Awesome stats from 2013: enough people to fill 7 major football stadiums!
We have some great news to share today. Our presentations on vitiligo were in top 2% of the most viewed materials on SlideShare, a popular document sharing platform, in 2013. Lots of people downloaded our free Vitiligo Q&A in 7 languages from our website, too. Altogether, they would fill a large NFL stadium!
Another good news is that we are nearing our target number of petitions for the UN. As of today, we have collected 477,888 online signatures. This adds another six major football stadiums to our league!
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
