Fundraise for Us
Vitiligo affects 1% – 2% of the world’s population and currently, there is no cure. Our mission is to beat vitiligo by eradicating the psychological, social and physical effects of the condition on people’s lives, and by finding effective treatments and a cure.
As a charity, we are completely funded by the donors, members and fundraisers who contribute to the work we do. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support and generosity of people like you.
Raise money through sponsored challenges & events
Are you looking for a fitness goal this year, or simply to raise awareness of vitiligo amongst your friends, family and work colleagues?

eBay for Charity has partnered with the PayPal Giving Fund to make it easy for sellers to donate 10% to 100% (or as low as 1% for eBay Motors vehicles) of your item’s final sale price to a charity.
All you need to do is add the charity and donation percentage to your listing. After the item sells and the buyer pays, the system will automatically collect your donation. PayPal Giving Fund will then email you with a donation receipt.
