Hi, LiveJournal. We've known you and loved you, we've had a wonderful time and we'll never forget you, but it's time for us to leave.

We've taken the decision to focus on our other social channels. You can find us on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram. If you don't want to follow us there, you can still check our website for regular updates. Exciting times are ahead! Keep your eyes wide open.

Today we launched our brand new logo and website, in time to coincide with our very successful Twitter Party and a little something special that will be broadcast during the SPN finale.

May 18th has been a seriously great day for Random Acts and we're all very excited, but something even better is in progress. Our Hope 2 Haiti 2012 campaign is now at 78% of the goal figure with a total of $155,978 raised for the projects we're supporting in Jacmel. The JCC is under construction and should progress rapidly from this point on. There's slightly less than a month before the trip itself, with time to fundraise remaining after that. Maybe this year we can even beat the target amount!

It's a very exciting time for our friends in Jacmel, as well as for Random Acts, and we can't wait to push onwards and upwards. With your help, we'll continue to grow. Thank you so much for your continuing support. ♥

Our Random Acts co-founder (and self-styled Overlord) Misha has been through a lot this season on Supernatural. Cas has changed his wardrobe and taken to watching the apis mellifera, and we’ve heard that Misha’s pants have not been safe from on-set tomfoolery. To celebrate the finale with appropriate furor, we’re going to play some games, give out some swag, and prepare ourselves for the last episode before hellatus.

The details:

When is it? Friday, May 18th, at 7:30pm EDT. The plan is to wrap up by the time Supernatural airs at 9pm EDT, though those who want to continue to chat while watching the show are welcome.

How do I participate? Every tweet during the party will contain the hashtag #GetRandom. Using the hashtag is key: it is how we will receive tweets from those participating, so if you’ve got something to say, use the tag! To see what everyone else is saying, just track the tag on Twitter, and make sure your stream is refreshing.

To make this simple, it is recommended that you use a Twitter application such as Tweetchat (tweetchat.com). Tweetchat will allow you to type #GetRandom into the Search field, and then looks just like a chatroom. Tweetchat will also add the hashtag automatically to the end of your tweets for you, saving you a step.

Did you say ‘swag?’ We will have three prizes up for grabs: a beautiful piece of art made by one of the children of the ACFFC in Jacmel, Haiti; a leather H2H journal; and a “pony star” Random Acts tote bag.

Pro tip: If you want a prize, be prepared answer a barrage of trivia questions: don’t know what a Grünkohlfahrt is? It might be time to learn.

This year Random Acts will be donating a percentage of the funds raised by the Hope to Haiti campaign to the Art Creation Foundation for Children, a registered non-profit in both Haiti and the United States. Founded in 2003, the ACFFC serves vulnerable children and helps them to develop the artistic talents and confidence that will help them to earn a living in Jacmel.

If you'd like to contribute to the Hope 2 Haiti 2012 campaign, click here and hit donate!
