Tulip for Team Fox - the Solidarity Edition writing instruments by Montegrappa!
The sculpted pocket clip of the Tulip for Team Fox is inspired by the global symbol of Parkinson’s disease awareness and designed by Australian fine artist, Timothy John.
John was himself diagnosed with the condition in 2017. As continues to adapt to his new reality, he noticed how the symbols associated with other causes were often temporary and tokenistic. By contrast, a prestige pen could provide a poignant, lasting way to draw attention to Parkinson’s, while also raising funds for the cause.
The red tulip was formally adopted as the global symbol of Parkinson’s consciousness in 2005. Its creation came after a decade of giant strides in global awareness of the disease. Few figures have worked harder to highlight Parkinson’s disease than Michael J. Fox.
Since revealing his own diagnosis in 1998, the foundation he founded has diverted more than $800 million to Parkinson’s research. A portion of proceeds from all purchases benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s efforts to foster cooperation in the scientific community and accelerate a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
