Reflection

The year is fast approaching an end. A while back I posted information regarding how we began, who donated, and what we collected in a very short period of time. It was fun to look back. You can read about HERE.

Taking that a bit further, the calendar year 2009 was wonderful. We grew in members who donated, we grew in the number of people we were able to help. We grew in the number of places we were linked, listed, and known.....all translate into being more visible on the net. Being more visible on the net and word of mouth causes others to find us and join the cause. I'm very grateful for that.

In 2009, we collected 335 hats, 66 pairs of mittens, 70 pairs of socks, and 123 scarves. Isn't that wonderful. Think of the warm, the encouragement and the hope all those donations represented.

Many thanks to all who donated that year: (in no particular order)

  3. Thank you Marie Anne. Look forward to seeing the numbers grow with your help.

    Niki, off the top of my head believe you contributed in 2010 and this is the 2009 list. But, I'll go back and recheck my lists. Certainly no intent to leave anyone out. Hope to see often.

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?
