- Don Alder, virtuoso guitar player and is a former winner of the global Guitar Idol contest.

- Ogo Maduewesi, award-winning social entrepreneur and Founder/President of the Vitiligo Support and Awareness Foundation in Nigeria.

I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
