Eden’s 7th Birthday – Helping to Cure Leukemia and LymphomaPosted: May 15, 2014 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: birthdays, cancers, charity, ECHOage, giving, Leukemia, Lymphoma Leave a comment
Eden’s 7th birthday is one she will always remember. Never did she think that beyond receiving her much anticipated gift (a Barbie Mermaid Princess!), that she would also be helping people affected with blood cancers.
Mom Dana, however, knew that bringing charitable giving into the mix would make Eden’s birthday even more special. “Being able to share her birthday gift with a charity helped to teach Eden about the importance of giving back.”
Eden chose to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) in honour of her grandmother, a lymphoma survivor. Eden states “Her cancer is better now, but when I saw the LLSC featured on ECHOage list of charities, I knew that was the charity that I wanted to raise money for!”
“Dolls, dolls and more dolls” was the theme of this little girl’s dream birthday. She had a blast making doll clothes with her friends, whacking a piñata and throwing a pie in her brother’s face.
But while the birthday celebrations may be over, Eden’s gift continues to make a difference in the lives of many Canadians living with a blood cancer.
Hurray to this little hero, her support is part of the cure!
With blood cancer being the # 1 cancer in kids under age of 14 and with over 100,000 Canadians living with or in remission from a blood cancer; NOW is the time to recognize that Someday is Today. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) is dedicated to finding a cure for blood cancers and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. The LLSC provides much needed funding to researchers, patient support and public education.
By supporting the LLSC at your next ECHOage party, your remarkable gesture will bring hope to thousands of families across Canada living with a blood cancer.

For Saahil’s 2nd birthday he fed hungry children and got a backyard play space to call his own.Posted: October 22, 2012 Filed under: Birthday Gifts, Charity, ECHOage Birthday Parties, Gifts, Stories about children, Uncategorized | Tags: birthday gifts, birthday party, Canadian Feed the Children, charity, family, giving, invitaitons, parenting Leave a comment
Saahil’s parents wanted to give their two year old son the biggest gift of all – the opportunity to experience how good it feels to help others.
A breakfast volunteer from Eel Ground First Nation School shares a bit about Canadian Feed the Children and how Saahil and others like him are making such a big difference.
“The breakfast program has made a huge impact on our school and community. I cannot imagine working with these children every day without the breakfast program to help them through the day. Now, the children not only look forward to attending school but are much better prepared physically and mentally to challenge the rigors of the school day. Thank you once again for your invaluable contribution to our children’s future.”
There was not shortage of outdoor fun and friendship at this birthday party. Saahil, we thank you and your family for sharing your birthday celebration with us and for inspiring other little people to get the gift of their dreams while helping a charity in need.
Happy 2nd birthday Saahil. We are so proud of you!
