ECHOage gives Canadians a unique way to contribute to the causes they care deeply and passionately about
Make-A-Wish® Canada is proud to have been one of the first national Canadian charities to work with ECHOage. Their innovative platform allows children to become philanthropically minded at an early age and give-back to make our communities stronger. The funds raised through ECHOage has helped Make-A-Wish® grant the transformational wishes of children, ages three through 17, with life-threatening medical conditions. Together, with partners like ECHOage, we bring hope, strength and joy to courageous children and families when they need it most. We are thankful for ECHOage’s on-going and strong support!
ECHOage occupies the unique position of helping it’s clients as much as it impacts it’s beneficiaries. As birthday hosts chose Autism Speaks Canada as their charity partner, we not only receive donations from the party guests, we make new friends and have the opportunity to spread awareness about autism and the important work that our organization is doing across Canada. The autism community is on the receiving end of the creative and impassioned way that ECHOage is making a difference.
ECHOAge has been a wonderful partner to Second Harvest since we first started working together in 2012. Over the years, the platform has allowed us to raise over $75,000 for our food rescue program, which is enough to rescue and deliver food for 150,000 meals for people experiencing food insecurity in Toronto and beyond. This is also an ideal way for us to connect with young people in our community who care about food security issues and spark what we hope becomes a life-long relationship with Second Harvest and dedication to helping those in need. Our birthday “Rescue Rangers” and their donors know that they have made a difference in the community through their gifts.
ECHOage gives Canadians a unique way to contribute to the causes they care deeply and passionately about. Over the years, thousands of young supporters have shared their birthdays’ with WWF-Canada, finding a way to have a voice and make difference. ECHOage has given WWF-Canada the opportunity to develop an early and meaningful relationship with young people and it is our hope that these young people will become life-long champions for the environment and wildlife. Their early support contributes to our ability to fund critically important conservation projects in Canada and across the globe.
I have been an ECHOage user since the beginning. It is by far the easiest, most convenient, and meaningful way to throw a child’s birthday party and i am proud to have inspired my friends and neighbours to use ECHOage too. My children have learned to think of others, and to give of themselves, when it comes to celebrating milestone events in their lives. I don’t even have to ask my children to pick a charity to support around their birthday time, they do this instinctively, and it makes them feel empowered by becoming giving members of our community. Thank you ECHOage! You have made this possible for our family.
I love ECHOage for many reasons. Primarily the platform has given me an opportunity to have many interesting discussions with my children about the needs of others in our society. My children had no idea how many charities existed, and how needed these services are for so many. Just scrolling through the list of charities on the ECHOage website openness up this amazing conversation with my children about how we can help others by first becoming aware, and then raising awareness, and then raising funds. I love this benefit the most each time we use ECHOage! There are so many other benefits for parents, like time-saving RSVPs, and efficiency for the gift-giving, but truly the sense of value my children now possess because they use ECHOage every year is by far the best benefit to me as a mom.
I have been using Echoage for my children's birthday parties for 6 years now and just love the concept! With Echoage I can teach my kids the value of giving to those less fortunate and reduce the amount of toys coming into my house! The website is simple to use as a party host as well as a guest; it's much more convenient to make an online donation then going out to buy a gift. Thank you Echoage for having a positive impact on my children and the world.
