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!
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!
Ali of Echelon Donates and @chick_that are managing the PayPal account together for donations. If you could spare a few dollars to send 2 Echelon to Hollywood Bowl, please do so! The email address for PayPal is email@example.com. If you want to donate but do not have a PayPal and want to pay via credit card, use this link: https://t.co/Y9NkGIgUvn
You will receive a confirmation from Echelon Donates new email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not receive a confirmation email from us, please forward your donation confirmation to us along with your Twitter so that I can acknowledge you properly!
Thank you for your generosity!
ENOUGH MONEY HAS BEEN RAISED TO SEND BOTH SHANNON AND BETTY TO THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL!!!!!
Who saw the last minute tweets from Jared Leto saying he was going to do a
#UnionSquareMarsFlash on Saturday, May 11, 2013? Well Ali (AKA Alicia) the leader of our team happened to be plugging in the address to her hotel in Philly into her GPS when she saw the tweet. Instead of heading off to Philly she put the peddle to the metal & hauled butt into NYC!
It was a small gathering of less than 50 Echelon who answered the call. No mic’s were needed & Jared’s voice stood out from the loud song of sirens mixed with the rest of the sounds from the city. Ali described the event via twitter as…
Some sermons move the soul.
@jaredleto singing moves me more than a priests words ever could #ChurchOfMars
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!

We all get geeky about random things from time to time, and seeing this brought out the inner science geek of our dear Alicia! Science geek or not, you gotta admit that is super cool (no pun intended….well maybe a little). All credit to @EkmiEcheline & @ValRie84!
We are so happy that ChrissafromMars (@ChrissaSigh) shared this video with us about her amazing daughter’s choice to use her birthday as an opportunity to raise money for Panda Paws Animal Rescue. Jazmine, you rock!
