An Attitude of Gratitude

This year for Kate’s 4th birthday, she got a Mini Ipad from her friends, and she raised over $300 for the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH)!

Kate chose to get an Ipad because she loves to download apps and play games like “Strawberry Shortcake” and “Littlest Pet Shop”. She chose to support the MCH – from ECHOage’s list of over 250 charities – because her grandmother worked there for many years. During that time, Kate saw for herself how much the Children’s helps young boys and girls who are sick, and have to stay in the hospital.

Kate, you are an ECHOage Hero – you have made a big difference in the lives of children in Montreal who are in the hospital, and you have inspired many other children to follow in your footsteps. Happy Birthday to you, amazing girl!


Jaymee’s FIRST birthday bash gave kids in hospital hope. Now that is something to celebrate!

Before she could even say “birthday cake” Jaymee has already raised $390 for the Montreal Children’s Hospital.  This wee little one is leading by example and shaping the next generation of giving kids.

For her first birthday, Jaymee (and her family) chose to support the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Jaymee’s mom explains the motivation for choosing the hospital as their charity of choice. “The hospital does so much to help children of all ages every single day and we wanted to help them continue their high standard of care in any way we could. At 10 months of age, we had to bring Jaymee to the children’s hospital. Thank goodness everything turned out okay but she was very well taken care of so we wanted to thank them in this way.”Screen Shot 2013-03-22 at 1.59.45 PM

For Jaymee’s gift she will be getting an outdoor playground and can’t wait to play in it this summer with her big sister Gabrielle!

Jaymee, your ECHO, at age one will certainly have positive impact, far and wide.

Happy, happy birthday!
