How to Deal With Bullies


Are you or your child being bullied because of vitiligo?

Experts say that progressive bullying can lead to low physical and psychological health, depression and low self-esteem.  Here at Vitiligo Bond we encourage you to let your light shine no matter what and keep your chin up.

We believe in knowing and teaching our kids that we are someone because God made us.  I respect my self and others.

In addition to staying positive and surrounding yourself with a positive environment this can truly help build confidence.

Talk to your child daily to keep lines of communication open, practice potential reactions to actions from bullies. Report immediately to teacher or line of authority about bullying.

Vitiligo Bond Inc., encourages our ambassadors, spokespersons, members, and partners to join us in combatting bullying. You can share and repost this article today on your page if you or someone you know has vitiligo.

Support Vitiligo Awareness!


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.
