If you participated in GISHWHES before, LOG IN to choose a registration tier. If you didn’t, please complete the form below.


We wish we could do GISHWHES for free because your acts of art, compassion and insanity are an absolute inspiration to us, but we do have costs, including: an extraordinary Grand Prize; program, web, operating and administrative expenses; and substantial annual charitable donations. Each year, the 15 members of the Winning Team plus support staff are flown to an exotic locale - in the past it’s been Rome, Scotland, and British Columbia. This year the winning team will be flown to join Misha Collins and his spider monkey in a Costa Rican adventure of volcanos, rain forests and discotecking. Since GISHWHES was spawned half-baked from Misha’s mind, we have been the single largest supporter of Random Acts2, 501c3 (donating tens of thousands of dollars each year). We hope to keep all of this madness, art and generosity sustainable so we’ve designed multiple registration tiers1 that will enable everyone to participate.
(Items offered with registration will be delivered to you via courier pigeon when we open the GISHWHES Shwag Shwop or earlier. Please leave your window open a crack.)

    • This option is for people who really have trouble paying $18.89 so please don’t take up one of the spots unless you absolutely need the aid.
  • 1 None of these tiers are tax deductible.
    2 Staff members of Gishwhes serve on the Board of Directors of Random Acts and are in compliance with Random Acts’ conflict of Interest Policy.

Please confirm that you are registering for level:$18.89 - Basic Registration for GISHWHES!
