Take the Pledge to Polish Off Child Abuse
Are you ready to take a stand against child abuse and show that it is not acceptable, anywhere or anytime?
Join us in our first ever Peer-To-Peer fundraising pledge!
Pledge? MANicures? Help me understand how they relate!
Thank you for asking! We are so happy to explain. MANicure MovementSM participants take the bold step in the month of April to paint one finger blue, which represents the one in five children who will be victims of abuse by the time they reach 18.Through our new peer-to-peer pledge campaign, participants commit to keep their “prevention blue” nail polish on for one day for every five dollars raised.
Here’s a chance for your friends and family to embarrass you for a good cause! $10 raised equates to 2 days; $100 would be 20 days; and $150 would be the entire month of April. That’s a whole month of sparking conversations and helping kids.
What does it mean to pledge?
This pledge is about standing behind our kids and standing up to child abuse. Participants will register online and fund-raise one dollar at a time (or more!) to hit a goal that they set for themselves. They can post their link on social media, challenge their friends, complete tasks for donations, or anything else they can think of to raise money for this worthy cause.
Who can participate?
Anyone and everyone! M en and women; young and old; near or far. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate in this pledge campaign.
How can I sign up?
If you are attending a kickoff event, one of the members of the Embrace Families team will help you get registered. If not, you would go to MANicureMovement.com, click on “Polish Off Child Abuse – Take the Pledge,” and click on “Click Here to Join.” Just follow the instructions on the following pages to personalize your page and send the link out to the world.
Can I form a team?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it! If you are a member of a club, organization, business, etc. and would like all of your colleagues to participate with you, you can create a team and all fundraise together. Or you can create some friendly competition by challenging your colleagues and competitors to set up their own pledge campaign to see who can raise the most in the drive to polish off child abuse.
But wait. There's more.
To kick off this inaugural event, we are also announcing our MAN-of-the-Year competition. We know that you will be fundraising hard all through April and we want to reward the MAN (or WoMAN) who raises the most money with the title of MAN-of-the-Year. More details coming soon. This is part of the pledge campaign that you do NOT want to miss… so feel free to start fundraising today!
