This year, during our one hour black-out, Canadians are asked to take a moment to reflect on ways they can fight against climate change. By reducing greenhouse gases like nitrous oxide and methane, this will significantly make a difference in the earth's temperature. Have you wondered why Spring has taken so long to get here? Why the snow still flies? Climate change is that reason.
By turning off your lights for only one hour on Saturday, March 29, you are choosing a future where climate change is no longer a threat. It's a simple way to show your support and be a part of the solution.
Are you ready to join Earth Hour?
If you're looking for ideas on how to participate, available resources from Salvation Army Ministry Resources can be found here and don't forget Twitter! Each hour on Saturday, March 29th beginning from 9am until the end of Earth Hour, we will be tweeting out ideas for that specific time of the day. Check us out on Twitter @saworldmissions.
We appreciate your support! Earth Hour is extremely important and has been embraced by The Salvation Army for many years. At Territorial Headquarters, our lights were turned off for the full hour from 8:30-9:30 on Saturday evening and we encouraged all Salvation Army buildings and Corps to turn off theirs.
It is a blessing that your daughter has knowledge in Earth Hour and really feels it's importance to conserve as much as we can.
Blessings to you!
