“Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles and his family are currently in the process of preparing to open their Family Business Beer Company in the Texas Hill Country but are stepping forward, fundraising for those that are hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey.

Over the weekend, Ackles and his team showed their true Texas philanthropic side, organizing a fundraiser for relief in the wake of the hurricane, and their fans have stepped up quite quickly. Their short-term goal was earmarked at $100,000, and already that number (at the time of article printing,) was over $118,000, with just over 3,000 people donating.

Comments from the organizers on the fundraising page stated, “We are partnering with Random Acts to make sure 100% of this drive goes to families impacted by this tragedy.” Working through crowdrise.com, Ackles and his family and co-workers from Family Business Beer Company have partnered with Random Acts, a nonprofit organization designed to focus on large and small acts of kindness in an effort to change the world. Founded by his “Supernatural” cast member, Misha Collins, it’s obvious that the stars of this show are all about giving back.

Family Business Beer Company has advised that they will keep people informed with respect to their charitable dollars and how they’re put to work for those that have suffered great loss at the hands of Hurricane Harvey. With the majority of the Houston area presently under catastrophic flooding levels and cities such as Rockport and Corpus Christi experiencing damage of epic proportions, there will be a lot of causes that this money can be donated to.
