I entered the DeforestAction: Project Borneo 3D contest to have a chance to spend 100 days in Borneo to be part of a 3D Action Movie - helping to save endangered rainforest and orangutans, create awareness about deforestation, and provide a sustainable livelihood for the local community. The project is led by acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach - you can learn more about the approach in Willie's TED Talk.
I am in the Top 50 Applicants right now, still in the running towards becoming one of the ten Action Agents that will be going to Borneo! Everyone, however, was given the chance to go to Borneo! Will you support my passion for DeforestAction? If we can recruit 500 supporters and raise $5,000 through our personal networks, all of the passionate individuals that participated in this competition will have the chance to visit Borneo to be part of the project even if we don't become one of the ten Action Agents.

You can donate below to sponsor land to be redeveloped as part of this project, and join my network of supporters through a quick web site signup. For $20 you can protect 10 square meters of land in Borneo for 99 years, and your name will be listed on a map on this land! Your money will be used to protect virgin forests, grow back forests in Borneo, and house orphaned oranguatans. You'll receive a certificate with the coordinates of the land you're preserving.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
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.
