Could William Shatner ("Star Trek") be serious about his desire to join in on this year's round of GISHWHES? If his Twitter account is to be believed he is, and he's looking for people to join his team.
GISHWHES, or the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, was created by actor Misha Collins, Castiel of "Supernatural." Collins, the creator of Random Acts created GISHWHES in 2011 as a way to further the goals of and to fund his charity, "...an organization poised to conquer the world, one random act of kindness at a time."
For a small registration fee, fans join together to form teams of fifteen individuals. From there they are given a list of items which must be made, found, or accomplished and then photographed, filmed, and uploaded to either Youtube or imgur. They must then post a link to the GISHWHES website.
Somehow William Shatner managed to stumble across GISHWHES last year. When his confused tweets about the scavenger hunt were brought to Collins' attention, Collins befriended the star and explained a bit about the scavenger hunt. Shatner kept tabs on both GISHWHES and TheRandomAct and has decided, this year, that he would like to join a team and participate.
If you would be interested in joining Shatner's team, contact Shatner's assistant on the Shatner Project, Paul Camuso, at PaulCamuso@gmail.com to explain why you believe you'd be a perfect fit for the team.
