30 Seconds to Mars Fans Give the Gift that Keeps on Growing

Musician / actor Jared Leto’s list of accomplishments runs long and impressive – appearing in films like Fight Club and American Psycho, starring in the TV series My So-Called Life, serving as lead singer for the band 30 Seconds to Mars.  And now another achievement: next month, Jared turns 40!

In honor of his milestone birthday, the 30 Seconds to Mars fan club, The Echelon, is giving the gift that keeps on giving: the group is encouraging fans to make a donation in Jared’s honor to Trees for the Future in support of Timberland’s Yele Vert tree planting program in Haiti.  (Jared lived in Haiti as a child, and is actively involved in the ongoing relief efforts in the wake of the country’s 2010 earthquake.)  The tax deductible donation program runs until December 22. $1,300 has been donated by 30 Seconds to Mars fans since the October 21 launch of the campaign.

One of our favorite actor/singers and one of our favorite initiatives … we couldn’t imagine a better birthday present.  To get in on Jared’s gift, visit the Echelon Donates website.  To learn more about our Yele Vert reforestation program in Haiti, visit the tree planting section of our website.
