“The Lady Avengers of the Echelon! A crew of super woman fans making earth a way better place in honor of their fave pop-rock martians.” – MTV ACT

For the first time since its inception, Echelon Donates is honoring beloved drummer and genius musician Shannon Leto in our latest birthday project: Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Thirty Seconds to Mars has inspired and motivated many Echelon to take a stand and do something. As an integral part of 30STM, Shannon is no different. Our Shanimal rarely speaks but when he does we all stand up and listen.

To celebrate Shanimal’s birthday on March 9th, ED has chosen the Nobel Peace Prize organization Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) as the featured charity. As many of you know, MSF has provided immediate medical assistance “to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation” all over the world.

Let’s celebrate the birthday of our favorite drummer and a great organization!
