ECHOage your child's next birthday party
Second Harvest is proud to be an ECHOage Charity Partner. ECHOage is a online birthday party service where children learn the value of giving and receiving while celebrating.
Since 2007, over 200,000 healthy meals have been provided for children going hungry in Toronto by ECHOage birthday parties! Thank you to everyone who has supported Second Harvest during their celebrations.
Rio loves food. That’s why she chose to support Second Harvest on her ninth birthday with an ECHOage party.
“A lot of people in Toronto don’t have enough food, so I think it’s important to support an organization that gives people food,” she says.
Rio celebrated her birthday with a skating party and sleepover that included plenty of candy and pampering. With the $145 contributed by her friends and family in lieu of gifts, she was able to donate half to Second Harvest and she’s saving up the other half for “something big” like the tablet she bought last year.
On behalf of everyone at Second Harvest and the kids who will get to enjoy 145 healthy meals because of Rio’s generosity: thank you!

No matter what your child’s party theme or venue, you can easily ECHOage your child's party to benefit children who are hungry in your community. When party guests provide a donation instead of gifts, half will go towards a meaningful gift for the birthday girl or boy, and the other half goes to a meaningful cause.
Step 1 Register on ECHOage.com and choose a party invitation.
Step 2 Guests RSVP and donate instead of bringing a gift, while you watch the giving grow on your ECHOage Tracker.
Step 3 When your party is over, you'll receive half the funds in the mail from ECHOage to purchase one meaningful birthday gift for your child and the other half will go to rescuing healthy, surplus food for children who are hungry in your community.
Easy on guests, meaningful for kids and fun for everyone! Now that's something to celebrate.
