Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit? Look no further than Ian Somerhalder’s ISF Valentine’s Day t-shirts. The Vampire Diariesstar is always on the lookout for ways to get the message out about his non-profit, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and this holiday season, he’s doing it with the help of elephant heart t-shirts.
“Help support ISF with this super soft T-shirt!” reads the description for the t-shirt over at TheVanityProject.org, where you can purchase said shirt. The design features two elephants whose trunks meet to form a heart with a red heart in the background. Basically, they’re adorable — and totally apt given the IS Foundations’ mission to “empower, educate, and collaborate with people to positively impact the planet and its creatures.”
Proceeds from t-shirt sales will benefit the charity’s environmental projects, and Ian is already overwhelmed with the support he’s gotten through t-shirt sales: “You all ROCK,” Ian tweeted on February 4. “If I see you in public wearing one of these ISF Valentine’s Day Tshirts — expect a hug!” If you don’t do it for the animals, do it for the hug.
For those looking for a different look, the print is also available on pullover sweatshirts (black and purple) and v-neck t-shirts (black and pink). Unfortunately, if you order the t-shirts now, you probably won’t get them by Valentine’s Day (the site lists February 3 as the last order day to ensure V-Day delivery). But, we don’t think that hug offer will ever expire. Plus, helping the planet and its many creatures is classy every day of the year!Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
