Nails cam­paign ham­mers home hor­rors of vi­o­lence against kids

Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES - By KIM­BER­LEY PRICE

BRUCE Hock­ing Mo­tors has joined the Pol­ished Man cam­paign, which runs through­out the month of Oc­to­ber.

With a tar­get to raise $200, the team is well on its way, af­ter col­lect­ing $54 on the first day.

Pol­ished Man is a fundrais­ing cam­paign chal­leng­ing men (and women) to end vi­o­lence against chil­dren. By paint­ing one finger­nail, par­tic­i­pants can more vis­ually un­der­stand the sta­tis­tics sur­round­ing vi­o­lence against chil­dren. Glob­ally, one child dies every five min­utes as a re­sult of vi­o­lence.

The money raised by par­tic­i­pants of the Pol­ished Man goes to­wards trauma re­cov­ery and trauma pre­ven­tion pro­grams run by a num­ber of char­i­ties in­clud­ing YGAP, World Vi­sion, Ha­gar In­ter­na­tional, The New York Cen­tre for Chil­dren and the Aus­tralian Child­hood Foun­da­tion.

Bruce Hock­ing Mo­tors is hop­ing you can spare some change for such a wor­thy cause by do­nat­ing through my.pol­ished­man.com/bruce-hock­ing­mo­tors-p-l. The team will also paint your nail for a gold coin do­na­tion.
