How can we help?

How does my child get the birthday gift(s) and how does the charity get the donation?
The ECHOage system pools all of the contributions and then sends you (the parent of the birthday child) half of the funds in the mail by check, or by PayPal, so that your child can purchase exactly what he/she wants as a birthday present – an Ipod, new hockey skates, a bike, art supplies, dance lessons, you name it! ECHOage directs the other half of the funds you raised to the charity you chose. No need for guests to shop for a birthday gift, or pick up the phone to make a donation, ECHOage does it all for you.
