We have photos of Paul Wesley accepting the Humane Generation Award at the Humane Society of The United States 60th Anniversary Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on March 29, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California. You can view more photos from the event over at Zimbio.

Variety reports that Paul took the stage and credited the many Vampire Diaries fans with helping him spread the word.

When “The Vampire Diaries” star Paul Wesley took the stage at the Humane Society of the United States’ 60th anniversary gala, the actor noted his discomfort with having his accolades announced as he shared, “I’m kind of blushing.”

The Humane Generation honoree has used social media to educate his millions of followers about the horrors of factory farming and credited the legions of dedicated ”Vampire Diaries” fans with helping him spread the word.

“I know that one of the main reasons that I’m here is because I happen to be on a television series that has a massive youth following,” Wesley said.

He also expressed that his experiences with the fans have led him to belief that the future work of orgs like the HSUS is in good hands.

This past weekend, I attended the Creation Entertainment Official TVD Convention where I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie Bewley. There, Charlie mentioned his new project Thunder Road. Wanting to help support, I asked fellow TVD fan and Thunder Road supporter, Nadine Lam Watt, to give us a little insight into what Thunder Road is all about and how you can help this great cause!

As Galen Vaughn on The Vampire Diaries Charlie Bewley is no stranger to dealing with adversity, and while his attempt to best the elusive Silas may have led to his untimely end, one can only hope he’s successful in his newest endeavor.

On July 31 Charlie’s production company Astoria Entertainment launched a campaign to fund their very first film Thunder RoadThe film is “a no holds barred account of post war life” as described by Astoria co-founder and writer, Steven Grayhm. Grayhm was inspired to create the film because he felt that there were no current films that spoke to the issue of veterans acclimating themselves back into civilian life as well as their issues with mental health including PTSD. “We will work hard every day to do everything humanly possible to make sure that Thunder Road gives a voice to the ghosts who walk amongst us.”

“There is no movie out there for this generation’s soldier which truly explores the psychological repercussions of life after war.” says Grayhm.

Grayhm was further motivated to create the film after going across the USA with Astoria co-founders Charlie Bewley and Matt Dallas, to speak with veterans and other people affected by the experiences of those who have served. Grayhm has taken first-hand accounts of these struggles and used them to create the script, allowing Thunder Road to serve as a voice to millions who have a very important story to be told. “We will be the messengers for those who need to be heard. This we believe in and will keep alive.” says Dallas.

“We pledge to make an honest and authentic film that represents the true struggles and triumphs of the brave men and women around the world who have written a blank check to their god and government with their lives to uphold and fight for our freedoms…” — Matt Dallas, Steven Grayhm and Charlie Bewley.
