We were planning on eating a red velvet cupcake, toasting with a glass of wine, and listening to “Put Your Graffiti on Me” on repeat to celebrate Kat Graham’s (Bonnie Bennett) 23rd birthday, but the civic-minded sweetie has a better idea: donate to The Water Project.

The Water Project has long been a passion for The Vampire Diaries actress, and on Twitter today, she asked her fans and followers to give what they could to the organization. The donations are used to build wells in areas of the world with little potable water. Great cause!

Happy birthday, Kat! We can still have a cupcake, though, right?
