Where can you host a Friends of Live Earth event?
You can host a FOLE event(s) at a single or multiple locations around the world, including India. It can be held anytime from Dec 5th through January 7, 2009. All events must be registered by Dec. 6, 2008 at the Live Earth website
Hosting a Friends of Live Earth event can be done as follows
Send an email to all the members of your mailing group(s), local chapters, and friends/family sharing details of the Mumbai Dec 7th 2008 event, your own Friends of Live Earth India event(s) if applicable, encouraging them to organize their own event(s). Share this flyer.
Host your event(s) at a single or multiple locations across India simultaneously with the main concert event in Mumbai on Dec. 7th. As long as it is not competing with the main event in scope or celebrities, you can host a concert or other public event in support of Live Earth India, and show selections/the entire show from the concert from the live STAR broadcast.
Host your event(s) at a single or multiple locations across India anytime between Dec. 5th and Jan 7, 2009.

How can Ixoraa help promote your business/entity
If an entity makes a significant effort in hosting a major Friends of Live Earth event(s) or if your corporation has made a significant contribution in honoring a mandate that "greens" office campus, and/or office environment, then:
It may be showcased during the Dec 7th, Live Earth India event in Mumbai. Entities seeking to create a large-scale "Friends" event suitable for this type of video feed should contact Ixoraa Media staff.
If your event(s) is held at a later date but before Dec 31, 2008, it may be showcased in the final documentary that Live Earth will produce post-event or on the Live Earth website.
The entity may be highlighted on the Live Earth website as part of "Event of the Day." This notification reaches over 400,000 members worldwide in the weekly email that will give exposure to your effort in highlighting and creating awareness regarding the global climate crisis.
Based on an entity’s contribution, Ixoraa Media will work with Live Earth to create features on specific events that will be posted to the Live Earth India blog, which will be a permanent part of the Live Earth India site, and which can contain logos, photos, video clips and links back to your organization.
