cd to folder with spaces - in a script



How can I cd into a dir, when it contains spaces, and I need to use it in a script?

the directory:
/home/user/this is a folder/something

normally I would use:
cd /home/user/this\ is\ a\ folder/something/

but in a script I cant just add the "\"
like:

find . -type d | while read FOLDER; do cd $FOLDER; done
$ No such file or directory

the problem is, that there would be more "special chars" then spaces, "sed" them all? :D

Thank you
