Kara Cares - Pull Tabs for Charity
What is Kara Cares?
Kara Cares was launched to support children and families by collecting and donating soda pop, soup, and canned food tabs. These tabs help support the Ronald McDonald House of Maryland, a "home-away-from-home" for the families of seriously ill children being treated in nearby hospitals.
Pop-tabs remind us of an important lesson: even little things make a big difference.
Pop-tabs helps families pay the bills. So, moms and dads need not worry about where they will stay while their children receive medical treatment.

How Can You Help?
It's EASY! JUST PULL TOGETHER!!!
Starting your own collection of pop-tabs to support Ronald McDonald House of Maryland is as easy as 1-2-3!
1 Grab one or more empty jars, buckets or bins
2 Add some Kara Cares flyers and stickers
3 Pull & collect as many pop-tabs as you can!
Hint: Ask all your friends & family to pull pop-tabs too! Imagine how many pop-tabs you can collect if you all Pull Together!
When your collection of pull-tabs gets big enough, bring your tabs to our designated tab donation center at 401 E Jefferson Avenue Towson, MD 21286 - get directions here. You can also donate your tabs directly to Ronald McDonald House of Maryland, or find your local RMH Chapter to support.

About Kara Cares
Giving Back & Paying Forward
Kara's parents, John & Nicole Groff Sr. spent time at the Ronald McDonald House house in 2001 after Kara suffered from meningitis and a series of strokes. While Hopkins took care of their daughter, RMH took care of them. The family was concerned, exhausted and raw, and the folks at Ronald McDonald House made sure they had meals, clean clothes, and a bed to rest their weary souls.
Now Kara and Kara Cares are helping other families that need support, just like her family did. In her parents' eyes as well as others that know her, Kara is a young hero. Kara hopes that her story and her efforts will inspire and encourage others to take action. Every little bit helps, and WE ARE Making a Difference!
