The Ian Somerhalder Foundation Launches!

Vampire Diaries hunk Ian Somerhalder turned 32 yesterday and instead of birthday gifts, he’s asking his fans to rally together for causes that positively impact the planet and its creatures.

Here’s what the actor writes, “Supporting and nurturing all life on this pretty blue planet is a very important commitment I am taking to the next level. You may have heard that to create positive change I’ve started a foundation. Well it’s true! The IS Foundation aims to empower, educate & collaborate with people & projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.

“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.”

Ian needs to move away from formulaic teenage shows and start appearing in serious grown up action movies. He’s wasted otherwise.
