#Global Selfie Earth Day

21 Apr

I subscribe to NASA’s emails and I received one the other day that I’d like to share.  Tomorrow, they want everyone to take a selfie.

Are you up for it?  If you don’t do Twitter, Facebook, etc., post it to your blog then leave a link here in the comments and I’ll come check you out.

Here’s their blurb:

NASA invites you — and everyone else on the planet — to take part in a worldwide celebration of Earth Day this year with the agency’s #GlobalSelfie event.

The year 2014 is a big one for NASA Earth science. Five NASA missions designed to gather critical data about our home planet are launching to space this year. NASA is marking this big year for Earth science with a campaign called Earth Right Now, and as part of this campaign the agency is asking for your help this Earth Day, April 22.

While NASA satellites constantly look at Earth from space, on Earth Day we’re asking you to step outside and take a picture of yourself wherever you are on Earth. Then post it to social media using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie.

    I dunno. Are you SURE this isn’t so the NSA (another US government agency) can spy on you? *giggles*

    I’ll have to try to remember to do that. It sounds like fun 🙂

    my kids and I pick up garbage in the park across the street from us every Earth Day — so we will definitely be taking some pictures. I cannot believe how much garbage we collect each year – it’s our little town fairgrounds so it sees a lot of foot traffic. and dog walkers.
    I wish I could DNA print each piece of garbage that is just thrown on the ground and go smack the one responsible. Until then, have gloves and pick it up.

    I’m in and I’ll reblog it. Why not have selfies done for a really good reason for a change? 😉

    You gotta be kidding. What idiot thought this up? Can you imagine the energy that will be wasted?

    Sorry I missed this, although you would never get a pic of me anyway. But I might have tried to doctor it up a bit if I had been on top of my reading.

    A bit upset that I missed this. !!!!!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
