I am proud to be associated with this project. I was one of the first group of investors to visit some of the farms in Bolivia and it reinforced my feeling that this is a worthwhile investment. The project is addressing a multitude of important issues, which impact both locally in Bolivia, but also on all of us on this shared planet. So much has been achieved already, it is vital that it receives the support needed to ensure its longevity and future security, to maximise the positive impact on the local farmers and the rainforest for the future of us all

Thank you for your good work on this very critical project. With most disasters in the world, there's always some chance of full or partial recovery. With deforestation and the associated species loss and accelerated climate change, it's permanent. So your work is really important!

ArBolivia's splendid social and environmental aims, the commitment of its members, and leaders, and the evidence that the project is already working, helping local communities, pointing the way to a sustainable future, gives this investment great appeal. I love also that use of Crowdfunder allows me to gift my perks to family

Great to see the original forestry project, which offered a true partnership with local communities in Bolivia, being extended to incorporate agricultural initiatives. I am delighted to give this exciting extension my support.

I, too, have been a supporter of this great project since its inception and I take my hat off to David and the team for their courage and hard work in making it happen. The livelihood of many poor and industrious people depends on our support.

A truly inspiring project which, with our support, will show the World there is a better way than clear-felling virgin rainforest, until there is none left. Sustainability is ultimately essential for everyone: the sooner we start, the better the outcome. We must not allow this one to fail.

After seeing ArBolivia's work at first hand we have the utmost confidence that every penny of our money is being spent by dedicated and efficient personnel in a way that promotes truly healthy re-forestation and good agricultural practice with huge benefit to the lives of the communities. It's a great feeling to have.

An admirable project to support. It might take some time but I have great faith that it will benefit those who need it most - the farmers and the environment

Tom.Dorothy: 'Heart-warming and hands-on with huge potential; this project targets vulnerable communities who desperately want it to succeed. Their future is our future, rainforests matter to us all.'

I'm a development professional and I love this project - financial, social and environmental returns at the same time as giving hope and dignity to farmers.

Linking local empowerment and sustainability with global measures to combat climate change - I'm very pleased to support this project; and the bonus is an ethical personal investment .

Tonycox 10th October 2015

I have been a supporter of this great project since it started, and last year visited some of the plantations in Bolivia. The trees are growing, farmers and support workers are enthusiastic, but it will take time before there is a positive cash-flow, so I hope lots of people will contribute and help keep it going.

A great project! It ticks all the right boxes, whether social, financial, environmental or whatever. Very worthy of support, either as a personal feel-good or as a straightforward investment! Best wishes -- and good luck with the funding.
