TV Fanatic caught up with Ian Somerhalder at Comic-Con over the weekend, and while we had plenty of questions for the actor regarding The Vampire Diaries Season 4, we focused our interview instead on a more pressing cause:
His IS Foundation and its latest venture: building an animal sanctuary.
Somerhalder is auctioning off a date with himself in order to raise money for the cause, whose mission is to bring children together with animals in order to combat the former's bullying tendencies and create a meaningful bond between human and canine.
"We will bring the bruised together as a family to learn just how unique - and just very the same - we all are...and how if we unite...we are NOT the outcasted, we ARE the UNSTOPPABLE," the IS Foundation website reads.
Learn a lot more about the initiative, along with how you can help, now:
NOTE: Somerhalder is asking for 1,000 people to donate $10/per month. The owners and several staff members of TV Fanatic have already done so. Visit the ISF website now to chip in however you can.
