On Friday Magazine from the United Arab Emirates:

“Earth Hour co-founder Andy Ri­d­ley in­sists he’s an av­er­age guy. Unusual for a man who will get mil­lions of peo­ple all over the world to turn off their lights to­mor­row night. The rea­son is this: Andy feels that de­spite the mas­sive im­pact of the Earth Hour move­ment, the event is re­ally about or­di­nary in­di­vid­u­als do­ing or­di­nary things to make an ex­tra­or­di­nary im­pact on the world.”   Read more

In the Daily Dispatch from South Africa:

“LIGHTS will go off in some 7 000 cities around the world for this week­end’s Earth Hour event, which will aim to raise hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars for en­vi­ron­men­tal projects world­wide, or­gan­is­ers said yes­ter­day. Or­gan­is­ers WWF have part­nered with pay­ments gi­ant PayPal to al­low donors to con­trib­ute for spe­cific projects in coun­tries from Rus­sia and In­dia to Canada and In­done­sia, us­ing Asian fundrais­ing site Crow­do­nomic.”   Read more
