Zap2it‘s Carina Mackenzie (follow her on Twitter) had a chat with Ian Somerhalder yesterday. This time, they discuss his newly represented “Ian Somerhalder Foundation”. The actor talks about his future (environmental) projects and gives information how you can help. It’s a really interesting read, so check it out! Read an excerpt below and head over to Zap2it for the entire story.
“I don’t want to be the guy who sets up fantasy dinners and asks a bunch of rich people for money,” says Somerhalder. “I just don’t know that world, I don’t relate to it, and I don’t want to. It’s so much easier for a million people to donate a little tiny bit, then to get 100 people to donate a lot. What’s really exciting for me in the inspiration realm, is to see kids, people who are going through a rough time or people who have found a tough spot they can’t get out of – to see them become inspired again. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
So how can you help? Visit ISFoundation.com to find out how you can donate to the birthday campaign. If you’re not in the position to donate or if you’re looking for other ways to help, follow @IS_Foundation and @iansomerhalder on Twitter and spread the word by telling your friends, blogging, and Facebooking about the cause. Join the revolution for a greener, brighter future!
