As part of the global ‘Screw Cancer’ campaign, the aim behind the collaboration between Hofer Studio and cause-innovation company Grappleworks was to create a useful, well-designed tool that would also be able to raise substantial funds for charity.
By purchasing the E1 Multi 8 screwdriver, the buyer will be donating 40% of the total cost to one of the cancer-fighting charity partners so that they can help fund important care, treatment and support for patients and their loved ones.
Hofer’s aim was to turn the screwdriver into a desirable, aesthetically pleasing object, that isn’t just tucked away in a toolbox in the garage, but something that could be presented as a luxury gift, perfect for cancer survivors, sufferers and supporters.
The tool itself is ergonomically designed to fit into any size of hand, with the eight useful tips stored under a magnetic cap at the end of the screwdriver, keeping them out of sight.
“The Screw Cancer screwdriver will be used for years and act as a reminder of the need to continue to raise awareness and funds for cancer support in the region,” says Tracey Bailey, president and CEO of the Grand River Hospital Foundation.
The screwdriver is designed with durability in mind and comes with a lifetime guarantee – it can be purchased online for $50 here.
