Earth Hour 2010
24 March 2010
In alignment with our Foundation’s “green” initiatives, I feel it is important to relay this information about the upcoming “Earth Hour 2010,” to take place on March 27, 2010 (Saturday), during which people all over the world will be turning off their lights for one hour beginning at precisely 8:30 p.m. (in their respective time zones). The rippling wave of darkness that will wash over the globe spanning a 24-hour period of “one hour of no lights” will be a dazzling spectacle to behold. Last year almost one billion people participated. This year could easily become the most heavily participated event in world history. To think: You and I could be a part of it.
Let us join together and send this message throughout the world and throughout the entire Cosmos—about conserving our natural resources, going “green,” developing freer and cleaner energy supplies... and (let us not forget) about this being a colossal event to weave all humanity more and more deeply together as one Family in the heart of God.
With my love and eternal blessing,
Louix Dor Dempriey
P.S. Below are a few more facts:
Mission, History & Earth Hour 2010
On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations, and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. In places where people are already feeling the impacts of climate change, Earth Hour sends a clear message that we care about this issue and want to turn the lights out on dirty air, dangerous dependency on oil, and costly climate change impacts, and make the switch to cleaner air, and a strong economic future.
Participation is easy. Simply turn off your lights on March 27th at 8:30 p.m., local time, for one hour. That is all you need to do. Oh, and it would also be a great help if you would “spread the word.” Tell your friends and co-workers, and feel free to forward this e-mail to whomever you wish.
Remember To Set Your Clock
