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!
