Smiles and Appreciation from under the Bridge.

Wanted to tell you all a bit about last Saturdays delivery to our folks under the bridge. It was cold, we were having freezing rain when Rae took the donations. There were lots of happy people with smiles on their faces as they put on hats, and scarfs to ward off the elements. Buckeye Fans among them, the men were excited about getting the Scarlet and Grey items!

Rae's been trying to obtain some tarps, and ropes from hardware stores (hoping for some donations where possible), so they could make a shelter of sorts from the rain, and wind etc. A few are lucky enough to have a tent. I'll be checking back with her to see if she was able to obtain any tents, or tarps and let you know.

Some of our earlier items were packed in donated/used packbacks along with some personal care items like toothbrushes, soap, towels and the like and given to them just prior to Christmas. You all helped in making them know people do care.

Hugs to all, and now...I hear yarn calling my name.

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?
