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.

Pink Tools for Women, and Men To

Pink Tools for Women, and Men As Well

pink cordless drillThere are many different options when buying tools. Even if you go to the hardware store to buy a hammer, there will be many different styles from which you can choose. Once you narrow down the style, you are still not done yet. Then you must choose the material your new tool is to be made out of.

Now you must choose the primary color for your tool. Gone are the days of yesteryear when the choices were black, blue or wooden. Now possible color choices include different shades of these colors, different materials and even new colors. You will probably have to choose between having wooden handles or aluminum handles.

When that is done is when you start picking colors. Some people may not care about the colors of their tools, while others will be very concerned about having a matching set of tools. If your mind is not made up already, or if these are the first tools you are purchasing, then pink tools are a very good option.

Pink tools for women only is no longer the case. Men can use them as well, because a tool is a tool. Pink tools usually are supporting breast cancer research. You can be sure by looking on the label or item box.

If you are going to be purchasing the tool anyways, why not support a very worthy cause. Chances are it will not matter if you are in a family owned hardware store or a big box store, there will be a pink tool section.

Tools are no longer just for men, but pink tools do not have to be for women only. Probably the only items you will not find a pink choice for will be the power tools. These tools are usually mostly black, sometimes they will have an accent color. The demand for these tools to be offered in pink has not gotten great enough, yet.

As more and more women begin to work with their hands more and more, pink tools will become more prevalent in the stores. The fact that these pink tools for women usually support breast cancer research is an added bonus.

Be sure to look for the pink ribbon or the designation of breast cancer research supporter before you buy. Tools are meant to last a long time with proper care so your support will be known for a long time without you even having to say a word.

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!
