Join the #BIRTH Week Mission with @PulangMansanas!

The #BIRTH Week Mission

As you all probably already know, it’s #BIRTH WEEK! MARS asked us to spread the song and get creative.

Here’s what I’m up to and I thought it would be fun if AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE would join me! I know this is a contest and that some of you probably don’t wanna help out because they want to win themselves but isn’t it about the fun as well? I’d really appreciate if you’d join in 🙂

I made this simple flyer:

(I tested the barcode, it should work!)

Here’s what you should do with it:

Save a high quality version of the image, print it and go spread it around your town!

Doesn’t matter where, doesn’t matter when. It can be on your way to work or school or somewhere in the subway or in the train or in the bus or on the road or give it to a random stranger. WHEREVER! Bring a scotchtape and the flyers with you and just go wild! It’s a thing of two seconds! You can also tweet photos to MARS to show them what we’re up to… BUT FOLLOW THE RULE AT THE BOTTOM!

And here’s a little favor I want to ask you for as well:

Take a photo of a flyer you just distributed and send it to adding your name and “BIRTH” in your language.

Simple right?

Since this is a really spontaneous project the deadline is pretty soon. I’d be glad if I have as many entries as possible by THURSDAY (June 20th) so I can do the collage on Friday and send it to MARS. And of course I will need ALL THE SUPPORT I CAN GET to get this project spreading as fast and to as many people as possible. So PLEASE tweet it out, spread it on your websites or social networks every day so we can get as many people together as possible!

Wanna join me? THEN GET GOING!

One rule:

PLEASE if you tweet this to MARS or send them photos of the flyers etc. ALWAYS give credit to me. Don’t steal my idea… I TRUST YOU!

But most of all:

Announcing GIVE OUT LOUD Tuesdays: #LLFD Giveaway

By now most Echelon are bringing in the days of summer with Love Lust Faith + Dreams becoming the soundtrack to new memories. We’ve watched the live streams of shows and looped the record trying to decide which track is our favorite. Today Bright Lights, but tomorrow who knows? But imagine the Echelon who have yet to listen to the record or can’t get one due to their circumstances.

We are a Phan Army and our philanthropy starts from within. We take care of our own as well as helping others. Inspired by this, we are proud to announce GIVE OUT LOUD Tuesday! This will be a recurring series for Echelon Donates with the first few being reserved for our #LLFD Giveaway!


Echelon have donated albums to be given away as well these gorgeous double sided posters from the Church of Mars shows. Check out how you can get involved or enter to win!


Starting Tuesday June 11th,  we will giveaway 2 CD/Poster packages on each GIVE OUT LOUD Tuesday until we run out.

Pay attention @EchelonDonates feed to see when you can enter to win a CD/Poster package by tweeting: “Follow @EchelonDonates, the children of the GIVING empire! #giveoutloud” You must follow @EchelonDonates to win.

If you already have the album, you can make a nomination!

Leave a comment on this post to nominate someone to receive a CD/DVD/Poster package!

You can also be a donor!

We will need your support to ship the packages to our winners, so you may also participate by donating funds. If you have an extra album that you would like to donate to be given away, we want to hear from you as well! Two donors will be selected at random to receive a poster and some ED goodies. Learn how to donate to Echelon Donates #LLFD Giveaway.

Let’s spread the music and support our community by taking care of each other. It’s what families do. We hope you join us!

UPDATE: YOU Helped Get Shannon (@smmoyer69) and Betty (@MarsGranny) to the Hollywood!

Echelon Phans supporting each other is nothing new to this family. We’ve known many who have donated to send Echelon all over the world to see a Mars show. Now, @MerloTracey & @chick_that are doing the same to help one of ED’s very own! One has donated 2 concert tickets & the other is raising funds for the airfare.

We are happy to help manage & promote this project to send ED team member Shannon and her friend Betty Banana to Hollywood!
