We could write this post all about how much we’d like to go for a swim in Ian Somerhalder’s beautiful eyes, or how much Damon makes us squeal and laugh and cry every week on The Vampire Diaries. But the funny thing about Mr. Smolderholder is that’s probably not how he wants us to celebrate his 34th birthday today. Instead, he’d really, really like us all to donate to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation — which supports initiatives for the environment and animals — via the Mozilla Firefox Challenge on Crowdrise.com, so that he can get the company to ante up $50,000.
It looks like fans are doing their part so far, but if you need a little motivation, here’s a gallery showing Ian being a beautiful person, inside and, yeah, outside too:
