Join debra of America on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday - December 3, 2019

Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (and after the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday), #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration and aims to inspire people across the globe to give back to causes and issues that matter to them. Since its launch in 2012, #GivingTuesday has grown into the biggest generosity movement in history!

Get involved this #GivingTuesday by giving a generous gift of your time, voice, or donations:


  • Learn about EB. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a complex rare genetic connective tissue disorder. There are many genetic and symptomatic variations, but all share the prominent symptom of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears with any friction. Take some time to learn about EB and pass your new knowledge along to others.
  • Read our EB Stories. The EB Community is filled with inspiring individuals and families, each with a story to share. These stories strengthen the community and create a feeling of unity, especially when those with EB have often been searching for a story that resembles their own. This #GivingTuesday, take some time to read our collection of EB stories. If you’d like to share your own experience, please email us at staff [at] debra [dot] org.
