Raising Awareness Around the World

Autographs 4 Alopecia is not just about raising money for NAAF.  While we love to get the autographs and pledge our nickels to NAAF, it is also about (and maybe more important) awareness.  I'm surprised at how many people have not heard of Alopecia.  Even while in Washington DC for the national conference, people in DC were asking what it was. 

I mentioned in a recent post about my Uncle Rick and a team from our church going over to Africa.  Rick took along about a dozen or so of the NAAF bracelets to give to kids over there.  The kids were thrilled to get them.  Looking at our "stats" from our blog, we've never had any traffic from Africa, but from many other countries around the world.  If there are people in China, India, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and others finding out about alopecia...Why not Africa?  Even if they don't you can tell by the smiles on their faces...they loved them!
