Nail Painting Challenge Raises $2M for Charity

by NLS Staff | December 29, 2016

A terminally ill Dutch boy has dared people all over the world to paint their nails for a cause. Diagnosed with brain cancer in May, Tijn Kolsteren has raised over $2.1 million with his nail painting challenge, which will be donated to the Red Cross as apart of an annual campaign by Serious Request 3FM. Specifically, the philanthropic 6-year-old hopes the money will help to fight pneumonia among children. The donation page reads: "Most of the poor kids infected with pneumonia don’t even live to be 5 years old. That is why we’re standing up to fight." Famous participants of the nail painting challenge include DJ Armin van Buuren and Dutch politican Geert Wilders.

Participants are encouraged to paint their nails, make a donation, and then share on social media, challenging three friends to do the same.
