Come together to Polish Off Child Abuse with
The MANicure MovementSM
What is MANicure MovementSM?
The MANicure MovementSM, which started right here in Central Florida, is a grassroots effort designed to raise awareness of child abuse as a national health crisis, and to bring community leaders together in the fight to eradicate the grim statistic that one in five children will suffer abuse before the age of 18. As we challenge men (and women) to boldly show their support for children by wearing a blue polished fingernail, we inspire conversation and prompt action to support vulnerable children and their families.
Tell me more about the campaign!
The campaign runs throughout the month of April – which is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. It will be highlighted by kick-off events in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties; widespread involvement of community leaders and first responders; ongoing corporate champion MANicure events; and a robust social media campaign.
Okay, I'm in. What can I do?
There are many ways to participate. A few appear below, but explore this website to learn how we can work together to Polish Off Child Abuse, one MAN at a time.
These are all wonderful, but I want to do more. How can I help?
We're so glad you asked! For the first time, we are launching a Peer-To-Peer Fundraising campaign. Throughoutthe month of April, you are encouraged to use your painted nail to raise money to help prevent Child Abuse and build awareness. We make this easy and fun at the same time.
One fingernail painted blue starts…
One conversation that moves us…
One step closer to ending the tragic reality that…
One in five children will suffer abuse before the
age of 18.
