The rare littoral rainforests of southeast Madagascar are disappearing at an alarming rate. I'm going to be working with a charitable organization, Azafady, to help prevent this. 

Azafady is an award-winning UK-based charity that has been working in Madagascar for the last 12 years on various projects. Projects Azafady coordinate range from constructing houses and wells, to teaching English, to educating locals about conservation and sustainability.

I will working on the Environmental project, doing everything from replanting palm trees to surveying tracts of rainforest for lemurs. This information helps Azafady work with other NGO's and the local government to create conservation programmes.  

I am trying to raise $900 - approximately the cost for a 2 week volunteer period. Donors have the chance to receive 'gifts' for various levels of donations.

  • $1-20 = A postcard, send to you, letting you know what I’m up to that week.
  • $21-40 = A postcard, and a personalized photograph. You specify the category (wildlife, landscape, cultural, etc) and I will create an amazing image for you, with the words 'This picture was sponsored by: Donor Name' which will send to you privately.
  • $41-70 = A postcard, personalized photograph, and a 'thank-you' video, where I personally thank you for your donation while I'm doing something interesting (hiking through the rainforests, singing a song you choose at a karaoke night, hanging with local kids, etc).
  • $71-99= A postcard, personalized photograph, 'thank-you' video and I will film myself as I eat or drink a local delicacy of your choice. This includes insects, spicy foods, horrible combinations of liquor, etc. I reserve the right to deny eating anything that creates an ethical dilemma (ex: dog meat) or that will cause me physical harm (beyond a hangover).
  • $100+= A postcard, personalized photo, a 'thank-you' video, video of me eating/drinking a local delicacy, and a hand-made gift from an artist in Madagascar, which I will bring/send home for you.

All of the above are open for discussion and alteration. I will be sending these between January and May, 2014, as long as my equipment isn’t stolen or lost. Every effort will be made to create a fantastic memento for you to celebrate your generosity.
