Happy Monday! ‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell and ‘Supernatural’ star Jared Padalecki decided to bare their six packs for a good cause! Stephen posted this picture on his Facebook page with a link to Jared’s fundraiser for his mental health awareness organization.

The actors are friends and are currently vacationing together. They must’ve gotten some time off from shooting ‘Arrow’ and ‘Supernatural,’ since most TV shows are back from their hiatus by now. Jared has been open about his struggle with depression. He explained the inspiration behind the ‘Always Keep Fighting’ campaign:
To a degree there is certainly a taboo attached to it still. There’s still a large portion of the population who just want to say, ‘Buck up. Put on a happy face and everything goes away.’ For some people, that works.
“For those of us who aren’t so blessed, the message ‘Always Keep Fighting’ is for us… Generation by generation, we’re slowly stripping away that taboo, that strange dynamic of, ‘Oh, there must be a problem with you if you feel this way.'”
SO true. Talk about a great message! And besides… I don’t think there’s ever a good reason for these two NOT to take off their shirts- LOL.
