In 2017 Get Out Blog – which is based in Kuwait and founded by Nour Alkawass supported Spot the Dot (as a Media Partner) during their exhibition and mural painting in Vienna, Austria. (video link) because they felt drawn to the fun and urban approach to reach out to young people about a rather heavy topic. In 2018 Not Necessarily Famous brought Marije Kruis, the founder of Spot the Dot, to Kuwait to tell her story and give a talk on her experiences with skin cancer as well as the story of Spot the Dot foundation.
