Vitiligo Support International Inc. (VSI) is a patient driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering a comprehensive resource of vitiligo education, research and awareness for those whose lives have been affected by vitiligo.

We are here to address your questions and concerns and help you connect with our community. You will find the hope, support and healing that can only be offered by those who understand best - those who have walked in your shoes.

VSI Charity Walk for Vitiligo

Many of you have expressed an interest in helping raise much needed funding for VSI by participating in a fundraiser. We now have a fun, healthy opportunity that will take very little effort, but could make a real difference in the lives of those living with vitiligo.

We hope each of you will consider participating in our first "VSI Charity Walk."

If you are at least 18 years of age (or younger with permission) and would be willing to walk a mile or two, at a time, date and location of your choice, you could help see that vital VSI programs will continue in 2010.

If you can walk by December 31, 2009, that would be great. If you cannot walk by that date, then walk when you can, as donations are always welcome!

Simply print sponsor forms for friends, teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, work associates, small businesses that you frequent, etc.

You could even place a sponsorship form in each of your holiday cards this year.

It will help your potential sponsors if you fill in your name on the sponsor form before you send it out.

If you are willing to walk for vitiligo, all you need to do is follow these two steps

  1. Read and submit this online form for EACH participating walker
  2. Copy this Sponsor form, filling in your name on the top line, then distribute to as many people as you can think of who might be willing to make a tax deductible donation in your honor.

Additional Ideas for Sponsorship

You could organize a lunch time walk at your company or business and speak with your company about making a flat donation to VSI on your behalf.

All those people who order candy bars or gift wrapping from you/your children would probably be happy to write a quick check to support you.

Do you need volunteer hours for a school project or club?

See if your Girl Scout or Boy Scout Troup, or religious or civic organization might be willing to participate, or earn a badge by having a group walk and getting sponsors.

(Contact VSI at if you need additional information or help setting this up.)
