Looking to do something GOOD for someone else?
St. Martin’s Episcopal School is collecting UPC labels from Campbell's, Pepperidge Farm & Swanson products. They're also collecting caps from V8 juice bottles. And who doesn't love V8 Splash?!
In 2009, the labels/caps redeemed earned $500 for SMES! Our pantries are already stocked with a lot of these products. And, since the empy containers are landfill bound, why not take a minute to clip the UPC label off?
There is no easier, less expensive (read: FREE) way to give!
If you don't live in Metro Atlanta OR have another school in mind, perhaps they're already enrolled in the program. There are a handfull in MY community so why not check yours:
Atlanta friends, I'm happy to turn in your labels/caps if you'd like. Email me and we can make arrangements:
For more information regarding SMES, please follow this link to their website:

Several weeks ago, while cleaning up our garage, I discovered not one but FOUR unserviceable flags that needed to be disposed of.
To clarify, the term "unserviceable flag" refers to a flag frayed around the edges, soiled, torn or faded. When the flag becomes unserviceable it is customary to destroy it by burning it in a dignified manner.
(Dignified manner = The flag should first be folded into a triangle shape and placed on a fire that is large enough to fully consume it, leaving behind only ashes. The ashes should then be buried. )
See what else they're up to: http://www.legion.org/volunteers
Anyway, if you have some old tattered flags lying around, now you know what to do with them!
For my Atlanta friends, here is the American Legion I visited:
