Vitiligo Bond’s Vitiligo Awareness Support Group Leader Events Guide ©
Who can start a support group? A Vitiligo Awareness Support group can be hosted by any one person or persons interested in serving as advocates for the mission and vision of Vitiligo Bond Inc. within their community.
Why did we write a support guide? Many individuals have approached us on starting support groups in the USA, Europe and India. Vitiligo Bond believes that support groups should make their groups their own based on their strengths, resources and members. Vitiligo Bond upon request has helped and continues to help members nationally and internationally on how to start a support group. We have helped groups with awareness materials.
This is a quick guide in a nutshell to get you started. Since starting Vitiligo Bond’s Awareness and support program in 2010 we have helped over 18 states get awareness proclamations in their state during the month of June so that they can bring awareness in their state. You can visit this link below to see awareness proclamations and state vitiligo leaders.
How do I start a support group? The support leader invites friends, family and guests who might be interested in the cause to their home or other location as the support leader see fit. Invitations/fliers may be sent via email or snail mail.
