Ian Somerhalder’s name has been thrown around to play Christian Grey in the movie version of the raunchy “Fifty Shades of Grey” by E.L. James. Wouldn’t you like to know his personal thoughts on the book? Well, now you can.

Somerhalder is giving anyone the chance to win his very own copy of “Fifty Shades,” along with a personal note tucked into his favorite section, but there’s a catch.

He is looking to raise money for his Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF) through CrowdRise. This particular challenge is presented by Mozilla, which is giving away $100,000 to causes that raise the most money through Jan. 10, 2013.

Somerhalder hopes to score a $50,000 donation from Mozilla. His foundation is such a great cause that benefits the environment and all the earth’s creatures in more ways than one. The actor is constantly working to improve ISF, and this is just another act to push his organization in the right direction.

So far, he has raised over $55,000 and is in first place on the leader board. Celebs like Sophia Bush, Ed Norton, Jimmy Kimmel and Kristen Bell are also participating.

“The Vampire Diaries” star’s event ends today at 11:59 p.m. EST. So, if you want a chance to help ISF and win the prize, be sure to enter ASAP.

“When you give to ISF, you give to generational change. Empower each of us to become the leaders this world needs to see,” Somerhalder says on CrowdRise.
