    • At the end of the statement, declare your support to Earth Hour by adding this line “I support Earth Hour. Please support it too.” and tagging WWF Philippines.
    • You may do this as frequent as you can.

    Mechanics for Twitter

    About Earth Hour
    Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative in 2007 and has since grown to be a 5251-city strong global movement, reaching 1.8 billion people in 135 countries across all seven continents.
    Earth Hour Philippines has led the global switch-off since 2009, ranking number one globally in terms of town and city participation for three consecutive years. A record-breaking 1554 Philippine cities and municipalities switched off in 2011, 1076 in 2010, 647 for 2009 and over 50 during the country’s inaugural Earth Hour switch-off in 2008.

    From 8:30pm to 9:30pm this coming 31 March, WWF-Philippines will again stage Earth Hour to inspire Filipinos to switch off their lights and dare their friends to save planet Earth.

    The I WILL IF YOU WILL Campaign
    The I WILL IF YOU WILL campaign empowers people to share a personal dare with the world by asking everyone what are you willing to do to save the planet?

    The concept of I WILL IF YOU WILL centers around providing a social contract between two parties – connecting one person, business or organization to a ‘promise’ and their friends, family, customers or members to a ‘challenge’ – uniting them behind the common goal of creating a positive environmental outcome.

    Says Earth Hour co-founder Andy Ridley, “I WILL IF YOU WILL gives every individual the opportunity to inspire their friends, colleagues and neighbors to take sustainability actions not just on the hour, but beyond the hour. The more people can inspire their networks to change the world we live in, the bigger our efforts will be.”

    WWF-Philippines encourages you to share your I WILL IF YOU WILL dare publicly through social media. Post it on Facebook, upload it on Youtube, tag your friends on Twitter! Friends can be invited to participate and accept each challenge using these popular social networks.

    The simple promise can range from recycling, to switching to energy-efficient light bulbs, turning off your mobile charger, or vowing to go paperless.
