Buying Pink Tools Can Support Breast Cancer Research

Buying Pink Tools Can Support Breast Cancer Research

Five years ago, one of my best friends showed up for the volunteer construction project we were working on with a big grin on her face. “I have a surprise for you,” she said. After insisting I close my eyes for the effect, she placed something in my hand. It was heavy and rectangular with a slightly rough texture.

She giggled and said, “Now none of the guys will run off with your tools.” The thought of a full-grown man with a 5 o’clock shadow running around with my pink tools in his hand made me smile. Since then, I’ve learned of an even better motive for buying pink tools: supporting breast cancer research. Take, for example, the website: www.littlepinktools.com/.

By buying pink tools, in kits or separately, you will be donating to Breast Cancer Research. The Little Pink Tools company gives 10% of all sales to the Breast Cancer Research cause. An additional benefit is that all tools come with a lifetime guarantee.

That’s not a bad deal—buy beautiful, guaranteed tools and support a great cause! Another company promoting the same cause is pink Tomboy Tools, who donates $1 from selected products and 5% of profits from pink hand tools to charitable organizations including animal shelters and breast cancer research. Though tomboy tools are not as focused in its donations to breast cancer (as it divides it among other charitable organizations), it is still nice to know that purchasing a tool you need will help a woman or animal in need. Maybe you feel you don’t use tools very often, so why support the sale of a pink tool?

Though you may not be a professional construction worker or ceramic tile layer, would it be nice to have a cordless drill on hand to hand a picture in your home without borrowing from the neighbor? And, like it or not, we all have had to use a screwdriver or pliers at some point in our life (even if we hate the thought of tools).

It can give a sense of satisfaction to have a handy toolkit around the home or in the automobile. So, if you are thinking of making such a purchase, perhaps you can buy a pink tool box or pink toolkit and support a worthy cause at the same time!
