Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2015
For the general hobby metal detectorist, soda pop tabs are the arch nemesis; due to the preconceived notion that there may be treasure under their feet. Many take their machine out for a hunt with dreams of finding coins, rings, jewelry or even relics just beneath the surface. However, finding trash is inevitable in the sport, and many come across a soda pop tab more often than not.
Kellyco Metal Detectors of Winter Springs, Florida has recently launched a Dig & Donate campaign to collect these pop tabs. Although the small aluminum tabs (pulled from soda cans, fruit or vegetable cans and more) are generally considered to be trash, Kellyco has decided to reach out to their world-wide community of treasure hunters and ask for pull tab donations. Cleaning up the environment is one beneficial by-product of the metal detecting hobby, but Kellyco wants to take it a step further and put some trash to good use.
The Dig & Donate campaign, which launched just a few weeks ago, is already showing to be a huge success with thousands of donations collected at Kellycos Central Florida showroom thus far. So what is Kellyco going to do with all these pop tabs? For every donation received by July 20, 2015, participants will be entered into a drawing of various grand prizes totaling over $ 26,000 in value. Each grand prize has been graciously donated to the campaign by leading metal detector manufacturers such as Minelab, Garrett, Fisher Research Labs, Whites Electronics and Nokta. Drawings for each prize will take place at Kellycos grand re-opening event which will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2015.
Thats just the beginning though. During the first week of August, Kellyco has pledged to turn over the entire pop tab collection to the Ronald McDonald House Charities
