My friend and teammate M found this at Canadian Tire this weekend and posted it on my FB wall.
Now, I did the research: they donate 1$ for each tool-belt or bucket sold, which on an 18$ tool-belt is not too bad, but again, I must ask:
- how many pink tool-belts do you think they sell, so how much money are they donating? 1000? 2500?
- how insulting and condescending is it to sell a pink tool-belt in the first place? I own A LOT of tools, none of them are pink!
- If they really want to donate, couldn’t they just say ‘Proud supporter of the Canadian Breast Cancer Fondation’ on the tag and donate for ALL the tool-belts, including the manly ones? (PS, men get breast cancer too…. #shocker )
PS: I once tried to explain Canadian Tire to a foreigner: Well, it’s an auto-parts store that obviously sells tires. But also toasters and christmas trees and hockey equipment, you know, all things Canadian. And they give you Canadian Tire money back…..
