“True Blood” star Stephen Moyer may play a vampire on TV, but in real life he has something new to sink his fangs into: charity.

The British actor has teamed up with the charity organizations Facing the World and Facing the Atlantic, which help to raise funds to provide surgeries for children with facial disfigurement. Facing the Atlantic is currently sponsoring the Atlantic Woodvale race, as James Cash and actor Bertie Portal attempt to row a two-man boat from the Canary Islands to Barbados. Portal has been a close friend of Moyer’s for years, and served as his best man at his marriage to “True Blood” co-star Anna Paquin.

Moyer is taking a different (and much less dangerous) approach to raising money for the charity. In addition to urging users on his fansites and to donate, Moyer plans on auctioning off a collection of items, the proceeds of which will go directly to Facing the World. Moyer has a number of signed photos up for auction, the first of which sold for $830 after receiving over 50 bids!

The auctions will run through the end of this year, and the row will happen on December 4th, 2011. Luckily, those two will be far enough south that it won’t be too cold. You can find out more and donate at the Facing the Atlantic website, or check out the entries on Moyer’s fansite for details.

See? Vampires aren’t all bad, now are they?

    We, who are the admins of the sites, and, are thrilled to be able to support such a worthy charity for our 2011 Fundraiser. Helping children is a cause we can certainly easily embrace.

    What James and Bertie are doing is inspirational, to say the least, and the help it will give to the children is so worth the effort.

    We hope that with Stephen Moyer’s support and also along the the help of the other fan sites that are participating, such as, we will generate lots of giving.
