Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Do you ever think that there is nothing you can to do to help people because you don't have time to volunteer or don't have the money to donate....

There is something simple you can do to help families that take refuge at the Ronald McDonald Houses. You can begin collecting pop tabs from aluminum cans. Check out this website to see what it's all about.

We started this as a philanthropy project at my son's school. The kids get so excited to bring their bags of pop tabs. According to the Ronald McDonald House Website a gallon of pop tabs is worth about $1. 49 but I look at it this way....It's something that you were throwing away so why not keep it and do some good from it. If adds up over time!

You never know when you or someone you know might need to use the Ronald McDonald House. For more information about the Ronald McDonald House Charities click here.

When I was a kid my school totally did this! We saved them in our classroom and every time our class got to 100, we would bring them to these huge garbage cans outside the cafeteria and then change the big running total on the wall. They were trying to show us how big the number one million was... it took like 10 years and 8 big cans but they got to one million! I was long gone by then but my mom worked there and I went back to see it! It was amazing!
