Here’s Why Chris Hemsworth and Zac Efron Are Painting Their Nails
If you are a regular celebrity social media follower than you must have noticed a special thing. From Zac Efron To Chris Hemsworth and to James Marsden they all are painting their nails. But why is it so. Is it a fashion statement or something else? Yes we know that painting nails is a fashion in men too, but this is. Something is cooking.
Actually these actors are joining a campaign called Polished Man which raises awareness about physical and sexual violence against children. The challenge is to paint a nail, post a photograph on social media, and donate to the cause to help raise awareness for the one in five children worldwide who will be the victims of sexual violence in their lifetime.
The campaign is sponsored by YGAP (Y-Generation Against Poverty), an Australian charity that aims to empower local entrepreneurs to help fight poverty. Donations will be directed toward trauma recovery and prevention programs for children, and will also be channelled into organizations like the Australian Childhood Foundation and The New York Center For Children. The campaign has generated over $5,13,000 in donations so far.
According to the World Health Organization, one if five children—some 150 millions girls and 73 million boys—have experienced sexual or physical violence before reaching the age of 18.
Here are some of the celebrities with polished nails.
