Reaching Beyond here on Bridge and Beyond

 Thank you Cheri and cousin Jackie.  I know (online) Cheri from Find A Grave (where we post to document gravesstones).  Cheri and I also connected on Facebook where I read a post regarding homeless folks her cousin was trying to help.  Followed the links along and connected with her cousin Jackie.  
Jackie hikes in the woods and has run into several homeless guys that's she's trying to aid with warm items, food etc.  I sent her a box of hats, scarves, socks, and personal care items to extend our borders ...beyond.  After all, the name of our mission is Bridge and Beyond........

I've blurred the box so as not to post Jackie's address and I've heard back that she has indeed received our donation.  So thank you Cheri and Jackie for caring, the flowers for you.  I hope the box of donations from Bridge and Beyond and the many good folks here that make donations possible is of help in your quest there in Indiana.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

Knitting and Crocheting and Donating for the Homeless

 Lovely warm knitted slippers, and wrists warmers and crocheted mittens from our friend Joyce B.  A few posts back you saw another part of her recent donation that she dropped off for me while in town to support to her family involved in The Marathon.  What a wonderful and thoughtful donation of goodies for Ohio's homeless and others in need.  Many thanks Joyce for all your hard work.  Extra thanks for tagging your slippers etc with size for us.  I hope you and your family enjoyed your time here in town.
You can see, Joyce has truly been busy.  Here's more!  Lovely cotton washcloths, knitted in many colors and styles.  Awesome and always so very much appreciated.

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?
