Posting this for the record.
I grbbed this from my friend Mary, Axegoddess off her myspace bulliten on myspace. Just thought I would put this out there and repost this here to help spread the word. I think it is such an amazing thing for the Echelon to do. Something the Echelon can do together and really make a difference :)
EDIT: I fixed all the links They were not working but they are now.
30 Seconds to Mars did a Habitat for Humanity build this past week. They raised $10,000 in bids for two 4 hour sessions in which a fan and a friend were able to join the band, their family and friends for the build. Lily (Canada) and Karina (Germany) recognized that most of us couldn't afford to bid on these chances, but wanted to make it possible for us to help Habitat for Humanity anyway.
So the House that Echelon Built was born.
Lily started a page at
All proceeds raised go to Habitat for Humanity builds. It was specified that monies are global--they go where they are needed most, not to any one region of the world. It is an INTERNATIONAL effort. In just over a week, we've managed to "build" two houses and the third is nearly 80% complete.
The amount doesn't have to be enormous. $5 buys a pack of nails. All the information you need is listed below.
THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT THE ECHELON BUILT.
Welcome! The idea for this particular house build was started by members of the 30 Seconds to Mars street team, the Echelon. The band is currently helping out with a build in their hometown of LA, and we wanted to do something worthwhile to help out as well. It..s an international project- a little more proof that when people come together, good things can happen. Regardless of how you made your way to this page, or whether you know anything about the Echelon - that simply isn..t important. What..s important is that we help Habitat for Humanity build homes for those in need. This money has been designated to go to the region in the world that needs it most - HFH will distribute the funds accordingly.
