Wee little Willow, a one year old from Deerfield Illinois, raised $525.00 for the charity SHADOW and put the rest toward some girly toys and her education!Posted: December 24, 2012 Filed under: Birthday Gifts, Charity, ECHOage Birthday Parties, Gifts, Stories about children | Tags: birthday parties, birthday presents, charity birthday gifts, gift, SHADOW, wetlands Leave a comment
Now that’s a reason to celebrate!
Willow’s Mom says that their family is passionate about the preservation of natural habitats and their animals. So the charity SHADOW seemed like a great fit to donate half of Willow’s birthday money raised at her party. SHADOW is focused on preserving wetland and forest habitat for future generations.
Birthday parties certainly can be a bit overwhelming. Specially for a one year old. So when Willow’s mom found a service that could help her impart her values and provide her friends a family with an easy way to give toward long lasting, more meaningful gifts (without having to leave their homes) she jumped at the chance.
If Willow, at age one, can inspire family and friends just by celebrating her birthday, we can’t wait to see what she does for her second birthday. A very happy 1st birthday to your Willow.
