For World Vitiligo Day 2014, we encourage all those who wish to film themselves dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Black or White' to upload their videos to YouTube. We will be cutting them together to make a community video for World Vitiligo Day. You can make your videos anywhere, with anything: in the street, near your favourite landmark, in the garden, with your phone or camera. It's all awesome :)
So please get out there, show your support for World Vitiligo Day, and join the effort to create more awareness.
