Happy New Year 2014 from VR Foundation
Where ever you are and whatever you are celebrating, best wishes from us for the holidays and the coming New Year.
All of us here at the VRF would like to extend a big Thank You to all of our supporters, followers and vitiligo advocates. Thanks to your generous support, 2013 was our most successful year yet.
We are ever nearer to our goal with the World Vitiligo Day campaign, with now 474319 signatures. We would not be where we are today without you.
As always, we look forward to keeping you up-to-date on our momentous progress and research throughout 2014. We have some exciting projects ahead that we are eager to share with you - so stay tuned for more from us in the new year.
Have an awesome holiday!
