Scarves Keep Homeless Warm

Mary H. Has been super busy folks.  Look at all these wonderful scarves.  Pick a color, any color.  I love the variety of this thoughtful box of scarves.  I love the nice darker colors so prefect for our friends living out in the elements.  These colors work for men and women.  These colors don't show the dirt and these colors don't call attention.  That's something important to Homeless.  So often they are bullied and or harassed by. Law Enforcemet and others, that not calling attention to themselves is an important part of self protection.  But, wait...This is ONLY one.
Mary sent 2 boxes of scarves!  Woot Woot!  Join me in thanking Mary for generous donation and her big heart.  Without big hearts, where would we be in helping the homeless who need us?

Please keep up the good work, Mary.  You are awesome.

A Generous Donation from New York Warms Ohio's Homeless

Thank you AnneMarie for this awesome and thoughtful donation of hats, slippers,  cotton washcloths and an afghan!  As always you are very generous with your time and your talent.  Thank you for taking the time. To attach tags with sizes for the hats and slippers.  That saves sooooo much time for me, and for those at the various shelters.  It's helps get things on the right shelves in order to reach the people who need them.  Many colors and sizes, and styles to warm lots of folks in needs.  Wonderful as always.  The cotton washcloths are always a hit and are used several ways.  The afghan below is gorgeous.  It will warm and delight whomever wraps up in it.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
