Yes For Earth Hour


With only a kerosene lamp and some candles inside our house, we joined people all over the world for the Earth Hour last night. My nieces were quite curious about it and we tried to explain to them the importance of the event and as well as that of the global warming. As I watched the Earth Hour's coverage on TV, I felt really glad that Philippines actively participated in the event. There is hope in addressing global warming problems.

I hope the movement will not stop after Earth Hour. We can help in any little way we can. All of us.

Update:
According to the Earth Hour website, the Philippines topped the most number of participants in the event with 650 communities switching off their lights for the Earth Hour. Go Pinoy!

We also participated. My 5-yr old enjoyed it because it was a nice opportunity for family bonding.

Go Philippines Go! My country, Sweden is a very small country, though very aware of the environment problems, yet we didn't have that much participating as one could wish. Maybe next year.

I've added you to the link love in my post :-)
