Haven’t we all dreamed of hugging Ian Somerhalder? Well, if you haven’t I sure have –  and now anybody can with this fun new app created by the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

Sold on iTunes, the Hug-o-matic application allows you to paste your face onto a body that’s hugging or posing with Somerhalder. It’s your own virtual eHug with “The Vampire Diaries” star.

Powered by ISF, now you can be close with Somerhalder and become a part of the ISF family. You can choose from a variety of different hugs and personalize them to your liking.

Somerhalder seems to be enjoying the app himself as he tweeted, “Playing on IS Foundation new App!Come give me a hug!Really;) if you can buy this App! Makes a great gift for a friend.http://t.co/Tv7GeNUU. Please RT;) ISF family retweet like crazy. Let’s make some seriously amazing change!”

All proceeds support ISF, which focuses on empowering, educating and collaborating with people and projects to impact the planet and its creatures.

Now you can brag to your friends and family that you got a hug from the ever-so-handsome and kind Somerhalder!
