Caring Causes: Evite Birthday Heroes

Evite, an online invitation platform, recently challenged America's children to change the world one birthday at a time. "Evite Birthday Heroes", a campaign celebrating children who donate their birthdays to charitable causes, kicks off today with a goal of having one million birthdays donated. This is part of Evite's year-long 20th birthday celebration.
