On Wednesday, we shared Ian Somerhalder’s goal to raise money for his Ian Somerhalder Foundation and win the Mozilla Firefox Challenge. Well, he did it!

Somerhalder expressed his dire hopes of winning $50,000 from Mozilla and repeatedly campaigned on Twitter. His hard work paid off and now ISF benefits greatly.

“THANK-YOU to all those who donated & helped us win the Mozilla Firefox Challenge. We truly have the best supporters in the world!! X,” ISF tweeted. [sic]

“The Vampire Diaries” star even offered the chance for one lucky donor to win his personal copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Mozilla will dish out $100,000 for causes that raised the most. Jimmy Kimmel came in a close second for supporting Comfort the Children and third place goes to Bat World Sanctuary.

Somerhalder jokingly tweeted, referencing the third place winner, “I lovvvve bats but they are NOT beating ISF for this Fire Fox challenge! Pls help! Donate!We have an amazing contest,I’m gonna do something,” [sic]

Over $1 million was raised throughout the entire challenge.

Congrats to Somerhalder and all those that raised money for important causes!

    At one point ISF was being beaten by a Yiddish Goat Farm, but they rallied and won it in, literally, the last seconds. So glad ISF won.
