According to the YGAP website, a polished man is someone who shows support for women and children and does good work helping end violence in the world.
“YGAP’s Polished Man campaign encourages everyone to take a stand and actively commit to helping end violence against women and children by painting one nail for the month of October. The funds we raise support trauma prevention and recovery programs in Australia and around the world that aim to stop violence before it can occur, as well as help survivors on their road to recovery. Sign up today, paint a nail, start a conversation and raise funds to help end violence against women and children.”
As of December 2022, the Polished Man campaign has been running for eight years straight. As of the latest numbers, the YGAP’s Polished Man campaign has helped raise more than $7.6 million since its inception.
Their website boasts, “We have had over 100,000 people from more than 100 countries get behind this movement, funding both trauma prevention and trauma recovery services in Australia and around the world.”
The 2021 campaign report from YGAP reported that their organization is “so proud to stand as a beneficiary partner of Polished Man in the effort to end violence against children. Our contribution is the prevention of violence through working to ensure economic security and stability for people around the world. YGAP supports small impact businesses here in Australia and overseas that are reducing economic and social inequality around the world.”
