Hi, I am not sure where to put this ----- Does anyone out there save tab tops from cat food, soda cans etc.s   I work as a flight attendant and get lots of these and would like to send them to someone for charity.  My sources have dried up here.  Maybe someone makes crafts out of them and would like them.  Please let me know.  Thanks!  I enjoy collecting them as it gives me something to do on the long hauls Grin

Maybe a lot of people can collect them for you and pm you as to where to send them. Would that be an option?

What about donating them to the Ronald McDonald House. The dontaed tabs are sold to a recycler and the House uses the proceeds to help fund programming expenses. 
Here's a few links that might help.

we also collect these for my mom who takes them to her work. They give them to a dialasys charity every month. She said that each top =s about 5 minutes I believe. If you still need somewhere to send them, I will check with mom tomorrow and see if she knows the charity or if she can accept packages at her work.
