Support Adrenal Cancer Research with @SpencerBell Tribute Album II

“I’m honestly not sure where this life is going
And I just as honestly do not care
So long as I can love
And be loved
So long as I can inspire
And be inspired
So long as the sun keeps sliding through the sky,
And the rain still falls on occasion,
I’m sure that whatever supremely awaits me
Shall come
And when finality brings itself to me
I will not run and vainly avoid the inevitable
I will cast my arms out and blindly
Embrace my end
Just as I have always embraced whatever
Has come with the wind”

-Spencer Bell

Announcing @JaredLeto’s 42nd Birthday Project: Revive the Rainforest with @Treesftf! #RiseAgainforJL

JLBdayBanner
It’s the time of year for being thankful and giving back, which means its time for Echelon Donates to announce its yearly birthday celebration for Jared Leto. Though he may not look like it, our muse will be 42 years old this December! To honor the occasion, we are excited to once again partner with Trees For the Future to support a cause near and dear to his heart – bringing the world’s forests back to life.

Our last collaboration planted over 71,000 trees in Haiti to honor Jared’s 40th birthday. It was such a huge success that in true Leto fashion, this year we’re going even bigger with our goal of 100,000 trees to Revive the Rainforest in Brazil! This has been an unbelievable year for Jared as our best-kept secret (his awesomeness) has finally been acknowledged by so many. With all this attention, let’s show them how he inspires the Echelon to come together to do great things.

To donate visit the CrowdRise page Trees For The Future set up for this fundraiser. All proceeds go directly to Trees for the Future Revive the Rainforest program in Brazil.

Just a $10 donation will plant 100 trees AND give you a chance to win 1 of 3 AMAZING PRIZES!

Winners will be chosen completely at random for:

1. A 32 inches wide by 40 inches long (it’s a biggie!) poster donated by the Susquehanna Bank Center that was signed by all three of the guys at the Camden, NJ USA show September 29, 2013. (I personally watched Tomo sign over himself, so yes, it is there!)

2. Mars Yearbook Volume 3
Mars Yearbook Vol. 3
3. The Love Lust Faith + Dreams Super Deluxe Box Set donated by @MelindaManson (THANK YOU + YOU’RE SO AMAZING!!! I wish Santa would bring me this!)
Deluxe Box Set

You must forward your donation confirmation email to donate@echelondonates.com with your Twitter, and the prize you hope to win.

If you donate more than $10, you can choose to enter for more than one prize. For example, donate $20 and 1 entry can be for the yearbook and the other for the signed poster. One winner will be chosen for each prize.

You have until January 1st to donate, enter the raffle, and get your name on his birthday card!

We know the Echelon love a challenge, so who’s ready to rise again for Jared Leto?

UPDATE: To donate via PayPal send donations to alicia@echelondonates.com. Don’t forget to email your twitter name & the item you’d like to enter for the raffle.

Clarifications about the EMA points & how they work via @30STMVOTE

#ECHELON- Spread the word: 

We need to get moving! We are currently at the 3rd position which is not bad but it is not great. The elimination phase will start soon & only the top 5 will survive so we’re currently at the edge.TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE POINTS:Right now the daily limit is 6 votes per day. YES, I know the rules say that 10 votes is the limit but this will be the case ONCE all of the actions are available. Check this out:

  • Watch a video
  • View a flipbook
  • Read an article
  • Take a poll (from 17 Sept)
  • Like/follow MTV EMA
  • Like/follow an artist (from 17 Sept)
  • Share/email a page
  • Refer someone to mtvema.com
  • Tag an artist (from 17 Sept)
  • Cast a vote (from 17 Sept)

10 actions = 10 votes. Right now, you can only do 6 actions out of 10, this is the reason that’s the daily limit so you don’t have to exhaust yourselves by trying to find imaginary points. You will not get them. Don’t waste hours at the site.

Actually, you can get those points every day in about 5 minutes. Seriously. Your daily routine at the EMA site should be:
-Watch a video. Actually you have to watch an entire video playlist, so I suggest you choose a playlist which contains ONE video like “Classic EMA performances” or some sort. Once you watch this = 1 point.

  • View a flipbook. This is a photo album for those having problems understanding what this is. Check ONE flipbook & check all the pictures until the end. 1 point.
  • Read an article. Go through the 3-4 articles of the EMA site just to make sure you get that point.
  • Unfollow/Unlike the EMA page & follow/like them again. (Oh well…we need that extra point, right?)
  • Share a page to Twitter/Facebook. You don’t have to e-mail it…Sharing is easier. I suggest you share the Biggest Fans page or the Thirty Seconds To Mars Team for obvious reasons. 1 point again!
  • Refer someone at the EMA site. Well that’s a tricky one & we can’t always get that point. At least not daily. If you go to your Team Page, you will see “Recruit Fans” under “My Team”. Click on the Twitter button & you’ll see that it will re-direct you to Twitter & it will provide a UNIQUE reference link that’s only for you. If you tweet this & someone JOINS our Team via YOUR link, you will get an extra point because you will have referred them to the EMA site successfully.

Anyway, at least 5 points daily is a MUST.

Yes, I know I’m currently first at the MARS Team but as I said, this didn’t happen because I’m smarter or because I have more free time in my hands. It happened because I looked around carefully and I was lucky enough to find out how this whole thing works. If you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask me but please READ THIS FIRST.

Spread the word about this post & let’s win this thing! Really…we won “Best Rock Video” at VMA, now 3rd place at EMA is ridiculous. Do this “ritual” every day & we’ll see a difference.

p.s. If you’re still having doubts about how this whole thing works, open a new tab with your points & refresh everytime you complete one of those actions above. You’ll see that once you do one of them, the extra point will appear just fine.

Now start gaining points!!
