My I Will If You Will Challenge for Earth Hour 2012

Earth Hour 2012 I Will If You Will

What's your I WIll If You Will challenge for Earth Hour? As for me, I'm gonna do a bungee jump if more than 1.8 billion people around the world will switch off their lights this coming Earth Hour. I'm scared as heck to do it but I'll definitely try. Last year's Earth Hour witnessed 1.8 billion people take a stand against climate change and commit to sustainable energy and environmentally-friendly practices. You can do your own I Will If You Will dare and post it in your social media accounts and blogs. Get the template and know more about the campaign in Earth Hour Philippines' official website. I'm looking forward to seeing your dares. Let's do more than two billion in this year's Earth Hour!

Earth Hour 2012: This serves as your invitation!

Earth Hour 2012 I Will If You Will WWF Philippines When Where Why How

Earth Hour 2012 is just around the corner. In line with this, I am inviting ALL OF YOU to switch off your lights this coming 31 March 2012, 8:30-9:30 PM. There will be THREE main events for this year's Earth Hour here in the Philippines. The said events will be held in three major cities, one from each major island group. In Luzon, it will be held in the Ayala Triangle area of Makati City. In Visayas, Fort San Pedro in Cebu City will serve as the hot spot. In Mindanao, Davao City will lead the dark side fun in the switch-off event to be held in SM City Davao. All the three events will start at the same time and have the same schedules! It's so cool right?

Your city or town might also have its own event so you can come too if you live faraway from the said venues. Or simply just switch-off your non-essential lights and gadgets! To correct some misconceptions about Earth Hour, it's actually not just about switching off your lights for one hour. It's not the world's biggest voluntary environmental event for nothing. Earth Hour symbolizes our commitment to help save the planet. Having said that, it's what we do after Earth Hour that counts. It's about going beyond the hour. It's about the changes you'll make in your everyday life that will matter. If we all make changes for the benefit of the planet, collectively that's something massive. This year's Earth Hour also comes with a cool 'I Will If You Will' campaign which aims to incorporate even more fun and interactivity to the yearly event. For now, mark your calendars and prepare to switch off your lights on March 31st. Start thinking about your personal commitments in helping save our only home in space too.
