While I’m not in the age bracket of 12-14 years old, I do have a mitzvah that I’m trying to do and need help. I am 74 years of age and I’m collecting pull-top tabs from soda, beer, soup, vegetables, and pet food cans (any type of tab). There were 6,000,000 Jews murdered during the holocaust and of that number 1,500,000 were children. I would like to collect 1.5M tabs to have a visual to remember the children at a memorial service. I live in Roanoke, VA, but Roanoke, and surrounding areas, is a small city of 280,000 and we could use help in collecting these tabs. At this time I have about 350,000 tabs but need so many more. Tabs have come in from CA, IN, NC, and GA. I might add that I got this idea after seeing the documentary, “Paper Clips”. This was about a school in TN that was studying the holocaust and decided to collect 6M paper clips.
So, you see that the tabs continue to “give” to those that need.
TEMPLE EMANUEL, Roanoke, VA is collecting pull-up tabs for a future HOLOCAUST PRESENTATION. Our goal is 1,500,000 tabs to honor the memory of the 1.5 million Jewish children murdered during the Holocaust. Tabs of any size, any color, any material are acceptable. You can find tabs on soda, beer, soup, vegetable, fruit, dog/cat food cans and many other items. After the presentation, all tabs will be donated to The Ronald McDonald House for their fundraising efforts. Whether it is ten tabs or 100 tabs, WE APPRECIATE YOUR PARTICIPATION.
THERE IS NO DEADLINE, WE COLLECT UNTIL WE REACH OUR GOAL OF 1,500,000
