15 years ago I lived in Borneo. That was a life changing experience and two of the best years ever. It was Charlie's documentary that brought the rain-forest alive again for me. One of the best documentaries I've seen in ages. Go Charlie - we need more films to help us feel connected with nature again and inspired to do something to make a difference.
I agree with all previous comments. This makes sense! Best Nat
I was inspired by the amazing and moving series Charlie made, and found out about the project through his website. We need a lot more of these projects throught the rainforest, not just the Peru region, but this is a fantastic start and I feel very grateful to all the people who are making it a successful venture. I've always said that the well being of this planet lies not in governments, laws or protesting but in people taking control and constructive action at a grass roots level - and you are the perfect example of that theory in practice. In another life it would have been a dream come true to have volunteered my time for you but I'm severely disabled, so I hope my deep gratitude and appreciation for your hard work and huge hearts will be enough. Bless everyone who is involved and may it go from strength to strength!
This is such a BRILLIANT project. If we can just stop the 1st World lusting after prime beef, gold and mahogany too, then there is hope. Thank you too, to Charlie Hamilton James for the inspiring, beautiful, terribly thought provoking "I Bought a Ranforest" on BBC2. Perhaps the best documentary I have seen, it's lessons will stay with me for ever and I am determined to keep spreading the word.
Still loving all this amazing support for our project, thank you everyone!
Great project. Visited the Peruvian Amazon last year. Truly an amazing place and it is essential we support local people to look after it.
Brilliant project and would love to conitue to support so am spreading the word as think most people are generally unaware of the implacations of their everyday lives and habits on such an important part of the world.
Thank you so much for all your support madderlou, louise.cannon.7, 500.Internal.Server.Error, astrid.eichhorn, and greenombe!
I have been totally overwhelmed to watch the series with Charlie and glad that I saw it as it brought me here. I wish I could do more to help! Keep up the good work not only for yourselves but the whole planet! Not sure if Charlie sees this but thank you, we can tell it isn't easy but keep up the work if you can. And there is support there but none of us are brave enough, unlike yourself, so just ask. I am behind you!! Best wishes to you and everyone in the Amazon and any where green!
Great project, hopefully will work out as planned! We need more such initiatives! Found this project after watching the BBC documentary, which was the best documentary we've ever seen on BBC!
Thankyou for the opportunity to contribute
This is such an important and worthwhile cause. The programme "I bought a Rainforest" was so inspirational. I have a love of nature, the environment and see the absolute importance to save it. I am glad that there are ways that us people, who cannot buy a part of a rainforest can help to save it.
I was really moved and inspired by the TV show, thank you Charlie for all your efforts and bringing this massive issue to everyone's minds again. I truly believe that if everyone does their bit together we can make a difference.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated over the last few days, we are absolutely blown away by the generosity and support of all of you. Together we CAN make a difference!
Well Charlie, you were concerned that your meager efforts would not make a difference, how wrong you were! How wonderful to be able to share your journey of enlightenment with you - thank you. And thanks to you showing us how, we can now do something to help the land and the people.
Thanks for giving me the kick up the backside Charlie to donate. Your programme was inspiring and depressing in equal measure, but it is good to see that we can make a difference. I am proud to have given some money to this worthwhile cause and will encourage others to do so. We all have to do more.
Inspired by Charlie's project and so pleased to have been directed to a place where something as easy as donating a bit of money can have a positive impact. Well done to all involved, and thank you
Absolutely brilliant that the goal has been reached , helps restore faith in mankind
Delighted you have reached your target, and hope that more will be added in the next 22 days. When all seems hopeless and overwhelming, as Charlie felt at times with his project, it's important to remember just to start - to do what you can. 301 people have managed to join together to make a difference to many lives and our global environment. It's taught me that my donation, combined with others, can create a powerful force to change things for the better, to do our bit.
