barry zweibel is a polished manHere’s a fun little share with a very serious message beneath it

I’m a Polished Man.

That means, for the month of October, I’m paintingd one of my fingernails to raise raising awareness for the one in five children affected by physical and/or sexual violence before the age of 18.

The idea is that people will notice, ask about it, and enable a conversation about better protecting society’s most vulnerable to the abuses of adults – kids.

Did you know that 90% of all sexual violence against children is perpetrated by men?

Did you know that 150 million girls and 73 million boys under 18 have experienced sexual violence?

I didn’t.

Now while The Polished Man is designed to be a fundraising event, I’m not asking you for a donation. I just want you – as adult men and women – to know these shocking statistics. Then, whatever you feel you need to do (or not do) next is fine by me.

  • But fellas, should you want to paint a fingernail of your own in support of the cause, excellent! (Send me a photo!)
  • And, ladies, should you want to encourage a guy you know to support the cause, that’d be great, too! (And also send me a photo!)
  • Hey, if you just want to mock my masculinity, have at it! (Just be creative about it!)
  • And should you want to support my campaign, here’s the link to my donations page:

If you can help me spread the word, though – in person, by phone, on Facebook, LinkedIn, via Tweets, Instagram (hashtag #polishedman)…or with a small donation – please KNOW I’ll appreciate it, greatly.

Andthank you for treating your kids with the respect they deserve.
