you were confused as to what we want in the videos.) We’ve received some amazingly touching videos so far and we hope to see more in the future!
    —Send them to augustangels@live.com
  3. If you can’t make a video, you can submit a letter to the scrapbook program we’ve also got going.

Again, thank you guys SO MUCH for helping to make this project such a success. You’re all a huge inspiration to us. If you want to donate to the cause, check out our Crowdrise page.

—The team at OAA

After today, this blog is going to be an official Misha Appreciation blog! Why limit Misha appreciation to just one day? Keep submitting your stories and we’ll be sure to post them here. We may wind up printing these all out and putting it into the scrapbook to give to Misha at a convention in the future.

Thank you again for sharing all of your stories and for participating in this wonderful and amazing event! Every May 31st shall now be known as MAD — Misha Appreciation Day. You’re all wonderful and your stories have touched us in every possible way.

Be sure to keep up with The August Angels as well, if you want to continue doing kind things for Misha. :)

From a newbie’s POV:
So, I’ve been in the SPN fandom for not even a year now, and that’s not nearly long enough to get to know the actors. But you know, with Jensen and Jared, I feel like I’ve learnt all there is to know about them, and I’m very rarely surprised with what they say or what they do. I’m not degrading them in any way, it’s just… With Misha Collins, he throws something your way, just when you think you know him. I’m still learning and I just… It is so hard to put into words how much this guy is an inspiration to me. I literally am speechless. It’s why I have to collect all these little bits of information about Misha and keep them, so when someone asks, I can just throw it all at them and say ‘read’. Because there’s no easy way to put into words how much Misha does, how nice he is, how perfectly human he is. He’s like the shiny new toy a child wants to wave under everybody’s noses. You just want to walk up to people in the street and shake them and say ‘Why don’t you know Misha Collins? Why don’t you know what astounding things this man has done?’ Of course, Random Acts aside, he has this amazing personality that’s just so free. 
And it’s who I want to be. I want to be this person who gives, like Misha, and just doesn’t care. I could go on. We all could. Misha Collins is a brilliant man.
I know that because of all this, people tend to compare him to an angel - and not just because of the role he plays.
But you know what I do? When I stumble across yet another flawless, perfect thing that Misha has said/done/is going to do, I tag it as such:

"Can we make this an annual holiday? Also, will you keep the tumblr up when Misha Day's over? *crosses fingers*"

And yes I think we should make this annual! Or we should just go ahead and do this every month. Hahaha Last day of the month will always be Misha’s day how about it? lol

Well… I’m still thinking about it. Because this blog is practically like my other blog. I reblog only Misha/Cas there. The only thing different is that here people are sending me stories and things about Misha on the ask box. 

I might find someone to run it and keep it going. But I don’t think I can run two blogs at once. haha We’ll see.

"what about recommending us some fanfics with misha in it"

Oh my God. Well… anon, some people are sending the link to this blog to the cast and him. I don’t think it’d be appropriate to post fanfics here. Hahaha. Sorry.

"I fully endorse this excellent endeavor of yours, and you have my unbridled (and potentially dangerous) support. Cheers and delicious pancakes to you!"

Haha Thank you so much. It’s always great to show some love, specially when other people are trying to do the opposite. Thank you so much for your support. <3

"hey tabby are we supposed to trend the tag tomorrow or today? i didn't get that part."

I thought it’d be best for us to join forces tomorrow. But we should start tweeting the tag today. So we can spread the word ;) But tomorrow is the real deal.
