ScrapMatters Birthday Blog Train

Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the ScrapMatters Birthday Blog Train! You have arrived from Plum Dumpling Designs.

I love birthdays, and each one is special in it’s own way. But one especially memorable birthday for me, was my son’s 8th birthday. He chose to have an “Echo Age” Birthday. Their premise is One Meaningful Cause, One Meaningful Gift. My mom had just been diagnosed with cancer and it was definitely on all of our minds, including my son’s. He chose to donate half of his birthday money to Camp Ooch, a camp for children with cancer.  I was so proud of him for choosing to do that at such a young age. My mom was in tears when she heard who he had donated to. It was such a special birthday. We had a big party for him and for his One Meaningful Gift, he got a new bike:
