BENEFITING: IAN SOMERHALDER FOUNDATION
Trying to make tomorrow a better place, even if for just one person. Your help does make a difference.
This year I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. With so much going on in the world today (environmental disasters, hunger, infectious diseases etc.) help is needed everywhere, whether that's close to home or 10,000 miles away. All of these problems affect both us humans and also the creatures we share this planet with.
I consider myself fortunate to be living the life I have been given, but I know not everyone is this lucky. So I would like to try to make tomorrow a better place, even if that means I can only reach one person/being, or contribute to just one disaster relief effort. Because I am convinced that help is needed in any way, shape or form all around the world and I know our help can make a difference. So with this in mind, for my birthday instead of buying me a gift, or a drink or taking me out to dinner, I ask that you make a donation no matter how small (no amount is small for someone/something in need) to the charity I have chosen.
I have chosen the IS Foundation because I truly believe in what they are looking to accomplish which is empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and all of its creatures. I also like the fact that they have a variety of projects under way and their focus is on global problems and challenges.
I'd like to believe that if all of us could pause our busy lives for just a moment, we would see how much change we can create in this world with minimal effort. So this year on my birthday, I hope to make a small change in someone's life or towards the well-being of the planet as whole, and help build a better tomorow for all of us.
Thank you for your support!
