Painted nails for a good cause at Arcare Pimpama

Would you paint your nails for a good cause? Well, that is exactly what Melvin and Robert are doing at Arcare Pimpama.

They have joined in the Polished Man movement to raise awareness about physical and sexual violence against children.

Joining a list of men from all over the world, Melvin and Robert are two of many who hope to spark a conversation or two about violence against children.

This cause also has a number of famous faces lending their support, such as Aussies’ Chris Hemsworth and champion swimmer Michael Klim, along with Hollywood star Zac Efron.

Being a part of Polished Man is a unique and meaningful way to show support and raise money for the cause.

With many children facing all kinds of violence, the clients at Arcare Pimpama only felt it was right for them to do their part.

‘I’ve never had my nails painted before, but I’ll do it for the kids,’ Melvin commented as he was getting his nails painted black.
