The Craftsman brand, as the center part of their new “Made to Make” campaign, has just hit the road with the “Make a Difference” Tour together with the non-profit Rebuilding Together and Sears Heroes at Home. Throughout the summer they will be restoring the homes of military veterans, take part of local restoration projects as well as visit disaster relief zones and consumer events across the country.
They will be moving around with a 36-ft trailer and a big toolbox on wheels – a truck filled with all the necessary tools they might need to do the work. The idea is also to inspire Americans to take out their tools and start working with their hands. And help their communities along the way.
“We believe all Americans can build, create and shape their worlds, from the smallest of home projects to the tallest of buildings. And, we enjoy the pride in seeing our passion for making come to life,” said Michael Castleman from Craftsman.
The stop-schedule can be seen and the entire tour can be followed at Craftsman.com/MakeaDifference. The first stop was in Moonachie, N.J., during the National Rebuilding Day. And the crew, lead by Ty Pennington, restored a home owned by a U.S. veteran, a home that was devastated by Sandy.
