earthdayEARTH DAY 2015
now-April 30

Earth Day is just around the corner on April 22. It’s a wonderful time to celebrate and commit to building a clean, healthy world for generations to come.

There are so many things you can do to honor the day. We want to challenge our entire MoveStudio community - even if you already do environmentally friendly things - to pick a special, new way to honor the day and the Earth.

What can you do this month?
Learn how to recycle properly (here's the link to Dallas Recycling Info). Volunteer. Install solar panels on your roof. Organize an event in your community. Change a habit. Help launch a community garden. Communicate your priorities to your elected representatives. Do something nice for the Earth. The list can go on and on...

Here at the studio, we’ll have a box in our lobby to collect batteries throughout April. We will take these batteries to the Dallas City Home Chemical Collection Center.

We’d love to see how you celebrate! So tag us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! And Happy Earth Day!

with WFAA 8 ABC Studios

Where: WFAA 8 ABC Studios, Victory Plaza, 3030 Olive St., Dallas, TX 75219. Parking is available on the street in front of the W, or in the W Hotel lot, which is free for two hours, or on lot D on Olive Street, just past the WFAA studios on the right side of the road.

When: The party is live between 5-7 a.m. Supporters should arrive shortly before 5 a.m.

On Feb. 6, Loving on Me will celebrate its upcoming Loving on Me Day on WFAA 8 ABC and put its mission into motion with a fundraiser for the American Heart Association.
Loving On Me founder Katrina McGhee will be live on set conducting interviews with WFAA morning anchor Ron Corning at 5:20 and 6:20 a.m.

Outside it will be a Party on the Plaza with Loving on Me supporters dressed in red and positively affirming their message to the world, spelled out on signs starting with the words “I am,” the focus of this year’s Loving on Me Day.

What is Loving on Me Day? A celebration and a challenge for every woman in the world to love herself more by first defining what to love and then sharing it with the world. To define themselves, women will create signs starting with the affirming statement “I am” and followed by the word or phrase that best describes them; then share it with the world through photos social media. Our goal is to count one million of these photos on social media.

Adding to the Party on the Plaza will be top ZUMBA and yoga instructor Michie, who will offer fun ways to get fit with short yoga and ZUMBA routines. We’ll serve breakfast, give away products that share the love, dance to a DJ, and host a “selfie station” where attendees can take photos with their love-affirming signs and post to their social media networks tagged with #LovingonMe – helping with the Loving on Me goal of one million affirming photos on social media by Feb. 13.

Anchor Rob Corning will check in on the fun every 15 minutes with live shots from the Plaza, ending at 7 a.m.

Loving on Me is also about putting love into action, so for every supporter that joins the fun at Victory Plaza Loving on Me will donate $5 to the American Heart Association.
