Happy Birthday Ian Somerhalder!!

Its Ian's Birthday today (December 8th) and on behalf of us bloggers @SnarkyDee @riverrunswild @SparksTP & @TeamSpaceHeaters at Lost In Ian we would like to wish Ian a very happy birthday!

As we've previously reported Ian has made a foundation as a birthday gift to himself. All he's asking for is some support and if you can afford it to donate $32, which is a dollar for every year of his life. If you can't afford that much then please feel free to donate as much or as little as you can, every penny helps!!

This is what Ian has to say from his official foundation website:

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. I'm so very excited to be able to connect with everyone who wants to see change. Because of my heart-centered commitment, this year, my one and ONLY birthday wish is to help our planet and our furry friends.

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.

With birthday wish campaigns, it is customary to suggest a donation in relation to the age the person will be turning...Whoa... 32 years old this year, how did that happen? Whether you choose to give 32 dollars or more, or less, I’m going to appreciate your involvement in the IS Foundation start up in an immeasurable way. If you have it in your heart to donate, I want to thank you right now..... THANK YOU!

I can’t wait to begin working together with all of you. Please donate, it would mean the world to me and allow us to make change happen now as well as, put into play long-term change for our world and it’s inhabitants.

Love, Ian

  1. I got my t-shirt from Vampire Support, donated $250 to the birthday project, $64 to IS Foundation so far, and meeting up next week for Hats for A Cause...have I earned my fangirl status? LOL

  2. If you want to order one, lemme know. I can ship it off to you!

    I genuinely admire and respect him so much, and what he's trying to do. It's something that I can stand behind and there's not many actors you can say the same for. He's earned every bit of love and support his fans have for him.

    For him to know how much he'a affected me. That would just be icing on the cake. :)

  3. He's great about keeping us up to date. The foundation has a twitter account and he's helped by volunteers who update on an almost daily basis.

    I really have to say I am proud of the TVD fandom. They (we) have really stood behind Ian and supported what he believes in. One of the fansites started a project to donate money to a shelter he sponsors and the total amount raised was more than $11,000. The check was presented to him at the fundraiser he hosted for them a couple of weeks ago. That is amazing! She made it into an annual project, made a store, and has raised more than 5K in the few weeks she's had it up. And there are so many more ways this fandom has gotten involved. It's really awe-worthy.

  4. You have sooooo earned your fangirl status.... On some level I hope Ian reads this, simply to see how much support one fan can give.... Your awesome chick... I've donated the $32, but with vampire support being in the states I couldn't get my T-Shirt :(
