Donating Water Bottle Caps for Cancer?

Where can I find someone who is accepting water caps for cancer? There was a friend's ex-wife who was doing it, but I was told no longer. Anyway I had my church friend helping me out in this area. My mom, one of my sons had died of cancer and I myself have cancer.

Snopes says that this campaign was false:

That said, if you are looking to do something useful with them other than recycle, they do sell on eBay. The SOLD amounts are not high, but you could then donate the cash to your favorite cancer related charity.

Over 1/2 of the last listed packages of tops sold. They average $8 in sales PER lot (lot means sold by the pound or a select number like 1000 pieces and most often sorted by color).

Here are examples of sold auctions if you want to go that route:

Prayers for you and all affected by cancer.

This was a hoax. The value of the plastic is low. You can donate to several organizations that use the money for wheelchairs and other good causes.

I am so sorry to tell you that this was a hoax and a bad one too. I get angry when people try to scam people with hoxes like. If it was true then this was a good thing to help out cancer patients. I am not sure why a person did this but they did. I am so sorry.
