World Vitiligo Day is an annual event specially dedicated to people with Vitiligo today, June 25th. The global event is to create awareness about the skin condition.
Vitiligo is a continual skin problem that produces white depigmentation patches that develop and enlarge only in certain sections of the skin. The white patches appear because the person has little or no skin cells.
Though, it is impossible to predict how much of the skin can be affected by Vitiligo and it is not life threatening.
The reason why Olori Supergal created this online campaign is to create awareness on Vitiligo and also to educate people about the skin condition using Social media.
The model for the campaign – Temilola Omoobajesu shared her message to encourage other people with Vitiligo to come out. In her words, she said ”Don’t let anybody’s opinion of beauty be your idea of what beauty should be. You need to accept and celebrate yourself before people will accept you. There is no need to be perfect to inspire people, let people get inspired by how you deal with your Imperfections” she said.

The online campaign was created by Ajibade Oluwatosin, founder of olorisupergal.com.
