Echelon Donates (ED) is honoring Thirty Seconds to Mars’ guitarist Tomo Miličević and his wife, Vicki, simultaneously with a joint birthday project that will recur annually. To celebrate Tomo’s birthday on September 3rd & Vicki’s birthday on October 30th, ED has chosen to support the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as the featured charity.
Tomo and Vicki have inspired many Echelon with their never-ending commitment to saving and protecting animals. We couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute than supporting one of the world’s leading conservationist organizations in their honor. Not to mention that Tomo and Vicki avid supporters of WWF as well.
People can participate in two ways: donate directly to WWF or show us how you fight for the world in your community! Volunteer at a pet shelter, clean up a park, help an elderly neighbor by walking their dog…the possibilities are endless!
It feels good to give back and show the world why the Echelon is a force to be reckoned with for good. But this year Echelon Donates is giving back as well! We are picking 2 donors at random to win an autographed Love Lust Faith + Dreams insert purchased from Newbury Comics along with some Echelon Donates stickers! And don’t worry we verified that the autographs are authentic.
The race is on to celebrate the birthdays of our favorite couple by supporting a great organization!
Deadline to participate is October 25th 2013.
