ECHOage: Teaching Children About Giving Back
Monday, October 6, 2008
We absolutely love the simple, yet altruistic concept behind ECHOage.com. ECHOage allows parents to send electronic birthday invitations to friends and family on behalf of their children and request money for their child's birthday gift. ECHOage then divides the gift amount in half and the birthday boy or girl gets to choose one big meaningful gift and then the remaining money goes to the charity they've chosen.

I just used echoage for my daughter's birthday and
it was such an easy process. I loved how it kept track of who was coming and any comments the parents had about the special needs of the child coming ie. food allergies. My daughter ended up raising over $250 dollars for her charity. I received a cheque for $250 for a special gift for my daughter. She got her gift and then purchased extra books for her class with the extra money. All around it was such a pleasant experience.
