Erin's Borneo Birthday Plea

Project by Erin Hamilton

Get Erin to Borneo where she can work towards saving the rain forest and improve local lives, opportunities and communities.

We did it!

On 22nd Jul 2018 we successfully raised £355 of £250 target with 15 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

My original target is what I (Erin) hope a birthday wish can help me raise and simply takes care of this month's payment. My stretch target would give me a significant step towards the total I need to raise and it would be incredible if I could start making headway towards this, at least. 

Do you want to help say "Happy 15th Birthday" to Erin in a truly rewarding way? Or do you just fancy being a great big, charitable hunk of humanity? Then here's how you can...

In August 2019, Erin will be travelling to Borneo with Camps international, an International Charity who are global leaders in ethical and sustainable school expeditions and offer life enhancing school expeditions across Africa, Asia and South America.

Every school expedition is a real and authentic cultural experience for every student. The expeditions help to challenge the students' view of the world, understand the day to day challenges rural communities face, help work on projects which transform communities and help them overcome significant issues they face including access to clean water, education and housing. They also increase student’s self-worth and appreciate the impact just one person can have on the world.

Erin has A LOT of work to do to try and fund raise the thousands of pounds needed for this trip (the bulk of which goes towards the charitable work and funds) as well as for the equipment, immunisations and so on that she will need. She makes a simple request. Instead of buying her a birthday card, let her know you send her your love and best wishes by making a donation to this Crowdfunder and sending a message with it. Every pound donated will make a difference! And, although it is her birthday request, Erin is offering rewards to all donators. If you have a specific request for a reward, based on those already on offer, please feel free to get in touch with us direct to discuss this and come to an agreed donation.

This Crowdfunder is set to run into July to allow it to reach as many people as possible whilst not stretching too far from the big day. Obviously, her birthday aside, this really is a fantastic project that she is being a part of and we welcome donations from those of you who are keen to share in it - check out the rewards for more details.
