Hagar International is a non-profit which runs social service programs in Cambodia, and Vietnam, with the mission to protect the most vulnerable human trafficking victims while aiding in their recovery.
This small act impacted Costello big time. Thus it spawned his movement “to paint one nail to represent the one in five children that suffer physical and sexual violence at the hands of men.”
He began The Polished Man campaign. This is meant to draw the much needed attention to children all around the world who are victims of sexual abuse. One finger nail is painted and left that way for a week. This is meant to spread the word and start creating conversations about violence against children around the world. More donations to support programs that provide resources and help child victims can come about with this simple awareness technique.
It’s only a couple of years old now, but The Polished Man campaign has attracted thousands of people to it’s cause and even celebrities such as Mario Batali and Hugh Jackman have been supporting it. Check out this video of Costello’s story and how you can start participating in this campaign.
