Anyone giving up reading for an hour?
EARTH HOUR 2011
Saturday, March 26th, at 8.30 PM, Pacific
Are you turning off your lights for 60 minutes?
Earth Hour was founded in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, when 2.2 million individuals and 2,000+ businesses turned their lights off for one hour. Last year was the most supported yet: 128 countries participated. Sydney Harbor Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Coliseum all stood in darkness.
Add to the symbol of hope for our planet! Set aside your book, and turn out the lights for 60 minutes on Saturday!
