Vitiligo Bond Annual Empowerment Event-Macy’s Collaboration

National Vitiligo Bond Inc., Foundation aka Vitiligo Bond is a nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia.  The organization hosts its annual makeover event for overcomers living and accepting vitiligo. Members of the organization were paired with make-up artist that did their make-up.  Women were then styled by Macy’s stylist to show case new summer fashion collection. Women and youth then did a fashion show to show off their courage and summer fashion line for Macy’s. Guest who attended the event got treated to giveaways, light refreshments and tastings of the famous sweet potato pie from Beloved Sweets.  Georgia state mental health counselors who know of our organization are happy to know that we exist and that we are here as a source of inspiration and bridging the gap.

About

Natasha Pierre McCarthy is the proud founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and encouragement to individuals with vitiligo. From a vision through teaching as a Christian business professor, Vitiligo Bond was created. We educate through creative forms to patients and the public. Through vitiligo 101 sessions at Emory University with Dr. Holla, special community events, social media, partner support groups, public figures and state leaders we are able to bond and have available support for anyone suffering with vitiligo. Vitiligo Bond has created a path for vitiligo awareness and positive expression. We now have the following states through Governor Proclamations that recognize vitiligo awareness: {Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, & West Virginia}. In addition, Vitiligo Bond has been recognized by Congressman Hank Johnson. Congressman Johnson was also instrumental in our advocacy efforts to help get special recognition during the month of June from our President Obama to recognize and stand together with people who suffer with vitiligo. I believe that God created us for a purpose and everyone deserves the right to have fullness and a quality life. We all have the ability to shine. Vitiligo Bond Inc. is constantly working to raise awareness of the mysterious illness and use their platform in order to fund research that will hopefully lead to the discovery of the cause and a cure for vitiligo.
