You don't have to have Yarn to Donate and Help

personal care items for homelessThis is a wonderful donation, a non yarn donation proving once again everyone can help! You do not need to knit, you do not need to crochet, you do not need to be able to loom to donate, to make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate. While the primary mission of this blog, Bridge and Beyond is hand made donations (hats, scarves, mittens, slippers etc.), personal care items are always needed.

Thank you RoseMarie for this thoughtful donation, it's greatly needed and appreciated. RoseMarie does in fact donate with her skilled hands. These soaps (60 bars), and shampoo's (8), will be heading to Faith Mission with additional cotton washcloths I received since my delivery.

2011 Donations:

Scarves 227
Mittens (gloves) 117
Socks 80
Slippers 62
Ghans 29 (2 went to Pine Street Earlier)

Squares 280
Sweaters 5
Ponchos 58
Cotton Washcloths 233

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. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!


  1. Rosemarie gets the Scrubbing Bubbles award for all that wonderful soap! What a thoughtful donation.

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?
