Celebrate Earth Day 2013 with Echelon Donates (#ED4ED)

EARTH DAY Banner2-1

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.


Hands Up for Luca Collage and More from @30STMVOTE and @MylesKQuotes

Thank you to everyone (30 SECONDS TO MARS, MYLES KENNEDY FANS and ALL the rest) who took part in our HANDS UP FOR LUCA project (inspired by Myles Kennedy)!

Hands Up for Luca Collage
We achieved more than we hoped for thanks to your incredible participation & will to help a great child like Luca. We will not forget that. However, we will need your help once again.

Hands Up for Luca: Part Two

Everyone can participate in the second part (meaning you’re not required to have taken part in the first part). We’re asking you to:

  • Print the full definition of the collage, go out in the streets (or generally somewhere outdoors) & post it wherever you can. Let’s make this huge! Maybe someone will see this & will decide to find more about Luca & maybe even donate. Take pictures of your efforts & email them at fansforluca@yahoo.com with subject “Outer Mission For Luca” including your (Twitter/FB) name & country.
  • Bring the collage to Myles Kennedy’s -Alter Bridge’s & Thirty Seconds To Mars’ attention by tweeting them its link to them (@MylesKennedy, @alterbridge , @30secondstomars, @jaredleto, @shannonleto, @tomofromearth). Make sure you mention @for_luca, @myleskquotes & @30stmvote in your tweets. (We know it’s a lot to ask in 140 characters, that’s why you’re encouraged to send more than one tweet)
