Spyderco is very proud to support Guardians of the Ribbon/Pink Heals Tour and the ""Cares Enough to Wear Pink"" programs by donating a portion of the sales of our pink-handled knives. Founded in 2007 by retired firefighter Dave Graybill, this amazing charity focuses on providing direct care to women battling all forms of cancer. The Pink Heals Movement, best known for its fleet of pink fire trucks and police cars, tours the U.S. visiting women and children cancer patients, determining their most critical needs, and coordinating local resources to meet those needs. Pink Heals also recruits the support of tax-based services and community leaders to ensure continued support of women battling cancer by the donations staying local to the community it was raised in. Most importantly, Pink Heals applies 100% of all the donations they receive to direct care for the women it serves, providing immediate, tangible support to those who need it most. All the charitys operating expenses are paid for by sales of pink shirts bearing their organizational logo. These shirts are also the foundation of the ""Cares Enough to Wear Pink"" campaigna national campaign intended to increase the focus on women as one of the worlds most precious resources.
