                                      The least I can do is speak out for those 
                                          who can not speak for themselves"

DeforestAction: Project Borneo 3D will potentially have me living in the Jungles of Borneo for 100 days being part of a 3D Block Buster Movie - helping to rescue and rehabilitate orang-utans, replant rainforests, provide a sustainable livelihood for the local community and help spread the word about the situation in Borneo. 

The project is led by acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach - you can watch Willie's inspiring TED Talk here.

Lets help our our primate brothers and sisters and help give them some home back! This is some of the most affordable realestate around, at only $10 for a lush 5sq meters! 

If you can just take a look on the floor of your car, under your couch cushions or in telephone boxes- you'll find some coins there that nobody is using... and just pop them into the Borneo bank below with either pay pal or credit card.

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 $4,616 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)
