Earth Hour Blue - New Crowdfunding and Crowdsourcing Platform

Earth Hour Blue is a new revolutionary crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for the planet. This all-new digital platform was launched this year to capture the power of the crowd and engage people around the world beyond the lights out event. The crowdfunding section of the platform allows participants to financially support and deliver positive, tangible changes to the environment and communities all over the world. The Earth Hour Blue platform enables people to add their voice to some of the biggest environmental campaigns across the world.

You can back a project or add your voice to a campaign. Amazing projects are happening all over the world right now, and every dollar makes a difference. There are a number of projects to chose from so you can re-­‐build communities, help endangered wildlife or champion sustainable practices for villages.

The projects are only live for 60 days so we’re encouraging you to do it now. Crowdfunding gives people the opportunity to raise funds from the community for their projects. Earth Hour supports and gives a voice to pro-­‐planet projects and campaigns. Earth Hour Blue is an even greater opportunity for you to contribute to making real change and tangible impact among your communities, customers, staff, cities, states, countries and collectively, the world. Money raised goes to support projects and deliver tangible environmental outcomes on the ground.

Earth Hour Blue is all about the collective effort of individuals around the world getting together to help fund or add their voice to support on-­‐the-­‐ground environmental and social projects that deliver real outcomes. We need your help to make this change.

To support a project, simply visit www.earthhour.org/crowdfunding and donate to a project that is closest to your heart.
