Planning and Organizing A Birthday Party That Gives Back

Giving back—Wee little Willow, a one-year-old, raised $525.00 for the charity SHADOW and she put the rest toward her dducation. Now that’s a reason to celebrate.

Willow’s mom says that their family is passionate about the preservation of natural habitats and their animals. So the charity SHADOW seemed like a great fit to donate half of Willow’s birthday money raised at her party. SHADOW is focused on preserving wetland and forest habitat for future generations.

Birthday parties certainly can be a bit overwhelming, especially for a one-year-old. So when Willow’s mom found a service that could help her impart her values and provide her friends a family with an easy way to give toward long lasting, meaningful gifts without having to leave their homes, she jumped at the chance.

If Willow at age one can inspire family and friends just by celebrating her birthday in the park with friends, then we can’t wait to see what she does for her second birthday. A very happy 1st birthday to you, Willow.

Have you thrown a birthday party that incorporated a charity? What charity did you choose?

At ECHOage, we are modernizing the birthday party experience for both hosts and guests, replacing wasted time, money, and gifts with that oh-so gratifying feeling of being a really good parent to really great kids. No compromise (or batteries) required.
