Polished Man movement challenge- India TV

Some of Hollywood's leading stars like Zac Efron, Chris Hemsworth, and his brother Liam are nailing it with the latest Internet challenge. 

The challenge is to paint a nail and post a photograph on social media. By doing this they are donating for the cause to help raise awareness about physical and sexual violence against children.

Hollywood celebrities are painting a fingernail to join this Polished Man movement and raise awareness for the one in five children worldwide who will be the victims of sexual violence in their lifetime.

Gabriel Macht, the lead actor of hit TV series Suits, and X-Men fame James Marsden are others who have joined the campaign. 

The idea was given by Elliot Costello, Chief Executive Officer of Australian non-profit organisation, Youth Generation Against Poverty. 

When Costello met a young Cambodian girl who had been abused during her time in an orphanage, he decided to encourage celebrities to paint a single fingernail to raise awareness and funds worldwide.

The meeting with the girl left a strong impact on Costello and till date the campaign has generated over $5,13,000 in donations

This movement was launched in 2014 and is not only restricted to men, even women can come forward and participate and contribute to such a noble cause. But the reason why men are more encouraged for this challenge is because statistics show 90% of all sexual assaults against children are carried out by men.

Check out the pics uploaded on social media by some of the men who have attempted the challenge.
