My son works for a bowling ctr in Glen Burnie, MD who started collecting the plastic bottle caps for chemo. I had been told the child passed away so they stopped collecting. I have bags of caps in my home and was very disappointed to find out that this was a hoax!!!! I did find a company called Aveda who will accept these caps for anyone still holding caps from this pathetic hoax. I just hope that the person who started the hoax never needs to turn to the public for help!!!!! For more info contact capcollection@aveda.com or call 1-877-Aveda09.

While the actual "caps for chemo" is a hoax, the saving caps is not. They can be given to the family of the person in need and directly recycled for money, that money can be used for there treatment. However, it is difficult to find a place that recycles caps. Hope this helps.

Interesting idea, Audrey. 1) Dump the trash caps in the laps of the suffering. 2) Tell them to go find a place that accepts cheap plastic for recycling. 3) Don't worry that the value of the caps is less than the trash bags you buy to collect them in.

And to Someone in Kannapolis, if you leave the bottle caps outside on the night of a full moon, a fairy named Ashley Flores will tenderly swoop down and fly the bottle caps to a far away land to join with aluminum can pull tabs where they band together to fight e-mail viruses,#90 phone scams, needles in gasoline pumps, and Madelyn Murry O'Hair's atheist lawsuit. For your help, you will receive a free iPad.

That is so upsetting, not only to do that, but that I am just catching it. We collect a number of things through the organization that I am with and it goes to help a number of charities. Get in touch with your local TPA (Traverlers Protection Association). We collect cans, tabs, newspapers, stamps, distribute coupons, greeting cards, eyeglasses, recycleables,ink cartridges and more...Pretty much anything that can be collected and turn over for good of the community we are open to. I know that the money that we raise from cans and tabs are turned over to a scholarship for the hearing impaired. We give out over $100,000 a year on a national scale. We provide everything from school, operations, and hearing aides and such. So keep collecting what you can and get a hold of your local chapter of Traverlers Protection Association. We are on the net. TPAhq.org .

I think this is an awful "HOAX" our friends daughter asked us to collect them for her school and we have all our friends and neighbors collecting bottle caps. If anyone knows what to do with them please let us know.. This is any awful thing to do to the kids that are so proud that they are doing this for someone...

Leave the tabs outside in a black plastic bag the night of a full moon, and a fairy will collect them. For your help, you will receive a free iPad.

It is true, I am doing it myself to help someone that is giveing the caps to who it is suppose to go to. I will find out where they are being taken and I will post what I learned so Please come back.
Please let me know. We are also collecting at the request of a church member but they don't know the organization the caps are turned over to. It is stated that a child is receiving the treatments.

Perhaps they stopped collecting bottle caps because no charity accepts them? What you fell for is an ancient hoax about collecting junk for charity.
It began with the myth of collecting match box covers for an artificial leg, and has morphed into collecting empty cigarette packs, cigar wrappers, coffee can lids, aluminum can pull tabs, and now plastic bottle tops. The recepients of the generosity would receive, depending on the myth, an iron lung, hospital bed, wheelchair, kidney dialysis, or chemotherapy.
Read about this history at http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/comments/4...
Please quit telling people that this is all a hoax. Go to the Ronald McDonald House website and you will see that YES! You can donate the aluminum can pull tabs to them!
