Going Globally Green -- Update YOUR OMAG Account!

You did it Canada! We've been leading the way on helping to Green our Environment, One Act at a Time and the momemtum continues on...

As of May 1st, together we've registered 1,498,940 Acts of Green saving 87,340,224 KG of Greenhouse gasses. Based on the overwhelming success of the One Million Acts of Green initiative, OMAOG is going global with the continued support of Cisco (no, not the Thong Song guy -- the company) and GreenNexxus.

This will necessitate a change for those of you who've already registered your acts and are continuing to help this cause. You need to do one little thing -- transfer your account to the Global site from the Canadian one because as of Canada Day (July 1st, 2009) the Canadian site will no longer be active.

I'm proposing an challenge to you, which I will be doing myself. It's easy as 1,2,3!

1) Transfer my account to the new site
2) Register more acts that I've added since I last logged on
3) Get one more friend to sign up and register THEIR own Acts of Green

If even a small number of participants do this - we'll be at 1.5 Million Acts by the weekend!

Here's the text you would have recieved in your inbox...

The CBC/One Million Acts of Green program is expiring on July 1, 2009.

This isn’t the end though. On the contrary, we see it as just the beginning. Due to the overwhelming success of the website mainly from users like yourself, Cisco and GreenNexxus are now bringing you the Global One Million Acts of Green Site.

You already participated and helped Canada achieve its goal of One Million Acts. Now you have the opportunity to have your acts count as part of a global initiative. Don’t let the momentum stall; let’s show the rest of the world that Canada was only the beginning.

With 1.5 million acts recorded and almost 400 million pounds of green house gases saved, we are well on our way to making a global difference. To avoid any interruption in your profile and have your Acts of Green count towards the new site, please transfer your account to the Global One Million Acts of Green site brought to you by Cisco powered by GreenNexxus.

The global site has great new content and a great new feel. The front page gives you the opportunity to instantly view videos from Al Gore and NBA star Steve Nash. Transferring your account also gives you access to our weekly newsletter, featuring articles and blogs from authors such as David Suzuki, Peter Corbyn and Adam Kreek.

This is a onetime transfer; you will not need to transfer your account again.

Cisco has extended its supported for One Million Acts of Green to reach into the United States then beyond. GreenNexxus is the eco-conscious site that will be powering this endeavour.

To transfer your account, simply click on the link and follow the instructions.> > After you transfer your account, you will still be able to use your Canadian account on until July 1st, 2009.

Thank You,

The GreenNexxus One Million Acts of Green Team
