He plays Klaus Mikaelson in The CW's "The Originals," now Joseph Morgan is using his fame to encourage others to "Be The Change You Want To See" and donate to his charity to help fund clean water projects.

"We want to thank all of you for your support and love! Please continue to donate," said Morgan and his wife Persia White in their message.

"We've exceeded our original goal, and have moved it up. With this amount we'll be able to fund two water projects and change an entire community!"

Currently, Morgan and White have managed to raise $19,000 of the $20,000 goal for the charity. The cause is truly remarkable and like Ian Somerhalder of "The Vampire Diaries," Morgan has used his fame for the greater good in many cases.

This is yet another example of positivity being shown from one celebrity.

"In celebration of the holidays we're asking our family & friends, including all Original, Girlfriend, and Vampire lovers to invest in our campaign that will fund a water project in Ethiopia," said Morgan and White.

"100% of every dollar we raise will go toward project costs. And when our project is finished (in about 21 months), Charity Water will show us the exact community we helped! You'll be able to see pictures of the lives you've touched."

Fans have gotten the fund this far, now Morgan is asking them to finish off strong.
