Anti-Bullying Project

Since posting my last blog entry about my experience at the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF) Conference that I attended earlier in the month, I now have some cool new to share with you!

I'm now the new Social Media Coordinator and Ask/Accept Anti Bullying Campaign Manager for VBF!!...And I'm really excited! 

Lady week we announced my new positions with VBF on Facebook, and Dr. Linda wrote: 

This is Dr. Linda, President and Founder of the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF). I am so thrilled to announce that Crystal Hodges will be joining VBF as our Social Media Coordinator and as the VBF Ask/Accept Anti-Bullying Campaign Manager.

Crystal currently lives in California and is earning her degree in American Sign Language (ASL). She has become an internet phenomenon with her campaign for acceptance for all people with differences, while sharing her story through speaking opportunities and through her blog. She is a social media whiz and we are so excited that she will be bringing VBF to the forefront of social media.

And hey - here's the thing...Right now we're working on a new Ask/Accept Anti-Bullying video project - and we would LOVE to hear from you!

Check out what we wrote on Facebook, and the video below.  Then, send us YOUR videos!

One of the goals of the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation’s Ask/Accept program is to raise awareness about vascular birthmarks and to combat the bullying and taunting happening to individuals with birthmarks. The phrase Ask/Accept is simple. Ask me about my birthmark (or my child/loved one) and Accept me (or my child/loved one). That being said, we need your help! We're putting together a video - and that's where you come in. We'd LOVE to see a 10-20 second video of you that includes you sharing your name, where you're from, the phrase "Ask/Accept” - and 1-2 additional sentences. Make the video about your own birthmark, or make one about your loved one's birthmark. We are hoping to receive clips from people of all ages from around the world! Check out the attached explanation and example, and send your videos to: crystal@birthmark.org by November 15, 2015.

I can't wait to see your videos!!
