I have an obsession with collecting tabs from tin cans. People have seen me pick them up in parking lots, take them off the drinks they are drinking from, and I have asked complete strangers, “May I have your tab?”
All for a good cause, of course!
Every since my friend Jessica, told me she collected tabs for the Ronald McDonald House, I was hooked. It was simple, easy, and anyone could participate. So why tabs?
The Ronald McDonald House Charities uses these tabs to collect funds for people and patients that stay in the house while receiving medical care.
On the back of every cardboard house that is used to collect tabs you can find the following passage, “Pull For the Ronald McDonald House: Recycled beverage tabs help your local Ronald McDonald House, a ‘home away from home’ for families of children with serious illnesses who are undergoing treatment at nearby medical facilities.”
So put your tabs to better use, instead of throwing them away.

Until next time,
Here’s to always being your B.E.S.T!
