Please save your plastic bottle tops and drop them off at the Beachcomber when passing. These will help a little girl from Los Gallardos get the lung transplant in the USA she desperately needs. Thank you.

I would love this to be true   .......    BUT  ....... have you ever looked up 'plastic bottle tops' on 'Snopes'  web site!!! This is a lovely idea and I for one would make every effort to collect the caps IF I thought it would help, but I fear it may be a very worthy cause but just not a real one.

Yes I've seen the references but hope the Spanish collection is for real. I have asked for some confirmation and possible proof of it being for real, I'll be the first to post if its not, thank you, John.

Us too, but have found this on the Internet: http://www.hoax-slayer.com/plastic-caps-cancer-chemo-hoax.shtml

If you find out otherwise John, would be only too happy to save them.

Hi, it looks like this one is for real and the tops are bought for 300 a ton I'm told. Here is a link to a for sale site in Benidorm and there are mentions of collections being successful in the Benidorm area and one is nationwide as can be seen below.


https://www.facebook.com/groups/sellyourstuffspain/ (My post yesterday showing pic of bottle tops)


Debbie Turner de Alvarez
I am in contact with aitanas dad the little girl that needed the transplant in Boston. Heart recontruction and lung transplant. She has had the op and is doing Well, still in Boston but doing Well. The company that collected for aitanas family are fundacion seur and they had the whole of Spain backing them and that was why they raised the 130,000 through plastic tops, the other 70,000 was through fundraiser events. I Did ask seur but they now have a Waiting list and told me next year which is no use to us (they were VERY rude and unhelpful) so that is why i have been going around everywhere asking for their help in Our community, we are benidorm and they are Spain which is unfair in My opinion and the FACT that they keep using aitanas name when REALLY in this moment in time aitanas had her op etc..... Yes she needs a further op but cannot have it till later when she fully recovers from this one. Please find out Who collects your tops from your drop off and if it is seur Please remember there are Kids in Our community needing the support i.e Keira and the lil boy mentioned above luca. Thank you.

please help collecting them unless I find out otherwise, John.

Plastic bottle tops are being collected in this area for the Lazarus Project. This is to help a local Albox man ( there has been a post on here already) Rizos have a box in the shop as do several other shops/businesses in Albox.

And another one with a little girl that has already had her heart and lung operation thanks to bottle tops (In part no doubt) time to start collecting folks, John.
