Pink Tool Belts: Here’s To Good Health

Pink Tool Belts: Heres To Good Health

I am a breast cancer survivor. I am also really into volunteering. One of my favorite causes is Habitat for Humanity. What better way to give to a charitable cause than to get in there and physically apply your elbow grease? I mean, it is a great and generous thing to make a monetary donation if you can, but I cannot describe the joy that comes from pouring your heart and soul into a project and seeing the results in the relief, joy and gratitude shown on the faces of the recipients.

Whenever I am working on one of these projects with my friends for Habitat for Humanity we bring our tools along, conveniently hanging on our pink tool belts. Yes, you heard me right. I said pink. I figure, why not kill two causes with one stone. As I said previously, I am a cancer survivor … breast cancer, to be more precise.

They are all proud to wear them with me as I have mostly bought each one their bright pink tool belt. pink tool beltsWhat does that have to do with pink tool belts? Well, perhaps you have heard of the Susan G. Komen For a Cure organization. They’re the sponsors of the annual Komen “Race for a Cure” event that is now held nationwide.

It is a very active fundraising event that focuses on finding a cure for breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen foundation is the one that started those little pink bows you see people wearing as a reminder not to forget the need for contributions to this cause. Now, though, the pink theme has gone viral, so to speak, and incorporates many products … all pink … into this brand.

Pink is everywhere! It even has shown up in power tools … and in my aforementioned pink tool belt. The companies who make and sell these pink products have pledged to donate a percentage of their sales of these items to the Susan G. Komen For A Cure charity to support breast cancer research. It is a superb idea and has taken off!

It has gotten to the point now where the color pink has come to be associated not just with little girls, but with breast cancer research. So when you see tradespeople or handymen or handywomen wearing or using a pink electric drill or screwdriver or sander, or electric mixer or other kitchen appliance, or t-shirts … the list goes on and on, think of the Susan G. Komen foundation and make a contribution to the cause of eliminating breast cancer.
