Get inspired by 7-year-old Jackie Sidel who generously fundraised for Food Allergy Canada by asking her guests to donate to us in honour of her birthday through EchoAge.
As mom Johanna commented, "We are very proud of Jackie, first for being open to the idea of donating a portion of her gift to a notable charity and second, for choosing something that affects our daily lives. She realizes that she can have a positive impact and change the future."
