About Borneo 2017 - Josie Handscomb

I feel very privileged to have this opportunity to travel to Borneo in August 2017, spending a month living in, and helping to regenerate the rain forest. Additionally, I shall be participating in numerous community projects including digging and building wells for water supplies, building schools and helping to rehabilitate orphaned orangutans. We shall also be helping to raise awareness of how littering can damage our environment. I shall be working with the local people to help protect and develop their environment. Our planet and it's future is of great concern and we as a generation need to take our responsibility seriously. I know that this experience will give me insight as to how, as an adult, I can continue to impact on our planets future as an environmental scientist. Clearly, this comes at a financial cost and I am already fundraising through busking, babysitting and carrying out odd jobs. I have further plans to hold boot fairs, garage sales, cake sales, breakfast fry ups, sponsored events, bag backing at supermarkets and have already obtained support from my scout group. The total amount I need to raise is £4, 170.00 and I would be grateful for any donations you can make. I am also running a blog through out the expedition and fundraising that you can see at: Thank you, Josie

"Such an easy way to raise money for charity, with no effort. Easy to use website and help available if needed. Huge choice of charities, the problem as ever is who to support as each and everyone is worthy!"

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

David - easyfundraising user

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
