Ty Pennington Launches Community-Focused "Do It Together" Traveling Toolboxes with Rebuilding Together

The Sears Blue Tool Crew, with the help of Ty Pennington, announces the next "Do It Together" (DIT) initiative – the second annual "Unsung Heroes: Dads Making a Difference" Father's Day contest. Recognizing dads nationwide who use their tools to do good works for their communities, the Sears Blue Tool Crew contest is seeking entries that spotlight the work of fathers who serve as exemplary role models. Americans will vote to help select the winner of a grand prize worth $30,000 for use in the community.
The "Dads Making a Difference" contest is one of many programs within the Sears Blue Tool Crew's "Do It Together" campaign, which celebrates unsung heroes who use their tools and talents together for the greater good of the community.
While in Las Vegas, Ty Pennington and the Sears Blue Tool Crew also joined with Rebuilding Together, Sears Holdings' Heroes at Home partner, to help make essential renovations to the home of veteran Bryan Hurt, his wife Patricia and their six children.  The first-ever DIT Traveling Toolbox – a toolbox packed with an assortment of Craftsman power and hand tools – will be delivered by the Sears Blue Tool Crew – to help provide wheelchair accessibility, plumbing, electrical, weatherization and painting to the Hurt family.

In addition to the toolbox for Rebuilding Together, DIT Traveling Toolboxes will be criss-crossing the country to support individuals doing great things who may not have access to the tools and materials to get the job done right.  The toolboxes will be fully stocked with tools and a video camera to document the project.

From June 20 - July 3, Americans can cast their votes for which deserving dad will receive a visit from the Sears Blue Tool Crew with the tools and resources to bring their projects to life. Official contest rules are available at under the 'Dads Making a Difference' application.
The grand prize winner will be announced on Facebook on July 11.
Due to this initiative by Sears, I was sent a Craftsman 255 pc. Mechanics Tool Set with Lift Top Storage Chest (value $299.99) to try out. I was so honored to be able to give this with my kids to my hubby yesterday for Father's Day.
Raising 3 small boys, they will have a lot of years of "working" on the cars with Dad because of this state of the art tool set. My hubby was so surprised and happy. I was happy that it all came enclosed in it's own storage case. I don't like loosing parts to anything! The boys can't wait to work on Dad's car in the coming weeks. What a great bond for my boys and their Father. I know that it is moments in life that will build lasting memories for all of us.
Thank you so much Sears and the Blue Tool Crew!
