Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the newest voice shedding light on the cause is a familiar one. "The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev has partnered with Puma's Project Pink to help raise funds for the breast cancer charity of your choosing. That's right. Through October 7, you can vote for which organization will receive funds raised through Project Pink. It's one component of the charity puzzle that drew Nina in.

"What's cool about [Project Pink] is that it empowers people. It empowers women. It empowers girls to actually do something, and it puts the money in their hands, and they decide where it goes," Nina told us while in New York City to support the campaign. "They choose the organization that gets all the money, and they have a voice. And that's pretty powerful."
