Wishes and a drawing from Cat

“Jared your smile empowers me, strengthens me, helps me grow.
Your smile reflects the passion in my heart and opens my up soul.
It helps me not to be afraid of my battle wounds and gives strength to fight my demons.
To stand solid against the storms of life, knowing I am not alone.
That naughty twinkle in the eye that hints at intelligence and compassion with a inner light that shines bright
and that still holds on to the child at heart.
You have so much talent to make me laugh and cry and you teach me how to love myself first.
Many blessings to you and yours on your special day“

Bex wrote a poem about Sam what she want to share with you.


Sam had the whole world in front of him when Dean showed up that day.
He said Dad´s on a hunting trip, it´s to long that he´s been away.
So he packed up and headed out, his brother by his side.
Seeking out the monsters, looking for where the demons hide.

He´s so much more than Deans little bro, he´s got so much love in his heart.
He flashes those puppy dog eyes and we all fall apart!
We love our great big nerdy Moose, he makes us laugh and cry,
he´s such an awesome hunter and the sweetest type of guy.

Sam Winchester is fierce, strong, loyal to a fault,
with him around we know that evil will come to a screeching halt.
He fights to save this world and his family, Sam is just the greatest guy, as you can plainly see.

Words and more from Sarah

"Hi Jared! I would like to wish you a very happy 38th birthday.
You mean so much to me and I’m very thankful to be getting this opportunity to tell you how much you mean to me.
My name is Sarah and I am 17 years old. There aren’t enough words that can fully express my gratitude that I have for you.
You’ve changed my life in the most positive ways.
When I first discovered Supernatural, I was just a 13 year old kid who was struggling to find their place in the world.
At that time I was really struggling with my mental health. I had no hope for the future and I couldn’t see beyond where I was.
Your infectious laugh, smile and positive words have been the light in the darkest of times, especially in these past four years.
Your encouraging words have always been there to guide me back to a positive outlook on life when my thoughts of hopelessness would take over.
I didn’t realize how much my life could be changed by three words said by one extraordinary person.
I will take the words “always keep fighting” with me for the rest of my life. I’m very proud to call you my hero. You’ve touched and saved so many lives and you deserve all the love and appreciation in the world. It had been my dream for the longest time to meet you and thank you in person. I got that opportunity in 2019 at SPNTor.
You may not remember me, but I’m hoping that you’ll remember the art that I brought to my photo op.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to me and my story, it’s a moment that I will remember in great detail for the rest of my life. I would also like to thank you for complimenting me on my art, it has encouraged me to keep practicing. After the Entertainment Weekly Photoshoot, I knew that I had to draw the cover. I’ll provide pictures of both of the drawings along with my photo op at the end of this letter. I can’t wait to see you again at SPNTOR 2021. You truly make the world a better place. I hope to one day inspire someone in the way that you have inspired me.
Thank you for being you. I hope that you have a great day.

With lots of love, Sarah"

Some words and a drawing from Claudia

“Happy Birthday, Jared. Thank you for your commitment to mental health. Without the AKF campaign and your open handling of psychological problems, I probably would not have recognized the signs and would have looked for help. I still have a long way to go. I am suffering from depression and PTSD but thanks to you and the SPN-FAMILY I know that it is okay not to be okay. I wish you all the best. Warm greetings from Germany “

A drawing and some words from Andria

“Here, we had a challenge & had to do a painting a day, which is hard in a house full of kids. I wish I’d have fixed some stuff but recently I’ve been working at not having perfection-paralysis toward myself. Which is also a big part of my #AKF & how you help me daily, still.
Happy Birthday Jared. “

May you receive even more blessings than you ask for, and may all good things continue to come your way.
I hope we can meet again in December, or whenever JIBCon can safely take place again so I can show you my new AKF tattoo,

Love you Vera”

Some words from Susan

“Jared, i hope you have a wonderful birthday!!
You have inspired how my life has been shaped more than you will ever know. You have such a beautiful soul and it has touched me so much.
Because of you the characteristics of being kind, caring, loving, generous, honest and supportive of other people's needs has made me a better person.
Your Always Keeping Fighting Campaign has helped through some of the darkest times of my life and I am so grateful for it everyday.
The show and the cast and crew has given me an extended family that I would have never thought would have existed without you.
I have watched the show since the pilot in 2005. My lifetime wish of 14 years came true last year in Vancouver at a Supernatural Con in 2019, I got to have a photo op with my hero and inspiration. I will treasure it always. Once again congratulations on the 15 years of Supernatural. The Winchesters will live on in my heart even after the series ends because Family Don't End In Blood. You, the cast and crew, and the Spn Family are my family.
I will love you always and forever, Susan“
