Calling all activists! Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) has been working hard to raise money for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation’s latest project: an animal sanctuary that doubles as an education facility for troubled kids, which he told us about back in April. You’d think Ian would be able to Kickstarter the heck out of that with his diehard fans, but according to his Twitter, the actor is having a little trouble getting the funding he needs.

 

Oh have some ISF animal sanctuary news. I’m so grateful for your support. We're extremely shy of our need of 1000 out of 7 billion people to help. Deadlines suck but we lose our option on the land in a few days. Pls. If you can-pls pledge $10 per month for 1 year! Thanks!” he wrote, including the link to ISF.

Ian is currently in England for the
Insurgence 4 Convention, so you know it’s important to him if he’s taking his eyes off the beautiful scenery to tweet his pleas.

Click over to the ISF if your pocketbook is as big as your heart.
