Buying Pink Tools Can Support Breast Cancer Research

Buying Pink Tools Can Support Breast Cancer Research

Five years ago, one of my best friends showed up for the volunteer construction project we were working on with a big grin on her face. “I have a surprise for you,” she said. After insisting I close my eyes for the effect, she placed something in my hand. It was heavy and rectangular with a slightly rough texture.

ladies pink tool kitI opened my eyes to find a pink tool box resting in my hand. Upon opening the pink tool box, I found pliers, screwdriver sets, and other helpful tools –all in pink.

She giggled and said, “Now none of the guys will run off with your tools.” The thought of a full-grown man with a 5 o’clock shadow running around with my pink tools in his hand made me smile. Since then, I’ve learned of an even better motive for buying pink tools: supporting breast cancer research. Take, for example, the website:

By buying pink tools, in kits or separately, you will be donating to Breast Cancer Research. The Little Pink Tools company gives 10% of all sales to the Breast Cancer Research cause. An additional benefit is that all tools come with a lifetime guarantee.

That’s not a bad deal—buy beautiful, guaranteed tools and support a great cause! Another company promoting the same cause is pink Tomboy Tools, who donates $1 from selected products and 5% of profits from pink hand tools to charitable organizations including animal shelters and breast cancer research. Though tomboy tools are not as focused in its donations to breast cancer (as it divides it among other charitable organizations), it is still nice to know that purchasing a tool you need will help a woman or animal in need. Maybe you feel you don’t use tools very often, so why support the sale of a pink tool?

Though you may not be a professional construction worker or ceramic tile layer, would it be nice to have a cordless drill on hand to hand a picture in your home without borrowing from the neighbor? And, like it or not, we all have had to use a screwdriver or pliers at some point in our life (even if we hate the thought of tools).

It can give a sense of satisfaction to have a handy toolkit around the home or in the automobile. So, if you are thinking of making such a purchase, perhaps you can buy a pink tool box or pink toolkit and support a worthy cause at the same time!


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.

Support Breast Cancer Research You Bet With A Pink Tool Set

There are many ways for you to help support breast cancer research; many do not require you to do anything any different than you normally would. Certainly one way to support breast cancer research is to donate directly to a known breast cancer research charity. Another way is to support any breast cancer awareness events in your community.

One such event that takes place in many communities is the Walk for Women event.

pink tool setOne way that you may not be familiar with is to purchase products that support breast cancer research. From pink potting mix to a pink tool set. These products are usually pink in nature, to reflect their support for breast cancer research. Some products, though, will not be pink. These products will be designated by some notation on their packaging to let you know that they are supporting the cause of breast cancer research.

One area that has seen an influx of hot pink items that support breast cancer research is the hardware department in your local power tools store. It is now possible to find a variety of tools that are hot pink or designated with the pink ribbon to show that they support breast cancer research. Indeed, if you are a female, why not purchase the hot pink tool set to help support breast cancer research.

And just because you might be a male, does not mean that you can not buy the item for yourself. These items will be found in the hardware section right alongside the traditional tools that are normally red, blue yellow or black. If you are buying tools for a gift, please consider a hot pink tool set that will help support breast cancer research. Breast cancer does not just affect women; men can be diagnosed as well.

Their diagnosis is not expected, but just as serious. The important thing to remember is that you can help support the research by purchasing items that you were already going to buy. This is perhaps the easiest way to help donate to breast cancer research.

The hardest thing that you have to do is look for the packaging that designates the item will give to breast cancer research. If you know of any person, male or female, that has been affected by breast cancer, then you certainly know the hardships that they faced while receiving treatment.

This treatment is not simple and current research is needed to try to help those that have received the diagnosis of breast cancer. Please try to help in any way possible, even by buying a hot pink tool set.

Pink Tool Kits what is in them?

What is in a Pink Tool Kit?

Gone are the days when dull colors such as black and grey dominated the exterior of tool kits. Nowadays, as manufacturers open their doors to tap into the women’s market, tools are given a more feminine packaging. These tools are now collectively contained in an attractive pink tool kit or other colorful designs, and to many women, this change is empowering.

But with this color change, one cannot help but ask. Did the manufacturers also instituted changes related to the tools’ functions for the purpose of accommodating feminine characteristics (i.e., a “pink” hammer is smaller than the usual piece found in a men’s kit)? Apparently not. As a matter of fact, these pink tool kits are created from the same manufacturing line, so they still comply with the same quality and safety standards. That said, everyone — men, women, boys, and girls — can use them.

pink tool kitWhat is inside a pink tool set?

Just like what you see in a typical men’s tool kit, you can see a wide array of tools once you open a pink tool chest. The number of tools vary depending on the price. In general, the more tool pieces the pink tool kit contains, the pricier it gets.

Some sets include 39, 105, and 135 pieces of tools, and they are either organized neatly in a fold-able, cushioned box, or stacked using metal compartments. Below is a list of the tools that can be included in a pink tool chest. – 12-foot tape measure – claw hammer – joint pliers – hex keys – scissors – ratcheting bit driver – bits (1/8-inch, 3/16-inch…) – utility knife – precision screwdrivers – fastener set – electrical tape – long nose pliers – adjustable wrench – extra blades When choosing which product to buy, remember to check how other consumers have rated the brand of your choice.

Because not all experiences and feedback can apply to you, it is best that you use your good judgment when reading these ratings. You might also want to choose the brands whose existence is driven by a cause. Some brands selling pink tool kits, for instance, support efforts inclined toward breast cancer awareness. One of these brands is Apollo Precision Tools.

Apollo is also one of the top-rated names in women’s tool kits because not only does it create pink tool kits with a refreshing, eye-catching color, but it can also compete with other well-known brands in the quality aspect. One of Apollo’s bestselling tools is the DT9706P 39-Piece tool set, which has gained an average high rating of 4.4 points out of a perfect score of 5.0.
