I just received an e-mail from the organizers for Earth Hour for 2011 when I joined their site and made my lantern as a show of support. Here it is.

Hello arlene,

Thanks for making a lantern and showing your support for Earth Hour. Check out your lantern at http://www.earthhour.org/content/lanterns/56028/lantern.jpg. You can save it to your desktop (right-click the image and choose ‘save image as’).

If you haven’t already done so, tell all your friends on Facebook, Twitter and My Space – why not add your lantern to your profile.

I’ve been blogging about this the past two years. It actually started in 2007  in Sydney, Australia and other nations followed in 2008. Earth hour is held every last Saturday of March annually and is organized by World Wide Fund For Nature. The idea is to turn off non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour “to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.
