Because Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries) has won Hero Goody of the Month three times, he was honored at the Social Good Summit in NYC with one of the first Hero Goody Necklaces. On the 92Y rooftop on the upper east side of Manhattan, Ian accepted this necklace from Goody Awards Founder Liz H Kelly. This Hero Goody Necklace represents global citizens making a difference, and supports Free The Children.
Ian is not only a social good leader, but he inspires others to do good through his ISF foundation, support for RYOT News (board member) and active Twitter voice. Born in New Orleans, Ian started ISF (Ian Somerhalder Foundation) after the BP Oil Spill to empower youth to do green projects. ISF is a non-profit organization promoting animal rights and environmental causes.
Ian Somerhalder’s fans have voted for him on Twitter from over 20 countries. Below are some of these cheers from his fans.
