‘Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder is winning an award! Yep, Ian set to receive the ‘World of Good’ award at the Carmel Art and Film Festival later this month. So, how did Somerhalder win this award?

The actor has been named the first ever recipient of honor. Ok, so a first annual ‘World of Good’ isn’t nearly as prestigious as a lifetime achievement award or the Nobel peace prize, but at least Ian Somerhalder is being recognized for his work.

The award, sponsored by Tiffany jewelry, is given to “an influential actor, filmmaker or artist who is using their notoriety to ‘do good work.'”

So, what ‘good work’ has Ian Somerhalder done? He has been immersed in the ‘green’ movement, being quite vocal about getting his young fans involved in environmental initiatives. It is Somerhalder’s use of social media that helps connect with his young, but technically adept audience.

It was just this past Monday (October 3) where he tweeted about his disgust over animal abuse of cats and dogs in the Ukraine.

You’ve GOT to be kidding me- what year are we in? This needs to stop Ukraine!

This is just one example of many for the award-winning Ian Somerhalder. Will he continue to use his high-profile as an actor to try to make a difference? Most likely, he will try to keep using his influence over his young fans to effect a change in the way people look at and treat the environment. At least this is what the Tiffany Co. sees in awarding him the ‘World of Good’ honor.
