Soda/Drink/Soup Can Tab Collection

We have an idea for a project--I was thinking we could collect soda/drink/soup can tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald house.  Here is some info from the Ronald McDonald House:
What do you do with the pull-tabs? We take the pull-tabs to a local recycling center, where they are weighed and redeemed for cash per pound. This money is used to purchase gas for our shuttle that takes our families to and from area hospitals. It has been a helpful fundraiser for the House. Besides benefiting the families of RMH, collecting pull-tabs for recycling is an environmentally friendly practice as well! How can I help? Just start collecting! Pop pull-tabs off every soda, soup and food can; once you have collected a substantial number, give them to the House. Be sure to get everyone in your family, place of business, and community involved. What type of container should I use? Please use containers that are easy for us to open and empty at the recycling center. Cardboard boxes and sturdy plastic bags are ideal. Please do not use water cooler jugs or plastic milk jugs – they are very difficult to open! On our website, we have a selection of three beautiful labels to decorate your containers with, take a look! 
My thought is that we could collect, tell all of our friends and family to save them too, make a Facebook post telling the town we will be collecting, and then when we are together again put all of our tabs together and give them to the Ronald McDonald House.  What are your thoughts and questions?
Contact Mrs. Auel if you need tabs to be picked up!
