Hi Friends and Family! I’m writing to ask for your help in a very important cause – my college education! In an attempt to offset some of the costs of my books this year, I’ve started a campaign to recycle aluminum cans and use the money to further my education. How can you help? Do the same! Start saving your aluminum cans and when you get a bunch take them to a local recycling dealer and turn them into cash. You can either mail me a check or deposit it directly into my PayPal account! You’ll not only be helping me with some much needed funds, but you’ll be saving the environment too. Aluminum cans are infinitely recyclable and by recycling them we save 95% of the energy need to make cans. So start recycling…and thanks for your help!
