Our friend Joyce Bosc of Boscobel Marketing Communications, Inc. forwarded the information below. We’re participating – we hope you will too!


This is both important and time critical. Please take a minute today to go to the Power IT Down Day Web site and sign up today!

Power IT Down Day is the grassroots effort of a few companies and thousands of people like you and me who are dedicated to making a difference through one simple action — turning off our computers and printers at the end of the work day on Thursday, August 27.

It’s so easy to help. All we are asking is that you commit to saving energy on Thursday, August 27 by shutting down your computer and printer at the end of the work day. That’s it!

To demonstrate the cost-savings of the effort, Citrix, HP, Microsoft and Intel will donate a minimum of $20,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit that helps seriously wounded soldiers returning from war and their families. It’s an amazing charity, and they really need our help.

After you sign up this weekend, I am asking you to also send this to 10 people you know and ask them to sign up next week! Please engage all your networks!

Every person makes a difference.

Thank you for your help!

Power IT Down Day — please pass it on!
