Pop Can Tabs for Charity

I've been planning to post about this for a long time now, but I have never got around to it. I have a few minutes to spare, so I wanted to know if my blog readers could help me.

For the past few years I've been saving pop cans. I take them to a recycling center near me and in addition to helping the environment, I get a little bit of money in return. Well, I also have been saving the pop can tabs from the cans. I probably have several hundred if not over a thousand pop tabs now since I started this a couple of years ago.

I was hoping someone knows of a charity that could benefit from these pop can tabs. I know the Ronald McDonald society uses them, but I really wanted to contribute to a Catholic or at least faith-based charity. Do you know of any charities that will accept pop can tabs?


Update: I have found a charity now.

I've "heard" of several different children's hospitals that use them, specifically St Jude though I've never verified that.

I save them and then I have them taken to St. Jude's in Las Vegas.
