Have you noticed that recently on the Internet you can increasingly see men with one painted fingernail.
At first, you might think that this is another crazy trend. But in fact, everything is much deeper than it might seem at first glance.
It all started when Australian activist Elliot Costello, during his mission in Cambodia, met a little girl, Theo, who was physically abused. It turned out that the girl was not indifferent to manicure, and as soon as the varnish fell into her hands, she asked her new acquaintance to practice on his hand.
Elliot agreed and since then has constantly inked one finger in memory of this meeting.
After returning home, the man, together with his colleagues from the YGAP organization, launched a flash mob on social networks #PolishedMan. Men are encouraged to scratch one nail on their hand and post the picture on the Internet.
Such a manicure reflects the terrible statistics of “1 in 5” - every fifth child in the world is subjected to domestic violence.
Costello's action found a great response on the Internet, and such Hollywood stars as Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth joined it.
