Switch off your lights tonight for Earth Hour!

Posted on 28 July 2009 by EyeFred

Tonight is Earth Hour which means that millions (hopefully 1 billion) of people around the world will be switching off their lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm (local times).  The event’s organizers have done a fantastic job in spreading the word and getting people involved online.  Start off by visiting the official website and register so you can share your own videos, pictures, and blogs about the event.  There’s also a wide variety of download materials you can use to promote your participation in tonight’s Earth Hour 2009 event and get your family, friends, and co-workers involved! And of course, Earth Hour is on most major social networks, including Twitter and Facebook.

EyeTour is joining the global community in this effort, in hopes of reaching the established goal of 1 billion Earth Hour participants around the world.  Events such as this one help promote preservation and a healthier, cleaner environment in which natural wonders such as Puerto Rico’s Laguna Grande, Las Cabezas de San Juan, and El Yunque National Forest are safe from harm.

Join us tonight for an hour and give our planet a breather!

From the Earth Hour Facebook Group:

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one whole hour. Only a year later and this event had become a global sustainability movement with up to 100 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In 2009, at 8.30pm on March 28, we are asking people across the world to turn off their lights and join together in creating the vital conversation about the future of our precious planet. Earth Hour is a message of hope and a message of action. Everyone can make a difference.

It’s as simple as a flick of the switch. Join us for Earth Hour 2009.

Helping Rescued Dogs Find Their Way To A Loving Home

Posted on 18 July 2009 by EyeFred

Help Save A Sato bring happy, healthy, rescued dogs to loving homes on the mainland.

Save a Sato is a nonprofit foundation that rescues dogs from beaches, streets, and construction sites across the island of Puerto Rico. The organization gives them immediate medical attention, food and shelter, and lots of love. When they are ready, satos (as these rescued animals are commonly referred to on the island) are sent on nonstop American Airlines flights to cities in the continental U.S.to partner shelters (Boston, Hartford, Newark, etc.). From there, they are adopted into loving homes.

Save A Sato is in need of transport escorts to make this possible… Federal law prohibits our sending dogs without a corresponding traveler. If you are leaving Puerto Rico on an American Airlines flight, please consider being an escort. It’s easy and free!
