Men are Painting Their Nails for a Good Cause

Chris Hemsworth is among the famous faces doing his bit to end violence against children.

You might notice your favourite (second favourite?) Hemsworth brother sporting some nail polish this month, and the reason is adorably noble.

Chris and a horde of other celebs have signed up to the Polished Man campaign to end violence against children.

Tragically, one in five children fall victim to physical or sexual violence before the age of 18.

The Polished Man campaign, an initiative by not-for-profit YGAP, encourages men to sign up and paint one of their fingernails for the month of October. Why? Because "that nail leads to a conversation. That conversation inspires a donation. That donation allows for prevention and protection."


Chris Hemsworth, Michael Klim, former Bachie Sam Wood, comedian Tommy Little, and actor Gyton Grantley are among the celebrity gentlemen putting their name to the cause.

The campaign asks men to take part as 90 per cent of violence against children is perpetrated by men. 

By getting a manicure and donating to the cause, they're hoping men will join the conversation of preventing such horrors.

So far, the campaign has raised over $320,000.
