Misha Collins, widely known for his role as Castiel on CW’s Supernatural, is back to the activist grind with a new fundraising venture. This time, it’s a gofundme page that seeks to raise enough money to purchase the private data of the Congress members who have voted to sell our personal data to the highest bidders. Of course, it’s not exactly as simple as selecting which guy’s browsing history you want to see and paying a fee to get a glimpse at it, as many, many others have pointed out, but it’s a gesture nonetheless designed to keep people–namely, the legions of fans invested in the Misha Collins persona–informed, interested, and engaged. Far more law-savvy folk than I have breached the tangled mess of lies and truths concerning the Obama-era law that was recently overturned, and I suggest doing your own research and making sure you know everything you possibly want to know in order to make any decisions regarding donating to campaigns like these. Though unlikely to yield results that many people are hoping, this campaign does serve to keep people active and will make for a hefty donation. Donate. Don’t donate. I can only weigh in on one aspect, and it’s that Misha Collins does good with every action he takes.
Thanks, Congress, for voting to put all of our private data up for sale! We can’t wait to buy yours. https://t.co/t8pq3p470f
