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

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

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?

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.

.@30STMVOTE and @MylesKQuotes announce Echelon for Luca!

Echelon for Luca

We’ve been having this project in our thoughts for quite a while & we believe it’s about time we launched it. It is created by @30STMVOTE & @MylesKQuotes (personal profiles: @sophiecaley & @marsketeer respectively).

Myles Kennedy for LucaWe were inspired by Myles Kennedy (the frontman of Alter Bridge & Slash’s band) who recently did the famous “hands-up for Luca”.

Luca is a beautiful 3 year old who was struck down with Meningococcal Septicaemia in early January and his life changed forever. This horrendous disease ravaged every part of his body in hours and left him fighting for his life!

With less than a 3% chance of survival Luca pulled through, however, he was not unscathed.

Luca lost both of his legs and all of his tissue, some muscle and skin below his hips. He has massive skin and tissue and muscle loss across his arms and shoulders and is now fighting to save his knees which have been severely damaged.

Our main goal with the specific project is to raise awareness about Luca & his disease. How are we going to do that?

We want YOU to send a “Hands Up for Luca” picture to this email: fansforluca@yahoo.com

  • Send the email with subject “Hands Up for Luca”
  • Include the picture (.jpg, .jpeg, .png extensions are acceptable).
  • Please keep a decent quality in the picture.
  • Include your Twitter name (or if you don’t have a Twitter account, your Facebook name) & your country in the email.

You can bring in your friends and/or family to take part. We aim to create a huge collage & share it with you. We want to make our voices heard because causes like that deserve to be acknowledged.

Deadline: 28th of February.

We’d like to encourage you to donate for Luca but this project does NOT require you to. This is about raising awareness, not raising funds. We want to give the chance to everyone out there to take part whether they have the ability to donate or not.

HOWEVER if you DO donate to this cause, please send us an email confirmation with your donation & we will specially thank you in the end of the project.

 For Luca

Important note: This project is not limited to the Echelon and/or the Myles Kennedy fans. Everyone is welcomed to take part in this beautiful cause, no matter the fanbase & no matter the music you listen to. This is about making the world a better place by spending 5 minutes from your life to spread the word about something valuable.

“With so many Echelon attending, it was only natural that we ask them and all the festival goers to stand alongside us and DOC NYC to help out during the harsh circumstances that have affected so many,” stated Alicia Zen,Co-founder Echelon Donates. “It’s what’s needed and we can’t sit aside and do nothing.”

  • Canned fruit
  • Canned vegetables
  • Peanut butter (plastic jars)
  • Mac and cheese (packaged)
