Beyond their looks and talent those two people have accomplished memorable things. Check out down below a quick review of their philanthropy.

Kat Graham.

In 2013 she became a high profile supporter of the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees) which she currently travels and campaigns for. She is a counsel member for GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), as well an ambassador for The Water Project and went on to help fund wells for clean water to be built for villages and schools throughout Africa.[x]

Ian Somerhalder.

Somerhalder was involved in the cleanup after the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling disaster on April 22, 2010. His efforts included cleaning of oiled wildlife and taping public service announcements to let the public know how they could help. Somerhalder also supports the St. Tammany Humane Society, an organization for animal shelter and welfare. On November 13, 2010, he hosted a Bash on the Bayou charity fundraiser for the Society. During the event, Somerhalder was presented with a donation of $11,100 by The Vampire Diaries fandom for his birthday project.

At the Comic-Con convention in July 2012 Together with his The Vampire Diaries co-stars Candice Accola and Michael Trevino, Somerhalder supports the It Gets Better Project, which makes it a goal to prevent suicide among LGBT youth associated with The Trevor Project.

Somerhalder announced, via Twitter and in various interviews that he was setting up “Ian Somerhalder Foundation” (launched on December 8, 2010, Somerhalder’s 32nd birthday), which he hopes will educate people on the importance of protecting the environment and animals: “Instead of gifts this year, my birthday wish is that we come together and raise funds to support projects that protect our habitat and nurture our furry friends.[x]
