As a lot of you are aware, Ian Somerhalder is desperately trying to raise funds through his foundation, ISF, to open an eco-friendly animal sanctuary in his home state of Louisiana. But not just any animal sanctuary. The aim is to provide a place for outcast, neglected, and mistreated heavenly creatures, with their two-footed human counterparts that have bullying problems learning to care for them. It’s a win-win! The kids will find compassion through caring for the animals—who accept love so easily and want it so badly! The animals will get to teach the kids about love and kindness, the kids will learn how great it is to care, and maybe all their lives will be the better for it!
Time is running out. The desired land needs to be purchased quickly or it will be back to the drawing board. Ian figured it out for us: If 1000 people pledge/donate $10 a month for one year to get this off the ground ISF can make the purchase! Less than the cost of most movie nights out, your online video service, or what you spend on junk food in a month!
We’re sending out an SOS to all loyal Vampire Diaries Online readers to please help ISF save animals, stop bullying, and support ISF’s goal of building a sustainable future for them. Added bonus, there will be great volunteer programs to spend time at the sanctuary!
Won’t you help Vampire Diaries Online, ISF, and Ian Somerhalder reach the short-term goal by visiting the ISF Animal Sanctuary Donation page and making a donation or pledge? Thanks for answering our SOS!

The CW and Bing have once again teamed up to bring you insight into what the cast does in their spare time. So far we only have videos from Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder. I’m hoping we see more from other cast members. We’ll also get to see more during the Season Finale.

As many of you may already know, Ian Somerhalder and his brother Bob have started a very unique business. Built of Barnwood is special that it takes vintage wood to create usable art pieces and decor items for your home.
Via Built of Barnwood’s website:
BOB is a collaborative effort between two multi talented brothers. Built of Barnwood is based in the charming coastal town of Bay St Louis Mississippi. They are focusing on reclaiming, recycling and re-purposing vintage wood and building materials. Once reclaimed they are turned into usable artwork, home furnishing and design accent pieces. Together Bob Somerhalder and Ian Somerhalder strive for a greener more sustainable economy. With this green desire in mind, they have launched a clean and sustainable business that is a hot and trendy product line for home decor and furniture.
And today, they are trying to sell 1000 Earth Day Green Crosses by midnight. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. But that’s not all, if you purchase 5 crosses, you will receive a personalized autographed photo from Ian himself! FREE Shipping is only available to those living in the 48 US states. International shipping will be billed separately. So to help this great cause and unique business, head on over to Built of Barnwood to get yours now!
