For her birthday, Kira got a Best Buy gift card and Cancer Free Kids got $205!

Kira’s 10th Birthday

Meet Kira who turned 10 doing what she loves.  Kira chose to support Cancer Free Kids because she is part of the Kindness and Caring Club at her school and she is always looking for new ways to help others.  Cancer Free Kids is working everyday to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease in children by funding promising research that might otherwise go unfunded.
Kira chose her birthday gifts – Best Buy gift cards – because she really loves playing on her iTouch and her Nintendo DS, and now she can get more games.

Kira’s mom Ali had this to share about her special daughter:
“Kira has a heart for children who are ill and she wanted to help in any way she could. I love ECHOage because it is an excellent opportunity to open a child’s eyes to the bigger world. It helps them understand that there are people that need our help and this reiterates to her how blessed she is.  My daughter really wants to help others in need, and this was another great opportunity to share her love for people!”

Happy Birthday Kira from everyone at ECHOage who is watching you lead the way. 


A Brand New E-Reader and $375 for Action Against Hunger for Finn’s 6th Birthday Bonanza.

Finn got an E-Reader and Action Against Hunger got $375

Finn and his friends had extreme fun at an indoor sports playground to usher in his 6th birthday party.

Finn chose to support Action Against Hunger because he “wanted to help people who didn’t have any food so they wouldn’t go hungry.”

Action Against Hunger’s vision is of a world without hunger. A world in which all children and adults have sufficient food and water, equitable access to the resources that sustain life, and are able to attain these with dignity.

Seems like at the young age of six, Finn is all about taking action! We are very proud of you Finn for turning your celebration into a birthday party that will keep on giving for years to come.
