They’re the best drills you could buy, and I’ll tell you why. Pink has become the universal symbol of a charity called Susan A. Komen “For a Cure,” which has dedicated itself to seeking a cure for breast cancer. You’ve probably seen the little pink bows around, especially certain times of the year. They are a reminder of the need to keep fighting for this cause.

There are many things you can do to help, from doing a charity walk (or run) for a cure, to donating money, to buying a pink cordless drill from your local hardware store.

A portion of the money you pay for that drill will be donated to the Susan A. Komen “For A Cure” Foundation. Easy peasy. AND you have got yourself a very high quality, durable cordless drill to boot! AND a great conversation piece, because who is going to see you using it and not ask you, “Hey, why is your power drill pink?” (I get that all the time.) But that’s a good thing for several reasons – one of which is it gives you a chance to explain the Susan A. Komen “For a Cure” organization and all the good things they’ve done to help fight breast cancer.

You could mention, for instance, that they have raised and donated nearly TWO BILLION DOLLARS worldwide (in some 50 countries) for the cause of curing breast cancer. You could explain that pink drills and tool kits and gardening tools have all been instrumental in raising that $2,000,000,000. You could even show them what a high-quality piece of equipment your drill is – a real MAN’S tool if you will.

Maybe, if you explain all this, they too will want a pink cordless drill to do their part in saving lives. It’s a good cause and deserves all the support it can get. So, now you know about pink things. More often than not, if it’s on the store shelf, and it’s pink, it is likely connected with the Susan A. Komen “For a Cure.” So, buy it.

Buy it all. Fill your home with pink friendly stuff. But especially fill your tool shed with pink tools of every kind – like that pink cordless drill I mentioned. The best drill you could buy.



 

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!

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!



 

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.
