Mingle Media TV’s Red Carpet Report and host JJ Snyder were invited to come out and cover the Ian Somerhalder Foundation’s (ISF) intimate gathering of tastemakers, influencers and celebrities all in support of the foundation’s efforts to improve the environment and the world we live in. The Influence Affair also celebrates ISF’s collaborative Get Dirty where you live, work & play initiative with the California Coastal Commission and Heal the Bay in the hopes of creating cleaner beaches and a cleaner state.
We got to speak with several celebrities on the Red Carpet starting with Ian who shared his passion for this project, his foundation and getting dirty. Guess what tops the list of trash on our beaches? Cigarette butts!
Vampire Diaries cast members were also in attendance supporting this good cause and we spoke with Nina Dobrev and Claire Holt.
Nina talks about Vampire Diaries and the Kiss and Claire shares her support for the IS Foundation.
Artist Erik Wahl created this painting of Ian – he really captured his essence.
