To provide Visionary Leaders and the general public with a program that maintains fund raising dollars locally in support of women and their families.
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 through fund raising dollars that remain local!
“The Pink Heals Tour and the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” program is about our community, our family, our neighbors, and our leaders and how it will help bring us back together to focus on our own people now, rather than on promises that were never kept, opportunities that were lost, and things that might have been. Pink will heal as long as we do it in service to our women and what they mean to us in our communities, not just because they are sick or struggling with adversity. For if we use illness as the sole motivation for action, once the sickness is gone, so is the reason for coming together.” Dave Graybill
Pink Heals was founded in 2007 by Dave Graybill to give our elected leaders a program that supports the people that elected them by keeping fund raising dollars in their community.
It’s time for a change! Our goal is to bring the Pink Heals Initiative to every community in the nation. Millions of dollars within each state could be directed back to the citizens who vote, pay taxes and who selflessly raised that money instead of supporting large corporate salaries, pensions and over head.
How Does It Work?
Pink Heals is an umbrella under which all local non profits, research facilities, groups and individuals can benefit because our organization does not take any part of the donations to sustain itself. Our goal is to see 100% of the money generated under our mission statement given back to local non profits, local research or individuals in the community that raised that money!
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. Only the sale of our merchandise sustains us. We do not take any portion of a community’s fund raising dollars or donations. We are here to show our support and the presence of our logo at fund raisers, in a business window, etc. symbolizes that organizations commitment to raising money and keeping it local.
“Karen” with Karen our first truck!
A special thank you, Karen, for believing in me, my dream and the start of making Pink Heals a reality.
