    Steve, Your absolute commitment to this cause is unquestionable and your contribution to the TIG community over the past month has been nothing short of outstanding. Congratulations on the research scholarship (hopefully that's an accurate description) and I wish you all the very best in this competition.

    Steve! We're sad to see you leave the YMCA but we know you've been working for this moment for the past 3 years. Go get 'em! What you're doing is so great.

    Thank you Rebecca, Ika, and Nakul! For people that are having trouble figuring out how to vote (you can vote up to 3 times!):

    1. First, login to TakingITGlobal: http://www.tigweb.org/members/login.html You can use an existent Facebook, Google, Yahoo, etc account to login, or you can sign up which takes a few seconds more.

    2. Once logged in, view my video (the page you're already on) and rate it underneath out of 5 stars!

    3. Last, and MOST important, please go to the Voting Page: http://gg.tigweb.org/tig/deforestaction/judge/ Select my clip with a checkmark, scroll to the bottom and hit "Cast Vote." You can repeat this two additional times for my video, or vote for others as you see fit! Currently, there are 193 submissions and my video is in the 17th row (or about 1/2 way into the gallery) in the 2nd column from the right.

    That's it! Thanks so much everybody. I really appreciate your support. Sorry for the slightly confusing system.

This is my video application to become one of ten project leaders for "Project Borneo 3d," a massive undertaking between Dutch conservationist Dr. Willie Smits, Orangutan Outreach, Virgo Productions, TakingITGlobal and other partners to bring awareness, and ultimately provide solutions to rampant deforestation in Borneo that is threatening unique wildlife, local communities and the global climate alike. The project takes place in the Sintang District of West Kalimantan, Indonesia, and includes large-scale sustainable economic development initiatives for the rural Dayak communities, tropical reforestation efforts on degraded land, and permanent sanctuary building for displaced orangutans.

Please find out more about this pressing issue at www.deforestACTION.com and www.redapes.org, or by watching Dr. Willie Smits' inspiring TED talk at: http://www.ted.com/talks/willie_smits_restores_a_rainforest.html

I'd be greatly honored to receive your vote on this video so that I may have the opportunity to work with the man that has long served as my single greatest role model. He is one of the few individuals truly doing what it takes to save whole species, ecosystems, and communities in Indonesia. The more votes my video receives, the greater my chances - so vote and spread far and wide to friends and family. Thanks everybody! {:(|)

Sincerely,
Steve less «
