Do you drink Soda or pop...
or just plain ole' Soda Pop?
We are split down the middle in our home...
Some drink what they call Soda..
and some drink..
I drink Water. ( and lattes).
Why in the world am I asking you this?
My daughter Leah began a project of collecting Bottle Tabs, Soda Tabs, Pop Can Tabs for a Charity Organization a long time ago.
She took the following pictures just for you..
so that you would know what she has been up to.
She has been faithfully filling containers and scouring parking lots, parks, and grocery stores for this very purpose.
She has been so diligent, and has a heart of gold - this girl does.
I am sure that you have heard of this organization:
Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.
Our Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.
Here is WHY Leah collects Pop Tabs:
Collecting pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling, and raise funds to help children and their families at the same time. Some of our Chapters raise thousands of dollars with their pop tab collections.
So... Here is where YOU come in:
Would you, or your family start collecting your Pop Tabs?
Perhaps you could even leave a note here telling Leah that you will start doing this?
And an even more awesome idea would be to send them to Leah.
Leave a note,, and I will send you our address for sending your Pop Tabs!
What an amazing way for a child to do something small, in a BIG way for another family in need.
