Shepard Fairey lends a hand to Earth Hour 2009… Turn out your lights!

Via on Feb 9, 2009

He might be under the spotlight for crafting the ubiquitous Obama “HOPE” print and his subversive methods, but Shepard Fairey is also lending his designs to help turn out the lights for Earth Hour 2009. Another reason to dismiss the haters who have lately been attacking his work. 

As their website says:

What began as a campaign to get Sydneysiders to turn their lights off, has grown to become one of the world’s biggest climate change initiatives. In 2009, at 8.30pm on March 28, people around the world will turn their lights off for one hour – Earth Hour. We’re aiming to reach one billion people, more than 1000 cities, all joining together in a global effort to show that its possible to take action on global warming.

So, check out the site, scope the statistics, and get involved. Also, check out this video:
