If you have been following Danneel’s tweets lately, you may have noticed a project/fundraiser that she mentions a few times.
The back story of this fundraiser is of an attempt to fund raise $125,000 to fund a documentary about Austin City Limits TV show. Now as a non-American, I can’t say I’ve heard of it before but I do appreciate music and the spirit of coming together to fund exciting projects!
Below is a little about the fundraiser:
A Song For You: The Austin City Limits Story, 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.
This documentary is the ultimate archive on the impact Austin City Limits has had on our appreciation and passion for music. A Song For You meets the people behind their celebrity stardom to show that musicians are fans too, reaching for blissful musical experiences. 40 years in the making. Over 800 performers. And here we have it: Your front-row seat and backstage pass.
Artists featuring in it include Dave Grohl, Florence and The Machine, Jeff Tweedy, Beck, Sturgill Simpson and more.
For those who send donations, they can receive various perks. These include shoutouts, posters, merchandise and lots of other VIP goodies!
One of the main reasons for the fundraiser is due to the fact A Song For You has numerous songs and footage in the documentary where the rights to play these have to be paid for. It is also an independent film, free from corporate sponsors.
Overall this such an important documentary in terms of music culture, as well as Austin culture, and it would definitely pay for people to check this campaign out, share it on social media and also possibly donate! There is currently just a week left to raise the full $125,000 or else no funds are received! Currently $90,220 has been raised – it is do-able! We will post regular updates on our Twitter to let followers know how it’s going.
Let’s help them do this!

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.
ICYMI last night–Birthday gift for Ethan, a disabled SPN fan who turns 13 this year and wants a ride in an Impala.https://www.gofundme.com/24mjpzg?pc=14_tw_up&rcid=d6f0c2281c3011e6a870bc764e04c5a7 …
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!’
It’s always great to see the Supernatural fandom coming together to help others! As of now, they have officially reached the $1000 target they set out for!
In the mean time, you can send birthday cards to Ethan via the PO Box address below!

Today, 15th May, is a special day as it is Jensen and Danneel’s 6th wedding anniversary, having married this day in 2010. It’s hard to believe 6 years has already flown by so quickly, and here is to another 6 years (and 6 after then, and another 6 and so on :D).
Fans For Danneel wishes them the best of days, and hope they enjoy it with their family and friends!
Feel free to also check out our wedding album of Jensen and Danneel in the gallery, following the link below!

Before Jensen travels to the UK to appear at the newest Asylum convention, he and Danneel have been doing a little travelling around the USA. Posting this selfie on his Instagram, don’t they look loved up?!
I really hope Danneel and JJ goes with Jensen to the UK, and enjoys a day out. Who knows, maybe some nice candids? (Obviously no Justice pics would be added for privacy reasons!)
Check out the picture in our gallery below (I also added one other image we were missing):

That’s not exactly the full title of the event but it was a bit too long to include it in the header, so for for your information it was ‘The Austin Police Department’s Officer’s Distinguished Awards Ceremony‘, held last night to honour more than 30 people for distinguished service.
You can read up about the recipients here, very interesting to see a lot of their stories that were also no doubt scary!
On a less serious note, Danneel attended with Jensen, Jared and Genevieve and they all looked completely amazing! I’m really loving Danneel’s new hair look, whether it’s been dyed or just cut differently; she looks good either way!
I’m a little sad we only have one group picture, but at the end of the day the event is more important! Congratulations to the recipients and we hope Danneel and co had a great time!

An article where the author actually speaks the thoughts of Danneel’s fans:
‘The character of Rachel Gatina is pretty under appreciated in my opinion.’
That right there tells me this is a good, good list. The Richest posted this article including a countdown of where the OTH stars are now. Although I would have been inclined to include other projects in Danneel’s section (such as Friends With Benefits, Baby Bootcamp etc), it was still nice to see her mentioned in another OTH related article.
Really makes me want to see Danneel actually attending an One Tree Hill convention. Anyway, below is what was mentioned in relation to her:
The character of Rachel Gatina is pretty under appreciated in my opinion. Danneel Harris Ackles was able to bring the perfect balance of dramatics and comic relief. She always brought the entertainment to One Tree Hill. She has not really been in the spotlight these days but she has had some guest roles on television in shows like CSI: Miami and Retired at 35. Danneel Harris Ackles’s most high profile gig was probably the movie A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. She has also been in some television movies. This just makes me wish that she was back on TV again full time. The fandom is so ready for it.

Honestly, at this point should it be any surprise that once again, the site has had a new design renovation? Not really, especially when it comes to this picky owner. Personally I feel I’ve exhausted every Danneel photoshoot that I can and wow, isn’t that a sign we should have more photoshoots? Hint, hint Danneel!
Anyway, we’re really happy to show off our design, based on her 2006 LA Confidential photoshoot, and it’s probably the most basic theme we’ve ever had! Not basic as in ‘ew she’s so basic‘, but rather no fancy features; just a pretty awesome header, nice colours and perfect coding. But look at how pretty the header is?! Gratrix Designs did an inspiring job, I must say. And yes they did also design our, sadly not used, PHP Motion Video archive. View at your own risk, the Vault is much more organised. Speaking off, I feel the urge of a new theme for the Vault- thoughts? Yay or Nay?
Anything new on the site?
Well, surprisingly no. Not really. Normally I have tonnes of newly added features, but I’ve actually removed some things. We don’t need all that ol’ clutter nobody uses, that I worked really hard on, practically hours. Sad face. Ok jokes.
But we do have a pretty snazzy career page for Danneel, designed by Kaci. Like how awesome and relaxing and wow is it to browse Danneel’s projects in an organised manner?
Also I did take the liberty in updating 2 sets of screencaps – now we can see HQ shots of Danneel in the
amazingly, wonderful Extreme Movie.
Home > Movies > Extreme Movie > HQ Screencaps
Plus HQ screencaps of her as Jill in Naughty or Nice, and please be warned you can now see she is wearing the most amazing high heels, with a cute tiny bow. Lordt…

Anyway, that’s all for now. Let’s pray that we get more Danneel news/events/photoshoots/anything at this point!

How lucky are we that Bjoern has decided to share another throwback image of one of his photoshoots with Danneel?! This time, it’s a shot of Danneel on the sand, one of my personal favourites!
Again big thanks to Bjoern for sharing this – he knows how to treat Danneel fans!
