A Cause Worth Celebrating
Want to cut back on the amount of toys that never make it out of the toy box, or think it’s time to teach your kids about charity? Then check out ECHOage for your child’s next birthday bash. Founded by two moms, this site invites your party’s guests to make a contribution (between $10 – $30) instead of bringing a present. Half of this is then donated to a charity, while the other half is sent to the host so that they can purchase a single gift for the birthday girl or boy. Your child gets one meaningful present that she really wants, and learns a lesson in giving. Bonus: you don’t have to clean up the wrapping paper and ribbons left behind in the aftermath of tearing open gifts!
Do you think your kids would be cool with an ECHOage party? Or is the thrill of the pile of presents half the fun of a birthday party?
