Ok, I appear to have the link working now with the Spring Greetings, thanks for letting me know. I liked this Visit Site as it had all sorts of links to information so it was more than just a notification site.

People around the world are becoming increasingly more aware of this project.
They are also aware that we all must share in responsibilities in helping to save Earth.

Ty, Dandelion.

Thanks Sheryl. Have picked out a DVD to watch on our rechargeable portable player during that time. Every hour of every day should be Earth Hour.

I've had my calendar marked for some time now.

Creator has his calendar marked also.

We're going to be going over the issues of Earth.

Creator is stubborn. He'll let us destroy this beautiful
planet if that's what we're intent on doing. He can
always bring it back. lol

Our CEO's ears are open to us.

I had to actually look it up to see when we were supposed to do this. It hasn't gotten any attention this year. People need to be reminded every year. I've heard nothing about it in the media this year.

All sorts of information about this, the date, time, and activities are on this Visit Site Veronica. Check it out, the site also has a lot of other valuable information beyond the Earth Hour on how to go GREEN.

Not sure your exact situation Lydia, but perhaps you could explain what is taking place and why, or show them the link I have offered which gives lots of valuable information. Who knows, maybe those who live with you will want to join in. People can't partake in something they don't know of.

Masha S. sent me a beautiful Earth Hour ecard earlier today, but I did not know the significance of the card. I liked it so much that I sent the card to everyone without knowing its significance.

Then, Alice D. sent me a message explaining the significance of the ecard along with the time for the ceremonial hour!

Now, I AM READY TO CELEBRATE!!! Have a very nice evening appreciating the gifts this planet has provided for us and for all its species for thousands and thousands of years!!!
