Polished Man is a campaign by YGAP to end violence against children. YGAP believes in a world where no child suffers from violence. Because it shouldn't hurt to be a child, and we all have the power to change this.
But the reality right now is very different. One child dies every five minutes as a result of violence. That's one too many.
YGAP's Polished Man campaign encourages men to take a stand and actively commit to ending violence against children by painting a nail for the month of October. By representing this harrowing statistic, they raise a conversation as well as awareness and funds to ensure no child suffers from violence.
Funds raised for Polished Man are channeled into trauma prevention and trauma recovery programs for children who are at risk of or have suffered violence.
