I am man enough to step up and paint my finger nail blue in honor of the 1 in 5 kids who are abused before the age of 18.
In addition, I have signed up for this pledge campaign to keep my nails blue for the whole month of April.
My goal is to raise $150 by the end of month which is $5/day. Although....... there is a "Man Of The Year" trophy for raising the most $$$.
Seriously though, this is a cause that matters. and the shocking reality is that 20% of kids are abused by the age of 18 and it is generally by the people who are supposed to be keeping them safe!
Come on! We can do better than that, and we NEED to be doing more for them and preventing it from happening in the first place!!!
Paint your nail, donate, get involved in another capacity but don't ignore it.
