Event Beneficiary

National Vitiligo Bond Inc Foundation aka Vitiligo Bond Inc., (VBI) is the beneficiary.  VBI is a registered nonprofit 501c(3) organization that aims to provide support and advocacy for people living with vitiligo. VBI has grown into a worldwide support group, through its social media presence.  VBI is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and a cure for Vitiligo.

The founder of VBI, Natasha Pierre McCarthy is a vitiligan, and understands what it is like to live with the disorder.   This has given her the passion and understanding to advocate for others living with the disorder.  Natasha hopes that her platform will provide support to members and improve their quality of life.

VBI continues to grow in popularity. Its social media presence provides hundreds of vitiligans worldwide to access with a private VBI Facebook support group.  VBI has mentored several state start-up support groups.  The last seven years VBI has worked with legislation and state governors to help coordinate state awareness for 18 states. In addition, VBI works with community partners to educate about vitiligo.  VBI has a Vitiligo Awareness, anti-bullying intervention program and a self-esteem social on-going program geared towards youth and adults. VBI supporters are proud of the organization’s many accomplishments and look forward to its continued success.


The National Viitligo Bond Inc Foundation and American Vitiligo Research Foundation worked with Congressman Hank Johnson of Georgia to introduce Bill H.Res.213. 
H.Res.213 recognizes the seriousness of vitiligo and bullying.
