As many of you know, I participated in the Polished Man project – an effort to raise awareness about violence against children. This is an update on how the effort went.
- more than 60,000 men participated, worldwide
- almost $1,000,000 was raised
All funds raised through Polished Man are channeled into trauma recovery and trauma prevention programs for children who have suffered or are at risk of suffering violence globally. These include YGAP impact entrepreneurs running ventures that reduce violence against children or provide emergency relief to those that have fallen victims to physical and/or sexual violence. Funds are also channeled into some incredible work being carried out by the Australian Childhood Foundation, Hagar International, the New York Centre for Children and World Vision.
To those that participated directly, or indirectly – or offered your support to me, personally – thank you.
