LIVE CHAT! Being Green

Posted by at 3:41 am in Kid Power, Live Chats | Permalink

Greetings, Splotter Earthlings! The next STACKS live chat is all about BEING GREEN, so mark your soon-to-be-recycled-biodegradable-calendars!

WHEN: Saturday, April 18, 2009, 4-5 p.m. ET
TOPIC: Being green!
Save the Planet message board moderator

Earth Day is on April 22nd, and we’re super psyched to hear from you guys about how to save energy, save animals, and save our planet! (Oh. Humans too.)

Here’s your chance to talk to STACKS kids all over the world about how you can contribute to stopping global warming, preserving animal habitats, and making our one and only Earth the best place to live.

Can’t wait for the live chat? Get the conversation started on the Save the Planet message board. AND if you’re already on the board, get excited — because Elise (the Save the Planet board moderator) will be joining our chat as a very special guest. Yay for Elise!

— STACKS Staffers

    ok this has nothing to do with Going Green but, I am answering “puppy lover777″‘s question, you can go on the message boards, on you profile there is a “stack” that says “my message board”, if you click on it it says “Search for my Posts” underneath that it says “Latest from the boards and All Message Boards” click on all message boards and there you are, if you have any questions click “help” on the left side of the message boards(above)Talk laterzzzzzzz

  36. puppy lover777

    omg i love the earth as much as the next girl but i have a question ………………how do i chat with people on the stacks????????????

  37. puckgirl

    I do everything i can 4 the Earth, how ’bout u? People say there is no such thing as global warming, they say it just a cycle that the earth goes through(such as the Ice age) but u know what? i rather figure out that it was a cycle and i did everything i could than figure out that it wasn’t a cycle and didnt do anything to help, ya know what i mean????GO GREEN!!!!

  89. Nancy, STACKS Staffer

    @avidreader (Azzie): There are several time zones in Canada, so the easiest thing is to ask and adult what time it would be for you if it were 4PM in New York.
    @Natalie (hp_twilight_catz): On the day of the chat, you’ll also be able to get to it from the message boards. Or, just check this blog entry – we’ll have a huge SIGN INTO THE CHAT link!

  90. Princess Lovebug
