Pink Awareness
Normally, in the 21st century, people will associate pink items for sale as being related somehow to breast cancer. But there are still many people who are not quite sure yet what to make of it and exactly it does mean.

They generally think that if someone is wearing a pink rubber bracelet that it means that person has had or has currently some form of breast cancer. What they may not realize is that the bracelet may also be symbolic of an awareness of the need for breast cancer research. They also may not realize that the person wearing the bracelet may have heavily donated to one of the many breast cancer foundations or societies in existence. The Susan G. Komen foundation is one such organization.

Pink Tool Chests
Pink tool chests are one of those items you can purchase which is symbolic of, and related to, breast cancer awareness. Purchasing a pink tool chest allows for a certain amount of sale proceeds to go to a specified breast cancer research foundation.

It is one of the many pink hardware/tool items available for women to purchase that signifies they either have breast cancer, that they have had breast cancer, or that they know of a friend or relative who has had it or who has died from it. Sears was one of the first companies to sell pink tool chests. Home Depot and Amazon Sell them also. And did you know that there are even rolling pink tool chests?

We are not talking about a flimsy aluminum set of drawers here. We are talking about an eighteen gauge steel, twenty-six inch, five-drawer tool chest designed for serious abuse and use. Just compare it to a Craftsman; you’ll get the idea. In one of these pink tool chests can be any number of pink tools. You can purchase pink wrenches, screwdrivers, drills, and pliers too.

Even Men Use Pink Hardware
Even men purchase pink hardware and tools. Yes it’s true. A man may be supporting his wife’s fight against breast cancer and he himself may purchase a pink hardware item just for that reason. After all, isn’t it said that only real men wear pink? Well, why then can they not utilize pink tool chests, pink tools and other pink hardware items? They can and they do. Men are sensitive too you know. And they also can get breast cancer, which would bring up a whole other subject matter.

Why Do I Have A Pink Tool Box?

pink tool chestWhy Do I Have A Pink Tool Box?

The answer to that may surprise you. My pink tool box is made by the first company to import stainless steel tool boxes to this country – Cala Industries, makers of The Original Pink Box. My tool box is pink, and so are the accessories (or tools as someone of the male orientation might call them).

My “accessories” include everything from hammers and screwdrivers to wrenches and pliers for every occasion. I have pink hex keys and a pink tape measure and a level. They are all pink, every last one. “Why to pink?” you may ask, and I wouldn’t fault you for your curiosity.

It is as a reminder to one and all that the world needs to find a cure for a terrible disease that affects millions and takes millions of lives every year. Breast cancer. I think it is amazing that pink has come to represent so completely the cause of breast cancer research.

It all started with the Susan G. Komen “Race for a Cure” events to draw awareness to the cause of breast cancer research. Their symbol, a pink bow, has come to represent that cause. Anyone and everyone who sees a pink bow connects it with the Komen Foundation and the need to cure breast cancer. But now that pink symbol has carried over to other objects as many corporations have adopted that charity and produce products to sell that are all pink, with the promise that they will donate a certain percentage of profits from the sale of those pink products to the Susan G. Komen For a Cure organization to combat breast cancer. It’s like pink has gone viral! Thus my pink tool box.

But it doesn’t stop there. I also own a very non-macho looking electric driller, and a sander and jig saw that are also all pink! I get a lot of ribbing, but I’m also seeing more and more pink tools turning up, some in the most surprising places! Like the guy we hired to build our new deck … big guy.

Lots of muscle to go along with that pink battery powered screwdriver he was using. Turned out, his mother died of breast cancer. He wanted to do his part for the cause. So if you too would like to do your part, make a contribution by buying your own pink tool box, or some other pink product – for the cause!



 

Using A Pink Tool Chest Supports A Good Cause

Support A Good Cause Use A Pink Tool Chest

pink tool chestIf you see a guy doing handyman work around town and carrying a pink tool chest, that could be my dad. And no, he isn’t gay, nor is he color blind. He is just a guy who feels a tremendous loyalty to an organization that does a lot of good for women.

It is the Susan G. Komen organization who sponsors the “Race for a Cure” charity events to raise money for breast cancer research. More macho guys should be as uninhibited when it comes to their masculinity as my dad. But then, he has a good reason. My mother has breast cancer. Although it is in remission now, we feel very strongly about supporting the cause and raising money for cancer research.

And what better way to do that than by using the pink products that support the Komen foundation. It all started with the pink ribbon, but now many companies market pink products of all kinds and a portion of the purchase price goes to the Susan G. Komen for a cure foundation.

So, Dad has a pink tool chest.

It is fully equipped with high quality tools, including a hammer, mini screwdrivers, level, several different kinds of pliers and wrenches, a measuring tape, screw drivers, drill bits and hex keys. It has just about everything you could need to take care of the basic household jobs. It’s a handy thing to have and everything fits nice and compactly in the durable, soft-sided tote that it comes in. It is very well designed with snug little compartments for each tool or accessory.

In fact, as I said, my dad is a handyman by trade and this pink tool chest goes with him on every job, along with a couple of other handy tools. He always takes along his electric drill (also pink, of course) and jig saw. With just this kit and the electric hand tools, he can accomplish most of the tasks required of him. So if you see anyone, male or female, walking around with a pink tool chest or power tool, don’t be too quick to judge.

They may just be people with a social consciousness who want to do their small part to make life better for others. I think maybe it’s time for me to get myself one of those little pink tool chests. I need to develop some Do-It-Yourself skills … with my own pink tool chest.


 

Handy Tip
power drills pink Grind metal and remove rust. If you don’t own a handheld angle grinder, you can use an attachment that chucks into your cordless drill and allows you to use wheels designed for angle grinders. Alternatively, pick up a “brush bit” to use with your drill to remove rust from iron and steel tools and home items.
