WELCOME, and Why EntreCard

You may have noticed something new on my blog. I have added EntreCard to this blog. You'll see this in a 125 x 125 type ad with a bright gold banner and heading Drop Here. This is not an ad I'm being paid for; nor one I bought. This is a means of spreading one's business cards. At least that's the short version as I see it. I've decided to try several methods of spreading the news of the cause for our cold homeless here in Central Ohio; as well as those treated in the 2 free clinics. Homelessness is a horrible problem and it's wide spread throughout the country. My hope is to spread the awareness of the general problem, as well as find more helping hands for this mission. We've broaden our original scope from warming men who were living under a particular bridge a year ago. We're now able to help not only those men (and now women who are also there), but other's living outside without a roof over their heads in several other areas here; as well as women and children treated in 2 free clinics.

More helping hands gives us the ability to warm and help more in need, thus my quest with your help.

My hope is to have more visibility for this blog through the addition of EntreCard. I welcome knitters, crocheters, and loomers all interested in helping the homeless. Please feel free to see what's been accomplished by reading through the blog, leave comments, admire the work so many have done. We welcome additional helping hands. If you'd like to help, but don't know where to begin, please read How Can I Help by clicking on the tab under the title of the blog.

Many thanks for all the work to date, and welcome to all new readers. Please leave a comment so we know you were here.

  2. Sandy, just FYI. I tried the Entre Card for about a week. I happened to check one of the cards dropped on my blog. It was X Rated! It was some sick person's disgusting blog. Did you put some kind of filter on your Entre card to weed this kind of thing out?

  4. Yes Alma, I screen every ad first. I do not use the automatic approval setting. I've used EC for about a year without any problems on my travel blog so am pretty comfortable with that portion of it. Thanks though for the heads up, it's always good to speak up. You never know who's aware of what. In addition, I have all my blogs set to not allow adult content which also flags things.

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?
