Delta baggage trick
We apologize for the delay with the World Vitiligo Day updates because Delta Airlines has lost Yan's baggage, first on the way to Detroit with all promo materials and then on the way back to New York, again.
We are currently in recovery mode and will be back with WVD news report soon. Stay tuned!
Here is our favourite trick from Delta:
Yan's bag goes onboard in Detroit
and voila! - it never re-appears in New York
Update: the luggage was recovered next day and we are back in biz!
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
