We Love Leo

Every so often you encounter a boy like Leo. This amazing 5 year old chose to host an ECHOage party for his birthday in support of World Animal Protection Canada. What a fantastic cause this is and ECHOage is so proud to be partnered with them. This charity has worked for over 30 years to expose animal cruelty and prevent animal suffering. Leo, you really made a difference in the world. You protected so many animals. We congratulate you. Love ECHOage XOXO

Isabelle Shines Her Light

Every once in awhile you meet a child who changes your perspective. Meet Isabelle.

In her own words:

“I was born 2 months early and was diagnosed with Hirschsprungs. I spent the first two months of my life in the hospital and was taken care of by some amazing doctors and nurses. The hospitals I stayed at were UAB Hospital and Childrens Hospital, Birmingham AL. I choose to support SickKids to give back because there are a lot of kids that need help.”

And why did Isabelle choose Bloxels Build and Kano Kit as her gifts?

“I love coding and building things as well as playing Minecraft and digital games. I thought it would be cool to learn how to design my own video game and build my own computer.”

Isabelle, you are a child who has impacted the adults around you. All of us at ECHOage are feeling this way. Happy Birthday to you, you are an amazing girl. Kids can do so much more than adults think! Our smiles and thanks go to you Isabelle, Love ECHOage XO

Our baby turned double-digits. ECHOage celebrates its 10th birthday this year and 10 MILLION DOLLARS raised by children for the charities they love! These amazing kids supported schools, libraries, hospitals, food banks, animal shelters, camps and other causes in need of funding. We celebrate each child who helped make their birthday party something really special. Here’s to 10 MILLION raised and all the generous, thoughtful kids who make ECHOage a better way to celebrate!

 


Nuts for Nuts

Meet Julian. He’d like to eat peanut butter one day. But he has a severe nut allergy. This amazing 8 year old boy wants kids with allergies to have an easier time. Guess what, so do we! Julian chose Food Allergy Canada for his ECHOage party so kids with allergies will get to eat peanut butter one day! Julian, all of us at ECHOage are fighting for that day to come. Love ECHOage

Kids Can Do More Than Adults Think

Ask any child in your life: “Can kids do more than adults think?” They will undoubtedly say: YES! Test it out and let us know the responses you get. We ask kids this question regularly … they always tell us: Yes, Yes, Yes! ECHOage is a great example of how much kids can do. Check out our HERO of the day: Matthew, age 8. He chose to support: POGO (The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario). He wanted to ensure that families who are struggling with a child undergoing cancer treatment are supported. Matthew, our hats off to you. You are our hero.

A little sunshine for your day – Brielle

It’s amazing what kids can do. Brielle turned 11. And she made sure it was special. Brielle chose World Wildlife Fund to support at her ECHOage party. In her words:

“I picked WWF Canada because I love animals and I want to make sure the animals are looked after.”

As for her birthday gifts, Brielle asked for a new Cheer bag because she is a competitive cheer athlete and she needed a backpack to carry her things. Books are Brielle’s first love and she can never have too many.

Brielle is our hero.
