World Vitiligo Day Recognition-Thank You President Obama

Vitiligo Bond Inc., and our vitiligo community will like to thank President Obama for taking time in 2015 to send official acknowledgment for people living with vitiligo.  After 6 years of determination, 18 Governor state issued vitiligo awareness proclamations and aiming for the moon we landed among the stars.

We would also like to thank our Georgia legislative official Congressman Hank Johnson for bringing awareness to vitiligo to the White House.  This was the first time any organization request for vitiligo recognition got a response from a President of The United States.

At Vitiligo Bond Inc., we consider this a historic honor and we hope very soon that our vision to make vitiligo a public health priority becomes a reality.  We hope by grace, that we continue to shine a light, add a voice, create events, post a picture on social media that the public understands the challenges people with vitiligo live with.  In addition, we hope that more resources and funding be made available for people living with vitiligo.

We are not able to post online official recognition document from President Barack Obama. Stay tuned on how you can view recognition from President Barack Obama.

Thank you for your support!




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.
