Ian Somerhalder Makes Birthday Plea to Fans

by at . Comments

A hearty happy birthday is due for Ian Somerhalder today, but The Vampire Diaries star doesn't want a card, a hug or even an iPhone 4 from fans.

Instead, the 33-year old would love fans to donate to his IS Foundation, a charity that looks out for the environment and which has already changed Canadian sled dog laws; delayed the Keystone XL Pipeline; and banned shark fins in California.

In the following video, Somerhalder makes this plea, asking supporters to give whatever they can. In exchange, you might have an email from Ian appear in your Inbox next week:

"Everyone who has it within their hearts to support ISF deserves some respect and love, and the only way I know how to give a little of this to so very many is to try my very best to try to send each and everyone of you a personal email," Somerhalder says. "I want to reach out so I can thank you for your support and learn a little about you to discover how you fit into this remarkable family."

You heard the man, readers. Visit the official ISF site now to donate!
