START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good
Dec 10, 2009

This weekend, 12-13 December, we are giving up electricity, to experience life without all the lights, gadgets, excesses and energy wasting - and we'd like you to join in too, or let friends know about it. 

You must know some adventurous people who are prepared to take action for a good cause and to feel good themselves? It is short notice - but please nip over to this website of mine, have a quick look, and if you like it, try it. In your own house, just turn the power off and enjoy a simpler 48 hours, do good, feel good. 
For us, at 59 degrees north, it is winter, electricity provides all our heating, lighting, cooking and all the computers etc - but a couple of days talking with real friends, playing games, sawing wood, reading and making tea over an open fire - is going to be bliss! Have a look, please:
Over 100 people around the world have signed up to join us, either on our Facebook page or by emailing and pledging to do it. I hope to hear from you and share the adventure.
Starts tomorrow, Friday 11 Dec at 11pm, your time.
Visibility: Everyone
