The YGAP website defines a Polished Man as someone who supports women and children and actively works towards putting an end to violence in society.

“The Polished Man campaign by YGAP encourages everyone to take a stand and actively commit to ending violence against women and children by painting one nail throughout the month of October. The funds we raise support trauma prevention and recovery programs in Australia and around the world, aiming to stop violence before it occurs and aid survivors on their journey to healing. Join us today, paint a nail, start a conversation, and raise funds to help put an end to violence against women and children.”

As of December 2022, the Polished Man campaign has successfully run for eight consecutive years. In the latest update, the YGAP’s Polished Man campaign has raised more than $7.6 million since its inception.

Their website proudly proclaims, “We’ve had over 100,000 individuals from over 100 countries become a part of this movement, providing funding for both trauma prevention and recovery services in Australia and around the globe.”

According to the 2021 campaign report from YGAP, “We are incredibly proud to stand as a beneficiary partner of Polished Man in the fight to end violence against children. Our contribution lies in violence prevention through our work to ensure economic security and stability for people worldwide. YGAP supports small businesses that make a positive impact, both here in Australia and overseas, in reducing economic and social inequality globally.”

So, the next time you encounter a man with a painted nail, know that he is supporting a cause that truly matters.
