How can you be an Echelon and not think of @30STMVOTE? She’s been a strong voice leading the Echelon by calling them to arms to vote for the band, to have us call or tweet radio stations asking to play the latest Mars songs and of course how selflessly she dedicates her time to help others out. Look at what she’s done with Echelon Donates, starting the VyRT giveaways, Hands Up For Luca and giving away the 2 tickets she won from Jared for the LLF+D CD project she’s doing in partnership with @ACall2Arms.
Now it’s time for the Echelon to say THANK YOU SOPHIE!!! We are asking the Echelon to donate $5 or what ever can be donated so she can fly, stay in a hotel and buy a ticket to see a 30 Seconds To Mars show. We already have about 10 people who’ve donated!
If you want to say thanks to Sophie for all her hard work then send us a donation for the Echelon Gives Back To @30STMVOTE Project! PayPal us at EchelonDonates@gmail.com. MAKE SURE TO SEND IT AS A GIFT SO THERE AREN’T BANK FEES DEBITED. In the notes section please include your twitter name to be added to the card sent to Sophie.
We love you Sophie and there’s so many out there who love you too.
Besides managing Echelon Donates I’m also a busy little Echelon who’s one of the Street Team Captains for the NYC Echelon. Our first Street Team assault in July 2011 had us on a billboard in Time Square where the team won the Night Of The Hunter contest! We also responsibly papered the streets of New York promoting the Mars300 concert series in November 2011. Now Mars has a new album out so strap on your chucks or low heeled boots and we’ll be walk the streets to get the word out about Love Lust Faith + Dreams!
I asked @PulangMansanas who’s a member of Echelon Donates to whip something up for the NYC Echelon Street Team to use & she made these BAD ASS FLYERS!?!?!?
Claudia was so awesome to make flyers for the US, UK AND Australia release dates! She’s allowing everyone to use her creations so make sure to send her some love & thanks!
During the two Earth Day Events in NYC on Saturday, April 20, 2013 & on Saturday, April 27, 2013, we will also be hosting a Street Team assault getting the word out that Thirty Seconds To Mars has a new album! Email us at EchelonDonates@gmail.com if you’re interested in volunteering for either Earth Day event along with the street assault. BRING THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
A great idea for the flyers is why not print them on plantable seeded paper!?!?! It’s a great eco choice & a way to help promote Earth Day on Monday, April 22, 2013. *hint hint*
So who’s going to host their own Earth Day / LLFD street assault? Let us know & we’ll help promote it!

Growing up in Los Angeles, brownish gray air was a part of our daily lives. I remember struggling to breathe like most asthmatic kids through the haze. It is hard to believe conditions were worse before Senator Gaylord Nelson created the first Earth Day in 1970. Imagine how bad things would be today before this worthy cause was brought to national attention. Yet the battle still rages on.
In the spirit of continuing the good fight for our planet, we ask that you join us in celebrating Earth Day 2013!
Earth Day is Monday, April 22nd. Like most of you, we work on Monday but that isn’t going to stop us from helping clean our communities along with our precious planet. We’re throwing out a challenge to YOU! (Yes, you!) Not only the Echelon but anyone who cares about the planet. We are asking you to donate the most precious thing you can offer… your time!
There are many ways to celebrate the day: by volunteering to help clean your community, beautify a retirement home, remove graffiti from school for example. Or better yet, get creative and find a way that is meaningful to you! No matter how you participate, this is a great chance for you to have a positive impact on this planet.
Ideas for Earth Day challenge:
Ideas for Earth Day activities:
Whether cleaning your community or clicking away to help count bats or if you come up with a better idea, please remember to take pictures and share! Get creative with how you document your participation and email your pictures to EchelonDonates@gmail.com (and include your Twitter name please).
No money is needed to join in this cause: just your time! However, if you choose to do so, please support organizations from our previous projects Waves 4 Water or Trees For The Future. Remember to forward your donation confirmation to EchelonDonates@gmail.com to have a special note included on the card.
Get those ideas flowing and let us know you are with us!
We will be updating the teams as more come forward. Start a team in your town/country today! Tweet us to ask how.

Sophie (@30STMVOTE) tweeted yesterday announcing she is leaving Echelon Donates. This is what she had to say…
I regret to inform you that I am no longer part of Echelon Donates. As most of you know, university has taken over a big part of my life & since MARS is coming up with an upcoming album, tour & who knows what else – I want to dedicate 100% of my free time to the promotion of the band [from this account].I discussed it with Alicia, who is the co-founder of ED & she will keep going with the account & website herself. This means, there will be more Echelon Donates projects for you & the band. I will keep supporting the organization but unfortunately I won’t be able to be a vital part of it.
Thank you all so much for the beautiful ride & the continuous support you’ve shown to our projects. All of them ended up so successful because of you.
Please respect my decision & understand that I can be in only one place right now thanks to my limited personal free time.
Stay tuned for more projects to the @echelondonates account. Love you all,
I am so proud of Sophie that she’s wise enough to put school first. Sophie helped create Echelon Donates and will forever be a part of this family. We hope you will continue to support our efforts in helping to make a change in the world.
