Ian Somerhalder recognized by Goody Awards of the Month for March 2013
Ian Somerhalder and IS Foundation wins 3 out of 5 Goody Awards of the Month.
Fans went wild by voting Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries) and his Ian Somerhalder Foundation as the winner for 3 out of 5 Goody Awards categories for March 2013, including Hero Goody of the Month @iansomerhalder, Eco Goody of the Month @iansomerhalder and Team Goody of the Month @IS_Foundation.
Big congrats to Ian Somerhalder for empowering youth to make a positive difference. His foundation inspires youth from all over the world to be more environmentally conscious, and take action where they see a need. Devon Haas was so inspired that she decided to donate her “tooth fairy” money to his foundation. ISF focuses on 5 key areas: Environment, Energy, Creatures, Youth and College Division, recently ran a “Quench Your Thirst Campaign” to reduce the use of bottled water. Ian, who is a Louisiana native, started ISF in 2010 after the BP Oil Spill. His force for good continues via social media, fans and more every day.
Fans tweeted Goody Awards for Ian and the IS Foundation mission from all over the world, and the messages are truly inspirational. Some fans even have their own ISF Twitter handles by country (Germany, Italy, etc.) Big thanks to the many voters, including: @ISF_Inspired (who started it all!) @Steffi_ISFGer @IanS_devotee @Irina_ISF @SimoneHi @BlossomBlunose @waleskalopez25 @TinaMLewis and more:
