The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder is asking for charity donations in lieu of birthday gifts this year.
The IS Foundation aims to empower, educate & collaborate with people & projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.
“I’m so very excited to be able to connect with everyone who wants to see change,” says the actor. "Because of my heart-centered commitment, this year, my one and ONLY birthday wish is to help our planet and our furry friends.
“Instead of gifts this year, my birthday wish is that we come together and raise funds to support projects that protect our habitat and nurture our furry friends. If people truly feel like giving me a gift for my birthday this year, I hope you will consider giving a donation to the foundation. Giving to the foundation would be the best gift I could ever wish for, it would give us a chance to make change together.
“With birthday wish campaigns, it is customary to suggest a donation in relation to the age the person will be turning…Whoa… 32 years old this year, how did that happen? Whether you choose to give 32 dollars or more, or less, I’m going to appreciate your involvement in the IS Foundation start up in an immeasurable way. If you have it in your heart to donate, I want to thank you right now….. THANK YOU!”
