We Did It! 1.65m Raised For Childhood!

I'M EXTREMELY excited to share that the 2017 Polished Man Campaign generated a whopping $1,650,540.06 from your generous donations! The campaign, now in it's fourth year, launched in 2014 from an idea; that NO CHILD, anywhere in the world, should suffer from violence. It asks men - and for the first time in 2017, women - to paint a nail and take a stand.
How It Works? A single polished nail sparks a conversation about Ending Violence Against Children, creating greater awareness and hopefully a monetary donation!  

As a mother, the health and wellbeing of my children is my number 1 priority. The thought of not being able to provide for them or protect them from harm is my worst fear. I was deeply disturbed to learn that 1 child dies every 5 minutes as a result of violence and that a a high proportion of cases are of a sexual nature - 90% of which carried out by males.
Just take a minute to absorb those statistic.

When David and I were asked to be Ambassadors for the 2017 Polished Man Campaign, we didn't hesitate in our response. YES! 
These kids may not have a voice, but we do, and we are determined to use it to make the world a safer place and ensure every child experiences a childhood free from violence.
