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.

The Best Hot Pink Tool Sets On The Market

hot pink tool setI recently received a hot pink tool set as a birthday present. When I first received this set of tools, I thought they were inferior and would not do everything that I needed them to do. However, I hate to return gifts, so I decided to try to use them. I figured even if they wouldn’t do everything I would need them to do, I could still use them for easy projects around the house. I used my hot pink tool set the first time when I decided to hang a few pictures in my house.

I opened the tool bag and pulled out the tape measure, bubble level and a hammer. These tools would be necessary for the job. I carefully measured a large mirror that would be hung behind my couch to find how far apart the brackets were. After I had made my measurements and calculated the distance from the ceiling, it was time to hammer the nails in.

I hammered the first nail into place and took a straight edge to help me find where my next mark should be.

Once I found my next mark, I used the bubble level to ensure that the two nails were level. After hanging the mirror, I knew I had a tool set anyone would be proud to own. The hammer was a perfect size and heavy enough to do the job without being so heavy that it was tiresome to use.

As a bonus, the tool set was a beautiful shade of hot pink. Now I have a tool set that I am proud to say is my own. Each tool in the set fits perfectly in my hand and performs beautifully no matter the size or difficulty of the project.

The best set of tools for ladies is both functional and stylish. You want a set of tools that offers you a way to express your individuality without sacrificing quality. Whether you need a wrench to tighten a loose bolt or a hammer to hang a picture, you will find what you need in this fantastic hot pink tool set. And by buying one, you will help support research into breast cancer.



 

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!
