Jensen took to his social media to share an adorable photo of the Ackles’ family; the first photo of newborn twins Zeppelin and Arrow! Jensen originally shared the photo on his Instagram page, later sharing it to his Facebook also.
Simply captioned, “#family #happy2017 #spnfamily” we are sure Jensen is enjoying his time off with his family (just look at that smile!) before returning to Vancouver to continue shooting season 12 of Supernatural, which was recently renewed for a 13th season by the CW.
Jensen, Jared and Misha shared an update on their SPN Family Love Campaign yesterday on set, sharing information where some of the proceeds from the fundraising has gone to; watch the video below of their livestream (posted on Jared’s facebook page and shared by Jensen).

Today Jensen attended Entertainment Weekly’s first ever PopFest, alongside co-star Jared Padalecki. I have added HQ pictures from the event to the gallery and the panel was streamed live on Entertainment Weekly’s facebook page which you can view below.

Jensen has been very vocal on his social media about supporting his friend in funding the documentary film ‘ A Song For You’ which “compiles interviews, never before seen backstage footage, pivotal bookings and memorable moments to tell the story of the iconic AUSTIN CITY LIMITS TV show from its beginning with Willie Nelson, to where it is today― hosting music legends and premiering the music legends of tomorrow.”
Jensen even shared an adorable and hilarious video on his facebook page (which his wife Danneel tweeted about to make sure everyone checked it out) promoting the documentary as he made his way through the airport terminal to catch his flight to Rome for the Jus In Bello Supernatural Convention this weekend. If you can you can donate by visiting A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story at their donation page here.
If you watched the video you can see that Jensen had some trouble catching his flight, but made sure to let fans know he was safely on his way to the convention this weekend by sharing a cute photo!
Yesterday Jensen shared the exciting news on his social media accounts that himself and Supernatural friend and co-star, Misha Collins, have joined forces with Random Acts and Creation Stands to bring about a new project, You Are Not Alone. This campaign will work together with To Write Love On Her Arms and I’m Alive to fund the creation of a crisis support network to help those dealing with mental illness and addiction. Below is a statement from Random Acts website;
The Supernatural Fandom was the cornerstone of Random Acts’ beginnings and we continue to be supported by the community. It is with great joy and excitement that we announce a multi-faceted partnership with IMAlive and To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) to bring this new initiative to fruition. Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Creation Stands have joined together with Random Acts to provide support for this important program.
The #SPNFamily Crisis Support Network is a community support system that helps fans cope with mental health issues such as depression, self-injury, and addiction.
Misha on stage with fans
Together, and in partnership with Jensen and Misha’s “You Are Not Alone” Creation Stands T-shirt campaign (launching February 2016), we are raising funds to develop this online community platform. The platform will provide:
Training for fan volunteers who wish to be crisis responders in their spare time,
Immediate access to support lifelines for fans in crisis, and
Local community resources for those needing additional support or information.
We are developing this platform to work in tandem and partnership with two amazing nonprofits, IMAlive and TWLOHA. – [ source ]

A livestream video where Jensen briefly talks about the project and thanks fans for their support can be viewed from Misha’s facebook page;
Congratulations to Jensen on winning his first ever People’s Choice Award this week for Favourite Sci-Fy/Fantasy Actor, beating out David Tennant, Ian Somerhalder, Sam Heughan, and his Supernatural co-star Misha Collins.
While Jensen was sadly not able to attend the award show to accept his award, he posted a video on his official Facebook page, accepting his “award”….you can watch the hilarious video below.
Jensen also took time to thank Supernatural creator Eric Kripke on twitter for his support.
Earlier today, Arrow actor Paul Blackthorne, posted on his social media that Jensen is helping him out with his Represent campaign to save the elephants, “Poach Eggs, Not Elephants”. Paul shared a picture and video of Jensen signing a shirt that will be won by someone who purchases one of Paul’s shirts.
