Random Acts of Kindness::The Random Act.Org:: Misha Collins Changes The World

Updated on May 28, 2012

I want to tell you a story:

My second husband always told me that people were cruel to the kind. He said that "Kindness is perceived as weakness" and that "people tend to prey on those weaker than themselves."

I cried when he first told me that. I have always been kind. I am not kind because I am weak, but because I choose to be kind. I get angry, just like anyone else, I grow frustrated at injustice, I hate to see any innocent harmed. It grieves me to see someone be cruel to an animal, or a child, infuriates me to see someone yell at the elderly. Of course I lose my temper, all humans do. I don't want to but I do. Even so, I don't strike out at those weaker than myself...

When the earthquake hit in Haiti I had gotten laid off from work. I wanted to donate something anyway, even though I couldn't afford much. This meant I had to join Twitter. In order to donate you had to join. Well, my sister is on Twitter, so I found out I could see her more on Facebook, and that's where I found the man in this video... Someone shared it with me. I contacted Random acts and said the least I could do is write, I mean writing about and highlighting the special people who are trying to change the world... That's what I do best.


Meet Misha

Taking Over The World

I don't know how many Pinky and The Brain fans there still are out there, but the line was:

Pinky: "Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"

The Brain: "The same thing we do every night Pinky, try to take over the world."

Well, if anyone is going to take over the world I would want it to be someone who, like Misha, is thinking about the needs of the individual. If you haven't watched the above video, please do. It still brings a tear to my eye and I've lost count of how many times I watched it.

It is my plea: Join TheRandomAct.Org on Facebook, Subscribe to TheRandomActOrg on YouTube, Follow Misha Collins and The Random Act on Twitter. Check out the Random Acts blog on Wordpress.

Here's a list of some of the 2010 Random Acts:

  • Helped raise more than $30,000 for Misha Collins’ “Pony Up” Campaign for Haiti.
  • Presented a laptop and printer to a deserving child.
  • Bought new shoes for a 5-year-old boy and his surprised father.
  • Gave bicycles to strangers resting in a park.
  • Handed out toys to neighborhood children in Mexico.
  • Presented umbrellas to unsuspecting commuters in Korea.
  • Gave strangers flowers in France and England.
  • Provided supplies to children to create art in a square in Russia.
  • Misha Collins ran for over 11 hours and raised over $94,000 on Sept. 5th, 2010

According toThe Random Act on Twitter, donations for the run based on a per kilometer pledge at 83km. total, will be accepted for at least one more week.

As it says in the blog, resistance is futile, just join!


Who is Misha Collins?

My daughter would probably beat me for even thinking anyone would not know who Misha Collins is, but here goes.

Misha Collins plays the angel Castiel on Supernatural. Ironically my hubs seem to be making circles as well. A month ago I was writing about Leverage on TNT which led to some articles about singers Christian Kane and Steve Carlson, when I was asked to write about a couple of people who appear on the hit CW show Supernatural. Who would ever have thought the circle would lead me here.

Final Words

I know Misha Collins may not be a real guardian angel, he just plays one on TV. What he is doing with his time now may constitute a re-evaluation. Maybe Misha Collins is an angel walking among us, running for over 11 hours among us.

He's played many roles in many films and television shows. His face and voice are as familiar to me as if I've known him for most of my life, as they should be. He's appeared in many of my favorite shows, such as NCIS, ER, Nip/Tuck, Charmed and 24.

With his huge Supernatural fan base and broad spectrum of ideas, Misha Collins teaches us that we can make a difference in our world. We can change it by one Random Act of Kindness at a time. We can ask each other to join the crusade to change the world, and we can ask this without fear that our kindness will be perceived as weakness,

As for Misha Collins, his quest is seen as something more Supernatural, but maybe it is weakness... a weakness for humanities insanity. Maybe he can't look at a need without feeling his heart break, without wanting to cry, and the only way to keep from aching is performing that act of kindness. For me, I still cry when I play that video. I have no money. This is my way of at least passing on his message.

Let's help Misha conquer the world, One Random Act of Kindness at a time.

      Hey everyone I just wanted to say fist of all that I love Misha Collins and am a huge fan of him and supernatural. While he plays an angel on TV he is an angel in real life and nothing will ever change that. I am 12 years old and I might not know that much, but this I do know: Misha Collins is the kindest, nicest, most loving man I know, and I was lucky enough to meet him and be able to be in his presence.
