A mother's idea to give back to an incredible cause has gripped the Riverina with thousands of lids donated towards building prosthetics.
The Little Green Truck is the latest business to jump on board with Lids4Kids which started up locally in July.
SInce then, more than 72,000 lids have been washed, sorted and donated to the cause.
Co-owner of Little Green Truck Wagga, Leanne Sainsbury, said they were taking the first load of lids to Canberra.
"When we heard about it, we knew it was something we wanted to help with," she said.
The idea comes from Envision Hands, a not-for-profit organisation based in Wheelers Hill in Victoria, which shreds low and high density (Numbers 2 and 4) bottle lids to construct arms and hands.
Cassie Hodges, the Wagga co-ordinator for Lids4Kids, said she was amazed by the community's response.
"The 72,00 works lids out to be about 144 hands made," she said.
"The word is spreading, and it is spreading fast.
"A lot of schools are coming on board for counting and volunteering to wash them."
According to Envision, approximately 250 lids are used to make a small hand. However, the wastage ends up being about 500 lids by the time it has been made.
For an arm, approximately 500 lids are used with wastage of approximately 1000 caps.
The organisation currently uses all flat soft drink, water and milk bottle tops, including those from long-life containers.
Toby Bowering, the owner of the Jail Brake Inn, has been operating as a drop-off point.
"I just want to thank all the people who have donated," he said. "Thanks to Junee Public School and Kildare College for sorting and cleaning them."
Other drop off-points for lids (please wash if possible) include Kooringal Post Office and Ray Ray's Diner. For the full list, head to the Riverina Lids4KIds Facebook page.
