CHANGE CAN HAPPEN

The Mission

Give a Child a Voice is a 501(c)3 organization working to educate children and adults about the importance of a child's voice and encourages children to speak out when faced with difficult circumstances. They are working toward putting an end to bullying, child abuse, and life-threatening childhood illnesses.

Founder Eric Erdman was bullied & abused as a child before learning he had advanced brain cancer at the age of 16. It took being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and an overwhelming amount of community support for him to find his voice, speaking out about his experiences and becoming the author of his own story. His journey has helped him no longer be a victim of his past.

Eric started the Give a Child a Voice movement to engage the community & get children the help they need so positive change is possible. His dream has become a reality thanks to the work being done through his foundation. Dalton Wholesale Floors proudly partners with Give a Child a Voice foundation as one of our community giving programs.

“We must raise our voices to help the many boys & girls who are suffering in silence today so they may become the author of their story like I have become the author of mine.” – Eric Erdman

Going back to in-person schooling means both increased support for children facing bullying, but also an increase in physical bullying instances. Make sure your child is aware of who they can go to and speak up if this happens. #GiveAChildAVoice

GIVE A CHILD A VOICE FOUNDER ERIC ERDMAN

Eric's Story

At the age of 16, Eric Erdman faced both brain surgery & eye surgery and lost hearing & sight in one of his eyes after he was diagnosed with Anaplastic Grade III Ependymoma.

However, the fear & grueling medical procedures aren’t what he remembers most about those months. Instead, he remember the voluntary kindness showed to him by friends, families, neighbors & even strangers. He remembers how that support transformed his perspective on life, inspiring him to share his story and pay the kindness forward.

Hear his story & learn more about his mission to give other struggling kids the same kindness he received at one of the most vulnerable times of his life, even as he continues to battle medical complications to this day.
