Get A Pink Power Drill And Do Your Part For A Cure

Doing Your Part For A Cure Buy A Pink Power Drill

pink power drillI recently bought my place. It has a lot of potential, but it is a fixer-upper, by design. I’m pretty handy with tools. My dad made sure of that.

I have worked with him for as long as I can remember, and I know my way around a tool kit.

So as soon as I moved in, I went tool shopping. I have some tools, but a lot of times I just used my dad’s, so I needed a few things, particularly an electric drill.

But when I came home with a pink power drill, you would not believe the uproar!

My mom says I have unwittingly set the women’s movement back half a century. My sister said I was turning into a living, breathing Barbie Doll. My dad said, “Pink? Are you kidding me? Power drills aren’t supposed to be pink!”

Family Portrait (in the elevator)My family isn’t anything if not opinionated. But I am also opinionated, and I felt I had excellent reasons for opting for a pink power drill … Humanitarian reasons, in fact. I wonder how many out there who are gnashing their teeth over the idea of pink power drills even realize there is a deliberate strategy behind the idea.

Pink, as in pink ribbons, has come to be associated with the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure charity seeking a cure for breast cancer – a disease that primarily affects women. So when you see a pink power drill or other pink power tools, remember, it’s not as girlie as you would think … except in a good way, because a portion of the cost of these pink tools is being donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

So, you get a high quality (a “guy quality” if you need to think of it that way) pink power drill to use for all your drilling needs, and a charity receives more money for its very worthy cause. I’ve kept my drill pretty busy since moving into my new house. I used it to put my bed together, to hang some wall shelves, to hand curtain rods and make a few repairs to my porch.

Every time I use it, I think about how much has been accomplished by the Susan G. Komen for a Cure organization, and I feel pretty good about myself. In fact, it makes me want to go out and find myself some more pink tools!
