TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 28, 2014) - Now in its eighth year, Earth Hour aims to engage hundreds of millions of people to support different environmental priorities across the planet. To promote adoption of clean solar energy, PURE Energies is partnering with Mike Holmes to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The PURE Energies #momentofdarkness initiative invites you to take action against climate change by learning more about solar power.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH #MOMENTOFDARKNESS 2014
- This Saturday, March 29, switch off your lights between 8:30-9:30pm. This simple act makes a difference.
- Now, visit our special #momentofdarkness web page and help raise money for WWF.
- If 5,000 people learn more about going solar, DIY expert and TV personality Mike Holmes will donate $5,000 to the WWF.
"Earth Hour has always been more than just about lights off, it's about people from all walks of life coming together throughout the year to show what they can do to protect the planet," says Andy Ridley, CEO and co-founder of Earth Hour from the movement's home in Singapore. "What makes Earth Hour different is that it empowers people to take charge and to use their power to make a difference. The movement inspires a mixture of collective and individual action, so anyone can do their part."
