How do soda can tabs help exactly?
In at least the last two places I've worked, there's been a cup or tub in the break room where people drop the tabs off their soda cans "for Ronald McDonald House." I've never quite been clear on how this helps; nobody seems to be taking credit for redeeming the tabs in exchange for donations or anything. It can't be that the Ronald McDonald House is selling the aluminum for profit; that'd have to be about the least efficient fundraising method ever invented. Anyone care to enlighten me?
