Ian Somerhalder is an actor, activist, comic book hero (it’s true!) and this past Sunday he was a birthday boy. While Ian turned 35, his Ian Somerhalder Foundation also had a b-day, and the actor/activist/comic book hero asked people to donate to his foundation in lieu of gifts.

Ian Tweeted:

“I have a goal this year… we can get 1 million people of the 7 billion on the planet to donate $35 dollars,” he wrote. “I know it sounds simple, but all donations big and small fuel our resources to continue expanding and making change for the voiceless of this planet: our skies, seas, energy, habitats and of course our furry friends.”

Even though his birthday has passed, that doesn’t mean he’d no longer be thrilled to get donations (or other forms of support) going toward ISF. He understands that people aren’t made of money, and you might not be able to donate $35 now, or at all. He explained, “So if you can donate now, two months from now or at my birthday thank you. Or maybe you can donate less than six dollars a month over the next six months. If you can’t donate then you can spread the word about this year’s birthday wish.”

If you look around the ISF site, you’ll see different ways you can get involved (plus ISF merch you can buy for yourself and your friends this holiday season). Ian does so much good to help the world, you know he’d have to become a comic book hero sooner or later.
