We hope you're sitting down, Vampire Diaries fans. Because you might soon be sitting down with Ian Somerhalder!

In order to raise money for his charity, specifically to go toward the foundation’s plans to open an animal sanctuary, the actor has placed a lunch date with himself up for auction.

"A big component of ISF is not just habitat or species conservation, it’s animal protection and youth education,” Somerhalder told EW. “There are too many animals that are abused, mistreated, and abandoned. They’ve been ostracized, they have behavioral issues, and they’re starving. It’s just unbelievable what we’ve done to the animals, and I think that’s why this is so important.”

The auction will remain open through July 18 and you can submit your bid for Ian now.

To his potential bidders, Somerhalder adds: “Honestly, all I can say is thank you. I appreciate you and your generosity... I will try not to bore you to tears.”

Good luck to all!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
