Contest Results and Earth Hour WordPress Plugin

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Ariane C is the winner for her comment on the Earth Hour Canada – Vancouver Contest post. She may now choose between the Aus Pen from EcoSmartWorld Prize Pack or the Grand Prize from Grouse Mountain. The prize she does not choose will also be given away in a random draw.

Update: Ariane has accepted the Grand Prize so the Eco Smart prize pack has been awarded to Jen Huckdoll.

You can download the plugin and read more over on BraveNewCode’s website. Feel free to Digg it too! I’m looking forward to seeing how many WordPress users around the globe will be shutting down in solidarity in honor of this event.

    Earth Hour is really a good concept on how we could spend at least a few minutes of our time in remembering mother Eearth. people should be more aware and more caring of our environment now that we have Global Warming and Climate Change.
