Sock It To Me Month!

socksThat's me, rather my socked foot "kicking off" SOCK it to ME MONTH. Purchased 2 large packages of socks the other day to get's us started with March's "SOCK it to ME MONTH". Thank you Sherri I, adding your money I was able to buy both packages. AND the bonus here the regular packages contain 10 pairs of socks, but they had a special in that each contained 11 pairs....bonus! 22 pairs of clean, warm, and dry socks for those in need. This is our 2nd month in a row with a focus on feet.

Feet are so important they need to be taken care of so they...the feet can take better care of the rest of the body. Yesterday ended our February focus on slippers, Toasty Tootsie's, and as of the writing of this post we collected 8 pairs of slippers. Thanks to all who participated in that special project. I'm hopeful, we'll continue to receive slippers....perhaps some are still in transit with today just being March 1st.

As with all our special projects, Toasty Tootsie's won't go away never to be heard from again, it will for now be dormant (like Give a Square). We collect all items Hats, Scarves, Mittens, Slippers, and Socks all year long. This will be our 2nd Sock it to me Month, as we had one in June of 2010.

Socks should be store bought and primarily be for adults (mostly males); as they are the bulk of those living outdoors. The men in the shelters are also in need of socks.

I'm still in the hunt for emails for Patty L from Ohio, Adrienne L from NY. PLEASE folks another reminder to include an email, blog url, or group we might be in together as means of contact. I know many of you by your avatars from groups, or from your email which typically isn't your real name so when fabulous donations came with a real name it sends me on quite a hunt to figure out who's who.

Scarves 100
Hats 170
Mittens (gloves) 55
Socks 41
Slippers 8
Ghans 10
Squares 171
Sweaters 5

Please remember all donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. It truly DOES make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
