Twitter petition launched to get Ian Somerhalder’s Foundation on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!


Ian Somerhalder may be an undead bad boy as Damon on The Vampire Diaries, but in real life there’s no doubting that the guy’s got lots of heart.  He has created a nonprofit foundation that collaborates with a range of organizations dedicated to  making this world a better place and boy, do we need this kind of effort.  The Ian Somerhalder Foundation partners with non-profits, companies and governing bodies globally to effect positive change in the environment, energy resources and animal welfare.

The group’s initiatives, as outlined on their website, include: 

  • Distributing funds and resources towards global conservation, green energy development/deployment and educational tools.
  • Creating awareness that global deforestation can be seen as a national/international and global security risk.
  • Creating mobility by engaging and supporting of the most powerful, yet disregarded, disrespected and overlooked population on the planet – our youth.
  • Ending animal cruelty and promoting programs such as: “species specific sterilization drugs”, transferring and re-training of abandoned animals into assistive and therapy guides.
  • Supporting and creating sustainable strategies for “no-kill shelters.” 

I came upon Ian’s foundation this morning while surfing Twitter where I saw a tweet about a “twitition” asking for signatures from Ian fans to support a drive to get him and his foundation featured on the Ellen DeGeneres show. This is a cause I can definitely get behind and I hope you will, too. Visit the Twitter page here and help get Ian’s great work spotlighted on Ellen!
