Gabriella chose WWF for her ECHOage party because she love animals and she wants to help them to get the medication they need if they are ill. She also hopes to get a puppy for her 6th birthday! She did this all at age 6. ECHOage – A Better Way To Celebrate.
Dylan is not your typical five-year-old. Influenced by her music loving father, she is a girl who regularly listens to Sonshine and Broccoli, while dancing around her house. She also sits eagerly each week and watches her older brothers play acoustic guitar with their teacher Brock, (aka: Broccoli). Of course, we’re all wondering, how did this amazing girl end up with such a beautiful name like “Dylan” – must be… )
Dylan makes it clear: “I wanted my OWN iPod so that I didn’t have to borrow my brothers’ anymore. And, I wanted to help WWF because I love animals, i love nature, and I especially love pandas and monkeys and bats!
Louise, Dylan’s proud mother, adds: “ECHOage helps me teach my children about being generous and caring. It is amazing that while teaching my daughter compassion, she also got to choose a big birthday gift. I recently heard her tell someone that the iPod she got was a gift from all of her friends. That is a gift she will always remember!”
Dylan, we are all singing your praises today. Congratulations to a big five-year-old girl who made a big, lasting impact on us, on animals, and on many children to come. Love ECHOage.
Inspiration can strike at any time. For this six year old, it was a recent trip to Australia that had Maya talking about native animals and how she can help.
“I love animals and I rally want to help them, to make sure they are ok an safe. I really love my dog and cat at home and I also love rabbits, kangaroos and wombats!”
It was a natural fit for Maya to choose WWF.
We are so pleased that this birthday party is helping to support WWF’s mission: to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
Quite an impressive achievement for this very special six year old.
Happy Birthday and happy X-Box playing to you, Maya!
This year Lily turned 6. She celebrated with her 4th ECHOage party! Talk about commitment. This amazing girl comes back and chooses a different charity, and a different gift, each year. “I chose WWF this year because I love animals and nature and I wanted to protect the world and the animals, especially dolphins,” said Lily about her generous $153.00 contribution. She told us that she loves to go fast on her brand new scooter, and she wanted a Razor because: “I want to be like a big kid.” Lily, everyone at ECHOage thinks you are big, kind and something special. We see you come back every year, and we see that as you grow, you grow more aware of the world around you. You gave a meaningful gift to us, just by how you celebrated, so thank you Lily. And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!
