The kindness/charity component is hugely important to me, but more than that, I want GISHWHES participants to take a week-long vacation from normalcy and see that life doesn’t have to be a certain way. – Misha Collins

Misha Collins is the evil genius behind GISHWHES; an annual week-long international scavenger hunt.  Misha was kind enough to answer my questions about this event.

What is GISHWHES?

Misha: It’s a very large (maybe the largest), unwieldy scavenger hunt that I cooked up a few years ago. We had a similar scavenger hunt when I was at the University of Chicago, and I guess I thought it would be a good idea to take the concept international. There’s a giant list of tasks, ranging from “cheese dress” to “voice activated toilet flusher.” You participate as part of a team of 15 people from all over the world (either your friends or people we put you with), and together, you photograph or film yourselves completing the tasks. You can play to win or play to have fun, but what’s important is that you play. The winners go on a trip with me to a destination of my choosing – this year it’s Iceland.

The things we do for Misha....

My favorite entry into GISHWHES 2012 – When I entered GISHWHES I had no idea what to expect, I certainly didn’t think I’d end up with a 3’x3′ skittle art portrait of Jensen Ackles proudly displayed on the wall of my home. But more than that, GISHWHES was my first true interaction with this amazing fandom, with the SPNFamily. For that I will be eternally grateful as through Supernatural and the fandom I have been lucky enough to form some truly wonderful friendships.

Please feel free to share your favorite GISHWHES entries with me or let me know what GISHWHES did for you.
