Earth Hour

What will you be doing during Earth Hour this year? 

My daughter and I will turn off everyhting and play a game by candle light. It is the first time in a number of years that we have actually been home during Earth Hour so I thought it would be fun to support the cause. 

Earth Hour started off as a ligths off event in Sydney Australia in 2007. Since then over 7000 cities and towns worldwide take part in this event from 8:30 - 9:30pm in their respective time zones. The idea behind it is to turn as many of your lights off for 1 hour as a symbol of your commitment to the planet. Since it's beginning Earth Hour has become so much more thna just turning off your lights to learn more about the cause and how you can participate, vist their website at the following link:
