"Embracing Diversity" bracelets are available to help raise Vitiligo awareness. What better way to help raise awareness than by advertising? The words “Embracing Diversity” are on the bracelets along with our website address www.avrf.org

The AVRF chose "Diversity" instead of "Vitiligo" since most everyone is familiar with diversity. One word that best defines diversity is “differences.” Each of us is different, and when people ask me about my skin I show them my bracelet and ask them to visit our website. Once they visit our site, then they will learn about Vitiligo.

If you are interested in getting some bracelets, please click on the following link and donate $18.00 on Pay Pal for 10 bracelets. You may also donate $10.00 on Pay Pal for 5 bracelets. Shipping and handling are included. Bracelets are available only in the Continental US. For those of you who have children and are interested, we do have children's sizes. If you do not wish to go to Pay Pal, then you may send a check payable to “AVRF Bracelets.” Mail your check to:

PO Box 7540
Clearwater, FL 33758

Be sure to specify if you want children sizes. If you do not specify, then we will send all adult sizes. Please post something on your check that your donation is for bracelets. This is a great way to help our children and also those of us who have vitiligo.
