International Alopecia Day 2012 - Saturday, August 4!


A small get-together with friends? Lunch? Picnic in the park? Walk/run? Info table at a mall? Party? Check out the previous years' videos for ideas. Plan something small or large.

It's our day to raise public awareness and celebrate with friends. For those of you who've been wanting to try going out in public bald for the first time, THIS is the perfect day!

Be a part of this year's YouTube video slideshow by taking photos of yourself and your friends on August 4 to send to me later. It's BEST if you hold up a sign (can be handwritten) that says your city/location and "International Alopecia Day 2012".

Join the International Alopecia Day Group on AlopeciaWorld and/or Facebook, and post a blog about YOUR location and plans.

Please share this with your Alopecian friends around the U.S. AND all over the world - the more countries we have represented, the better! Local newspapers and TV will report about this event if we can list a number of cities and countries taking part - it BECOMES news, and helps us get the word out about Alopecia Areata.

See you OUT there!

Wow! This is wonderful to hear. I didn't even know that International Alopecia Day existed. I know about National Alopecia Areata Month in September. I guess this just gives me more reasons to have a girls nite out!

Thanks, Nicole! It exists because we created it - originally here on Alopecia World and with a video I posted on YouTube. Please join the group, spread the word, and join in on August 4.

Thanks for the post! I will definately be submitting some photos for the slideshow! Awesome idea, a great excuse to reach out and find some other local people with Alopecia. It would be nice to spend the day with others!

It's been going for a few years - we're trying to help it continue to grow!
