The miracle of charity: Turning bottle caps into wheelchairs for disabled basketball players
IWOG IS RESUMING ITS BOTTLE TOP COLLECTING.
Please bring yours to our meetings. A ton of bottle caps (roughly around 540,000) can yield 120€, which is the starting price of a wheelchair. The cap movement, that began through social media, soon grew as people began to gather plastic bottle tops for a good cause. Schools, hospitals and many other organizations around Greece are all involved in drives to collect plastic caps to recycle in order to help the environment as well as people in need of wheelchairs.
