The handsome, charming, admirable Ian Somerhalder is turning 33 Thursday, and he knows exactly how he wants to celebrate his birthday!
Thankful for all of the wonderful gifts of past, he wants to make sure everyone knows what to get him IF they choose to give him anything.
Instead of giving him a watch or a scrapbook, donate to his wonderful foundation.
He expresses his wishes, saying:
If you were intending to send me a gift for my birthday, thank you–seriously. It's incredible that people take time out just for me… but if you are intending to send a gift this year, I beg of you not to. Let's not add to our accumulated demand on this planet: resources, manufacturing, packaging, shipping.
Everyone who has it within their hearts to support ISF deserves some respect and love, and the only way I know how to give a little of this to so very many is to try my very best to try to send each and everyone of you a personal email. I want to reach out so I can thank you for your support and learn a little about you to discover how you fit into this remarkable family.
OMG! An email from Ian?? Get those checkbooks out!!
Watch his amazing message above and bask in his amazingness.
