It’s well know that Danneel is invested with Supernatural and the numerous fans that follow it, so it wasn’t a surprise when she helped in soon making a young boys dream come true!
Right now, on social media like Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter, a campaign has been going around to help 13 year old Ethan achieve one of his birthday wishes in having a ride in a 67 Chevy Impala, the same one in Supernatural as he is a massive fan! His family set up a fundly page where people can donate, but also were hoping to raise awareness to SPN cast members to help make his dream come true.
Ethan himself suffers from Epilepsy, Autism and Cerebral Palsy. You find out a little bit more by reading this news article that covered the story.
On Twitter, Danneel RT’d a tweet and soon after we got an update via the family’s fundly page that Jensen was going to set up a Facetime call with Ethan, as he would be on set.

According to their update, Danneel saw the tweet and emailed them to let them know she showed it to Jensen, and also what was happening!
‘Amazing news!!! I received an email from Danneel Ackles and she not only saw our campaign but showed it to Jensen! He will be back to work when Ethan’s birthday comes around but we are setting it up so he can FaceTime with Ethan on his birthday!’
