Introducing ECHOage, the innovative website easily helps parents turn their child's birthday party into a time for giving and receiving -- by inviting party guests to contribute money online. ECHOage.com then pools and divides the funds, with half going towards the purchase of ONE memorable gift for the birthday child and the other half going to a charity of their choice -- hence the company's mantra of "One Gift, One Cause."
Parents have eagerly embraced the ECHOage.com concept because it provides them with an easy way to teach their children about the value of giving. By simply inviting their friends to celebrate, children are helping both the planet and charities in need of funding.
ECHOage's online tool simply redirects funds already being spent on birthday gifts for a child's party. Children still have the party they want because any party can be an ECHOage party. The birthday child chooses one large, memorable present and has the opportunity to contribute to the world, which makes them feel part of something meaningful.
ECHOage was founded and created by two mothers -- Alison Smith and Debbie Zinman -- who believe that children can improve the world one birthday at a time. A North American company, based in Toronto, Canada, ECHOage is an innovative online party planning website. ECHOage manages the online invitation and RSVP process, facilitates the donation and issuance of the tax deductible receipt, provides thank you notes and awards, and even saves parents precious time and money.
ECHOage's unique ONE gift, ONE cause concept enables children and parents to support those in need, protect the environment and inspire others to follow in their footsteps, all by simply pooling and redirecting funds customarily spent on birthday gifts.
