I was wondering what i could do with all the soda can tabs my family has. I decided a belt and/or a purse would be cool if it was made out of them. Does anyone have any idea where I
Here's some directions for a belt.
forget the crafts - you can donate them to the Ronald McDonald houses (housing for family of ill children during hospitalization.) Google it. It's a much worthier cause.
the tabs are able to be recycled much easier and cheaper than the soda cans. the ronald mcdonald house gets them and gets money for them
here's another sight for a belt:
The rumor about Ronald McDonald house using these is just that - a rumor. It's on Snopes.com
Sorry Susie, you are wrong. First, your answer did not addresse the posters question, which was about making belts.
There are about a dozen YouTube videos on the topic, and this is the leading Face book page on the topic
Lotta good pictures there, many craft techniques, and more importantly, craft grade tab suppliers.
Now, as for this stupid snopes page calling tab redemption a myth, which is probably the most misquoted page in all of snopes...the only urban myth to the McDonalds Article on snopes, is snopes itself. RMDH (Ronald McDonald's House) has been trying to get the snopes page on this subject removed since 2005, but the pure arrogance of snopes is that they are never wrong.
McDonalds House Charities does in fact still accept pull tabs as part of their fundraising. They have been collecting them since 1987 at MOST McDonald houses. In 1992, the McDonald's Corporation itself joined the tabs for RMDH program, making it simpler to collect tabs.
I personally have donated 23.5 million tabs to RMDH, as in I actually walked into the building and donated them, so there is no doubt that I am right, and snopes is wrong. I would add that I account for 2.4% of all the tabs collected in this program by myself, and have organized a dozen Upper Michigan Scouting Units to collect another 40 million tabs.
It is estimated that RMDH will surpass 1 Billion tabs in the first week of August 2014
