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.
