Throw an ECHOage Party

Second Harvest is proud to be a part of ECHOage, an online birthday party service where children learn the value of giving and receiving while celebrating.

You can easily incorporate ECHOage into your child’s birthday party to benefit children who are hungry in your community, no matter what your child’s age, party theme or venue. Guests provide a donation instead of gift, and half the amount goes towards a gift of your choice for the birthday kid, and the other half goes to a charitable cause, like Second Harvest.

Here’s How:

Step 1 Register on and choose a party invitation.

Step 2 Guests RSVP and donate online 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 for guests, meaningful for kids and fun for everyone!  

Every child who has an ECHOage birthday party in support of Second Harvest becomes one of our valued Food Rescue Rangers. Meet some of our Food Rescue Rangers!

Since 2007, over 260,000 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.

NEW: ECHOage isn’t just for kids! You can incorporate giving into your bridal or baby shower, milestone celebration, or your next summer bash! Check out the full range of invitations here.
