Stories & News News Celebrate giving with ERIC on 'Giving Tuesday' Giving Tuesday is a global movement to celebrate charitable giving. It is the perfect antidote to the start of the festive shopping season, which is kicked off by the sales frenzy on ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Cyber Monday’. It is an opportunity to join people around the world in giving to the charities they value most. If you value the work that ERIC does to help children and teenagers with bladder and bowel problems live full and happy lives, please support us on Giving Tuesday. Whether you make a donation, share your story, or just raise awareness of the help children and families can get from ERIC, whatever you give will make a difference to the people ERIC supports. Some ideas of how to give to ERIC: • Bake a cake to sell and donate the proceeds to ERIC • Click here to make a donation online, by post (ERIC, 36 Old School House, Britannia Road, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 8DB) or by phone (0117 301 2103) • Share your story of living with or overcoming a bladder or bowel problem Why give to ERIC: Every month over 20,000 people visit the ERIC website to get support and information to help with bladder and bowel problems. Whilst this might seem like a huge number, there are still many families who suffer alone thinking they are to blame for their child’s condition and being unaware about the help available. By giving to ERIC, you can help create a world where children and teenagers affected by wetting or soiling issues can live free from shame, embarrassment, isolation and fear.
