Who Are We?
We put our volunteerism and our labor of love to work for the people in your community. According to our mission the money raised by your community efforts, be it individuals, public servants, or local businesses, should stay local - in your community, county or state. Pink Heals is health care support at a grass roots level and visionary leaders across the country are implementing Pink Heals at a rapid pace.
Pink Heals is a program that brings a community together based on the love of women and their families. It is a program that provides home visits to show individuals that they are loved, cherished and important to others. Pink Heals brings back the human element by celebrating people, not causes.

How It Works
The Pink Heals National Tour operates by the sale of merchandise, gifts and in kind donations to maintain our vehicles, buy gas and travel across the country to visit individuals and share the program. Tour drivers volunteer up to 21 days at a time to drive pink fire trucks and police cars across America and deliver the Pink Heals Program to communities. Our local chapters use pink fire trucks and police cars as a visual reminder that people matter.
How Pink Heals Works
The National Tour: Men and women commit up to 21 days away from their families to volunteer to drive the Pink Heals Initiative across America in our pink vehicles. The Pink Heals Tour can last as long as ten months, visiting hundreds of communities, and driving thousands of miles. They bring our program to cities and towns across the country and inspire citizens, businesses and our political leadership to start putting people first and to keep fund raising dollars local! This selfless effort by the individuals who drive these vehicles along with the thousands of people who have signed the trucks and cars, are the inspiration for your City to start this program! This is not just about members of Public Safety, this is about doing what is right for the very people that, as fire fighters and public servants, we are supposed to serve. Pink Heals supports local fund raising events and provides home visits upon request to support those in need. Pink Heals is based on LOVE and three fundamental principles:
First: To provide visionary leaders and the general public with a program that maintains fund raising dollars locally. Pink Heals brings a community together out of Love, not on behalf of a cause or a ribbon, but on behalf of People! Pink Heals uses the color PINK to represent women and their families, NOT a specific disease. This is NOT about breast cancer, but about ALL illnesses and needs within a community that can be cured or supported by keeping fund raising money within the community, county or state!
Second: To give our elected leaders and local businesses the ability to align with an initiative that benefits the community WITHOUT aligning with a single cause, a specific disease or charity. This initiative is successful because it redirects the money raised in a community right back to the very people that raised it!
Third: Above all else Pink Heals strives to acknowledge the HUMAN element of having an illness or other type of adversity. Pink Heals makes home visits which provides moral support to individuals and their families.
Inherent leaders and businesses are embracing this initiative. The program doesn’t align a leader or a business with one specific entity- it's more personal than that. This program aligns them with the women in their community, their fire fighters, their police department, their tax based groups and their constituents. Leaders support local fund raising through Pink Heals and their constituents support their leader with votes. Businesses support their patrons and their patrons choose that business for their goods and services. It’s simple.
How does the Pink Heals Movement affect Fund Raising by Tax Based Organizations and Local Businesses?
We give our “Art/Brand” to all tax based organizations like fire departments, police departments, school districts or any other organization within each State that exists through your hard earned tax dollars. By adopting our Pink Heals program those organizations are able to direct their fund raising efforts back to the people that pay their taxes, starting with our women. When 100% of the money raised by these organizations stays local it creates monies for immediate care! Local businesses can do the same, fund raising for the people who buy their goods and services and keeping support local.
To provide Visionary Leaders and Local Businesses with a program that supports people, not causes, through home visits and maintains fundraising dollars locally in support of women and their families!
“The Pink Heals Tour is about our community, our family, our neighbors, and our leaders and how it will help bring us back together to focus on one another."
A History Of Giving Back
Our organization started in 2007 to help people battling cancer with a focus on women and what they mean to us in our daily lives! Since that time the program has evolved to be the driving force of change in the way this country is fund raising.
We have taken the theme of the Public Safety with pink fire trucks and pink police cars to serve our community by putting people first instead of causes. We believe that money raised in our communities, counties and states should remain there, giving us the option to either put it towards research or deliver one hundred percent of the money generated by fundraisers to the people that need it most! We believe that too often a community's labor of love to raise money through volunteerism results in very little of that money actually going to the people that need it most.
We’re one of the only charities that help other charities and tax based organizations raise money with our brand without having to control the fundraising dollars. Our goal at the national level is to create chapters to help implement this program in each one of our communities throughout the country. 100% of the money raised under the Pink Heals umbrella goes right back to the public, either by way of local charity or actual people in need of help! Local chapters support your efforts and will help deliver your fund raising to the beneficiary(s) chosen so long as they meet our criterion of being truly selfless and not for profit. No one should benefit from the illnesses and misfortune of others. It's time to bring fund raising back as it was intended in our hearts - to help one another without expecting anything in return!
How are we able to operate if none of the donated dollars are kept within our organization?
We have created a brand with our clothing line and merchandise that is sold locally and nationally to help operate our Non-profit. Monies raised operate the trucks and pay for the tour. There are no salaries, no pensions, and no hidden agendas. Your generosity in purchasing our merchandise guarantees that we can continue to reach out to communities across the nation and provide our program to them for free. We guarantee that if your community adopts our program and implements it as intended that 100% of fund raising dollars will be directed right back into your community.

A woman to whom I owe a most special "Thank You" for believing in me (Dave Graybill) and the vision of this initiative, Pink Heals.
We are focused on our charity’s ability to bring about long lasting and meaningful change in the lives of people and communities by helping to create immediate funds through tax based organizations such as but not limited to our first line of defense The Fire and Police Forces.
About The Founder of Pink Heals
The Pink Heals Program was conceived and founded by Dave Graybill, a retired firefighter and former professional athlete. A loving father of two healthy children who selflessly spent his inheritance to golf across America to raise money for sick children. A visionary man who has made it his philanthropic mission to change the manner in which our country fund raises from one that focuses on causes and ribbons to one that focuses on the human element again and keeps monies raised in a community within that community to benefit its people. The Pink Heals Program has evolved from a single fire truck driven by a single fire fighter (Dave Graybill) to over 150 trucks in 3 countries driven by hundreds of volunteers on a mission to keep fund raising local to support the communities themselves. What started out as a mission that focused on a single disease has evolved into a Program that can heal all things.
Dave’s visionary leadership has turned the trucks around and Pink Heals is the vehicle that this country is using to drive home much needed support for a wide range of community based initiatives. Thank you for your interest in this program. Please read on and peruse our website to learn more about the program and how you can bring this initiative to your own city or town.
