Donating Personal Care Items

cotton washclothsThank you Liz (minnisoda in the ville), for this wonderful donation of 18 knitted and crocheted cotton washcloths and 16 soaps. She got her hubby involved by asking him to collect in his business travels...see how they add up. Awesome colorful cotton cloths, some knitted corner to corner, others side to side. Likewise with those crocheted. Lots of fun and interesting colors. Beautifully made, and so much appreciated Liz. Many thanks.

With summer here and people out and about traveling both for business and or family vacations, please do save your soaps shampoo's etc from the hotels and send them along with your next donation. They often don't get used in your travels because they're not your brand, but do pack them and bring them home with you. They are perfect for adding to our personal care packages for the homeless and those in need. Can you imagine spending the night in a shelter and wanting a shower but not having soap to take one? We can help with this very simple item and make people feel better.

  2. I'll bet each of these cloths takes the time of one TV program... a great way to use your hands while the mind is elsewhere! That's how I make my hats, although the hats take more than one program. Nice work!

  3. OH shoot -- I forgot to say -- while in Michael's this week (can't pass up that 50% off coupon, you know) I saw a whole little instruction book for "washcloths." This would make such a good project to teach children how to knit or crochet .... hint hint.

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?
