    Send Your Photo to Our "Uniquely Beautiful" Site!

    Uniquely Beautiful showcases the unique beauty of those with Vitiligo--both for others to see, and for those of us with Vitiligo to appreciate our own beauty. While our is a private network, Uniquely Beautiful is a separate site for public view in order to encourage others with Vitiligo. However, there are no names or contact information, just photos of faces.

    To have your photo be part of Uniquely Beautiful send a face shot or a photo that has your face in it (without makeup, and whether or not you have Vitiligo on your face). We'll add it to the wall of beautiful Vitiligo faces. Someone with Vitiligo coming to this site might feel instantly better about him or herself, knowing the rest of us exist. Someone who doesn't have it would hopefully begin to recognize the diversity and beauty of who we are.
