Eloise Stephenson's Action Hub

To be honest, I can't pinpoint that time in my life that I became so passionate about animals and making a difference. I was never really surrounded or inundated with wildlife, as I lived in Saudi Arabia for more than half my life. I was never forced or pushed in the direction of conservation. I have not been raised in a family, or with friends that have shared this huge WANT to do exactly what I want to do. I believe that what I want to do, how I feel about the world around me, is instincutal. It is something that I feel down to my very core. There is nothing else I want to do with my life than make a difference in the natural world.

Whether you share this passion with me or not, each and everyone of us has SOMETHING that we enjoy, that we are good at, that gives us a sense of belonging. That something is our own island in the sea of everyday living. For me, I am one step closer to making my island, my dreams, aspirations, and hopes into reality. 

Everybody IS different, and regardless of what your passion is, I hope you can see that this is mine. Please take a few minutes to help me step closer to where I want to be. You have the power to make a difference, not only to my entire life, but to this incredibly worthy cause. Whether you chose to make a donation or not, join my hub or not, thank you at least for hearing me out.

How You Can Help!

You can help by joining my DeforestAction Network and by donating to support the project! As an applicant to the 3D Movie project, I have a special opportunity: I need to recruit 500 supporters and help raise $5,000 to earn an opportunity to visit Borneo and be part of the DeforestAction project in person! You can keep track of my progress below:

What is DeforestAction?

Youth across the planet have united to create DeforestAction - a global collaborative project to halt the destruction of rainforests, create a permanent home for orang-utans, and save the planet. From schools, homes and communities across the world, this project is one of the most important of our time, driven by youth for the future of the world.

The forests of the world are disappearing fast. If we don't do something soon, they will all be destroyed, taking away the habitat of orangutans and other wildlife. In Indonesia alone, a forest the size of 300 football fields is being cut down every hour - to make way for palm oil plantations.

 I've helped raise $400 of my $5,000 goal!

Your money will support the reforestation and protection of a new area of degraded rainforest Willie Smits has secured from the Bupati of Sintang, West Kalimantan for DeforestAction. The funding will be used to secure and sustain the land in partnership with the local community for 99 years, the length of the land use agreement.

Ten dollars ($10)
Twenty dollars ($20)
Fifty dollars ($50)
One hundred dollars ($100)
