Misha’s Minions Want YOU to Buy Farm Animals for the Holidays
A group of Misha Collins fans, including previously interviewed Shatterproof Challenge participant Ari, have dubbed themselves Agents of M.I.S.H.A and have started a holiday campaign in the name of kindness. The campaign, called Holiday Heifer, aims to buy livestock for families in need through the Heifer International charity. Though the money will be going to the Heifer International charity, the idea is inspired by the goals of Misha’s charity Random Acts, which encourages people to perform random acts of kindness daily to make the world a better place. While Misha isn’t directly involved with the project, all funds are being raised in his name. When the project is complete, he will receive a card detailing what animals have been purchased on his behalf.
The campaign is set to run through December 24th with the aim of raising $500 to purchase “flocks of chicks, rabbits and even some larger animals like goats or cows if [they] raise enough money.” According to the website, the livestock ranges from $20 for a flock of chicks to up to $500 for a cow. There are also specialty “baskets” such as the Milk Menagerie, which provides four milk-producing animals, and the Gift Ark, which includes “two water buffalos, two cows, two sheep and two goats, along with bees, chicks, rabbits and more.” The animals can be used in any way the recipients see fit, whether it’s for the eggs, milk, wool, or to raise as food. With their goal of $500, the group has the power to affect not only dozens of families directly, but entire communities by introducing much needed products to the economy.
Misha’s kindness continues to inspire the fandom to pull off amazing things. As of this writing, the fund has raised $120 towards their $500 goal, but come on, we’re the fandom that helped build an orphanage and community center in Haiti and just started a school project in Nicaragua. Let’s not only meet that goal, but let’s shatter it. Let’s buy a cow, a dozen flocks of chicks, and toss in some rabbits for the hell of it. Come on, minions. Let’s send some livestock to communities in need in the name of Misha.
